But the closest I come to actually being there is reading the book. The River Cottage Cookbook is full of tasty recipes for natural and healthy dishes. All with a delicious twist, obviously! In proper Hugh FW style.
Its inspirational, as well as giving loads of information about self-sufficient living. Even if it is a little pretentious at times, the photography and tasty recipes make it a brilliant recipe book.
there are far too many meat recipes in the book for my liking really, and not nearly enough veg recipes to satisfy my cravings. although it's not a go-to book for everyday, it's interesting to read all the information he has about growing food and raising animals, how to prepare and how to cook; it's a very practical guide for anyone who enjoys dreaming about this type of lifestyle, and for those who are already on the path to self-sufficiency.
