The River Cottage Cookbook

Posted on November 30, 2009


The River Cottage CookbookTremendous stuff.  Really.  This is right up there with one of those weekends when you turn on the TV at 9am only to find it’s wall to wall Whittingstall as far as the eye can see. Don’t expect too many recipes here, they really do take back seat to pages of prep and animal husbandry. The photography too is exquisite and this is a great big pudding of a book. It’s certainly the only cookery book I’ve ever come across that can be read cover to cover.

And don’t think my resemblance to the Hughster (when the hair’s allowed to roam as free as his pigs) hasn’t been noted.
