Winter’s on the way as we return to River Cottage to join Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall who is growing, rearing, fishing and foraging for an array of winter treats. With his produce, he hopes to turn this traditionally chilly season into the warmest of the year.
Catching fish is one of Hugh’s great passions and he decides to take on free diving. After a crash course in holding huge breaths under water, he takes to the open sea to try and bag the ultimate of shellfish – scallops.
Foraging guru John Wright and Hugh snuffle about the woods looking for mushrooms, all of which will be destined for a succulent mushroom tart.
Also, Hugh’s Landshare campaign has been growing through the summer with more people finding local land on which to grow and rear their own food.
