Gastronomically, Hugh could sell snow to Eskimos !!,
This review is from: The River Cottage Cookbook (Hardcover)
An avid watcher of all the 'River Cottage' series and a fan of the book, I have come to the conclusion that Hugh could indeed sell snow to Eskimos. Mr FW can make anything seem appetising (although I have to admit to probablly rather prefering his calfs testicles on toast than to the inky cuttlefish which he lovingly prepared and disected in the 'River cottage' bath.....these gastronomic delights do not appear in the cookbook!).
The book accompanies the first two series of 'River Cottage' and is a fascinating insight to the whole process of growing your own food (meat & veg), preparing it and eating it. 'Food for free' features throughout as well as useful guidance for anyone considering keeping livestock or poultry for the first time. The book is BIG.....full of colour photos....full of recipes and above all a glimpse into the mind of very likeable, cast iron stomached, Hugh FW himself.
