Reviews

There is something especially pleasurable about the mix of whiling away a sunny day by the sea and fi lling up a bucket with nature's finest free edible bounty. So, if the idea of digging around in rock pools for your dinner excites the hunter-gatherer in you, as much as it tickles your taste buds, then this DVD is for you.

Follow in the footsteps of one of the country s favourite foraging experts, John Wright, as he winkles out winkles, gets upbeat about sea beet and warms the cockles of your heart with his cockle collecting... and join Hugh too as he gets involved in some of John's wild seaside adventures!

In this thorough guide to the edible seashore, John shows you how to identify and unearth the tastiest edible plants, from fl avour-packed wild versions of such supermarket staples as garlic, fennel, mustard and rocket to exotic Alexanders and rock samphire. There s also step-by-step advice on how to make the most of the amazing harvest that is seaweed and everything you need to know about how to catch and cook the fi nest molluscs and crustaceans, from limpets to lobsters. With plenty of recipes from both Hugh and John you won't be short of wonderful ways to put your free foraged harvest to its tastiest uses.

Sit back and enjoy more than two hours of informative fun.

As always, this DVD from the River Cottage team is both entertaining and informative. My one problem with this DVD is a problem that is common with all the River Cottage "special" DVDs (River Cottage Bread etc); if you have been collecting the DVDs of the different TV series, you will already have some of the material that is on the "new" DVD. By chance I have just started watching my last River Cottage DVD "A cook o the wild side"; which I think was the first series that Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall made. I would estimate that I have I have already seen about a third of the scenes reused in later DVDs. A little more clarity about how much new material there is on the DVD would be appreciated.

I love the River Cottage series and I have watched every bit of Hugh's work.There are elements/scenes that are been repeated from other older series of River Cottage but they go with the content and theme of the book so I didnt mind a lot.I bought the DVD so to make sure I apply what the book says correctly. Especially the one about the razor clams.There is a fantastic footage regarding the various fish/crab/shrimp traps which I really liked. Generally I feel the Edible Seashore DVD is for visual kinesthetic viewers, who can appreciate/intepret information better if they see it.Goes hand in hand with its book.Definitely recommended!

This is actually a rather nice, gentle exploration of what can be found to eat along the coast and covers a great deal of material and John Wright does a good job in presenting it. It is great to see exactly how you get razor clams and how to put out a pot from the beach to catch crabs and lobsters. Seaweeds - a very neglected area of foraging - is covered in some depth, as are the seaside plants. I thought the recipes were good too. I quite agree with the one star reviewer that the cover and title misrepresent the DVD - Hugh is hardly in it - but one star is a mean reflection of the many good qualities of this DVD. If you want to know how to forage along the shore then I highly recommend it - if you want to see Hugh foraging along the shore then it is not for you. I would have given it five stars but have knocked one off because of the misrepresentation

The DVD really goes with the Handbook of the same name...to me I had always thought that something stuck to a rock wasn't worth the trouble...especially when it came to eating...food, nah! I'd prefer going to the chippy for a fish...
As for seaweed...that was something that felt slippery when trying to walk in the sea whilst on holiday...
This DVD certainly opens my eyes as to exactly just what is there...and its free!
