Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is celebrating the summer season with a four-part River Cottage series. Following up on his Landshare campaign Hugh will cover some of the groundbreaking stories to develop as amateur veg growers search for new land. To further celebrate the warmer weather Hugh has filled his gardens with strawberry patches that he hopes to grow just in time for his massive strawberry fete for five hundred people.
Back in the River Cottage kitchen, Hugh will be whipping up seasonal delights and seeking out the finest edible goodies from the garden, the hedgerow, the river and the stream. From pea shooters, parsley pesto and potted mackeral, to goats cheesecake with gooseberries and roast potato gnocchi, Hugh’s garden delicacies are all washed down with lashings of Gorse Flower Wine and Carrot and Spruce Beer.
