My husband and I love Hugh. The River Cottage series was great, but we really loved the Summer series. We live in country Victoria, Australia and are surrounded by sheep, cattle, ducks, chooks, fish, fruit & veges - all the things Hugh specialises in cooking. We were stunned to see him make wine from gorse flowers - what a hoot, we have acres of the stuff here. Wonder if we'll ever see it at the local farmers' market.

Hugh is one of my heros. His simple 'have-a-go' approach to life and food is inspirational. Keep up the great work Hugh.

Hi everyone i'm from Western Australia in a suburb called Mandurah, i have been a fan of Hugh's since i first saw his show on foxtel about six months ago. Dear Hugh keep on cooking, i just love the way you make things look so simple to make, and they taste delicous also. I just wish we could get our hands on some of the produce as it's not so easy to find out here. Cheers Trina.

I personally love watching Hugh. He is an inspiration to get out their and grow your own food and appreciate what you have once youve grown it yourself. I wish more shows were like his. Bring on more of Hugh's river cottage series. Hugh has such a down to earth personallity it truley is refreshing to watch the shows and laugh at his humour. Great series.

I collect cook books to read like novels and ponder what is on the menu next. River Cottage plus River Cottage Meat cookbooks came into my possession over a year ago. I loved each of them. The information is honest and straight forward and Hugh's ethical stance on killing and eating your food wiith respect is a refreshing change. Now I subscribe to Foxtel and wonderfully Hugh has been on my TV screen repeatedly since. Fabulous stuff.

I just adore Hugh's programs. They are eye opening to a whole different way of life. We all can learn alot from his programs and even if we only take 2-3 ideas from him and put them in to our lifes that got to help our own well being.
