Right Mix - Hugh F-W does it again. We get just the right mix of informative information about farm-side growing of meats and veggies, diversions into how meats (particularly) are processed and treated by industrial farming methods, and transforming people's attitudes, values and practices that help each to find a healthier, less stressful, more enjoyable food and cooking practice. Hugh works with each group of folks he brings onto the farm in a very compassionate way, because each has had to make life compromises or has had life compromises foistered upon them, neuroses, fears, and challenges. He manages to find experiences and opportunities for each and supports them as they take on these frailties, fears and limitations. Also got some really great moreish succulent, lip-smacking, tummy-rumbling food recipes.

This has a similar feel in many respects to Steins "Food Heroes" (in so far as Hugh travels the country to partake in a variety of food related activities), it isn't terrible by any means but my main gripe is the price for what you get. Yes, Hugh's travels around the country in order to experience & source local/regional foods are still interesting & there are still some fascinating features & very good recipes & Hugh never disappoints with his free & easy style of presenting, it's just that all the other River Cottage DVDs are so much better (& you get more for your hard earned cash) - I'm a great fan of Hugh's work & he beats much of what else is available, hands down but I would suggest any of the other River Cottage DVDs would be a better buy , or failing that ,the excellent Edwardian House DVD.
The quest for curried goat in Birminham & the subsequent Pirates of the Carribean style party, that Hugh hosts, is the highlight for me.
If this was available for about a tenner I might not feel that this was one River Cottage DVD franchise,too far !!

Standard and typical series of programmes where the intrepid H. F.-W. goes around the country in a way that he hasn't since the finale of 'A Cook on the Wild Side' and the start of the 'River Cottage' adventure he's undertaken in Dorset for many years now...
Ever on the lookout for ideas and bringing to the fore what is happening around his interests (that have simply become mine and many others) in the events of the smallholder and also typical isolated country events...Love it...

I would rate this higher if I could find it in Sweden.

I recommend this to everyone who like nature and food
