2.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the Pale, 27 Nov 2009
This review is from: Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: Beyond River Cottage [DVD] (DVD)
As the name suggests this is not set at River Cottage - this is all about Hugh buying a farm and setting up a restaurant

Gone is the charm of River Cottage 1-3

This is all about Hugh setting up a restaurant elsewhere - and up sizing from a small holding supplimented with local / wild food to his own farm (but without the technical farming husbandary / rare breeds / Farming and willdife bit which was all very sadly lacking

The Beyond series all about River Cottage as commercial brand - HFW fans will feel this is a commercial sell out !

RC 1-3 may have been contrived but they were also charming and inspiring for anyone wanting to get into self -sufficiency or small holding - Beyond RC is just too commercial.

Gone are most of the country characters and organic gurus and wild food experts
Hugh cant even be bothered to do all the presentation himself he gets his staff in to demonstrate.

Not Impressed. Buy the fore runner of RC - A cook on the wild side instead !
