Part philosophy book, part gardening book, and a great cook book! Shopping tips, growing tips and prep tips. This is an excellent book about eating sustainably, local and organic. Describes a lifestyle as much as just being about ingredients.

Hugh manages to capture the natural enthusiasm he exudes for the subjects of food and self sustained living in his television show, in this book.
Nice pictures, a must have in any cookery book these days, are in abundance.
The book gives a good introduction to the worlds of animal husbandry and horticulture, which is exactly what he sets out to do, he doesn't get bogged down with detail and yet doesn't skip over things either.
The writing style is easy and informal, much like the tv show itself.
A must have for anyone who liked the show.

I bought this book to raise my own pigs so I could make sausages, bacon etc. in the fall. Loved it! SO much information. If you ever get the chance, watch the river cottage dvd's. Only sold in UK. Hugh is the man.

Good, honest easy cooking with a twist. Frank and funny with regard to making the most of the bounty of the countryside from nettle soup to bunny burgers. Perfect reference for making jams ans preserves to growing your own produce.

Not strictly a novel but who knows how much of the cute filler on farming pigs, etc is fiction. Heavy on river life and light on recipes.
