A Cook on the Wild Side
1 Series, 4 Episodes
Philip Glenister, Keeley Hawes and Felicity Kendal join Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for a two-day cookery master class at River Cottage farm, including fishing, foraging and tasty food
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is joined at River Cottage by three comedians, Robert Webb, Lee Mack and Ruby Wax. Can two days of classes whip them into shape as serious chefs?
Hugh welcomes comedy actors Kathy Burke, Stephen Mangan and Mark Heap to River Cottage. What could possibly go wrong? Kathy hates Christmas; so it'll be down to Stephen and Mark to help Hugh to talk her round. Hugh takes Kathy out on a fishing trip to catch an alternative Christmas day main course - perfect for non-meat eaters like her, or anyone fancying a change from the boring bird. Resident forager John Wright heads to the woods in search of wild mushrooms and oak moss for a surprising seasonal starter; and Hugh's ever-dependable chefs, Tim and Gill, show how to make Christmas cocktails, festive breads and tasty trays of veg. All that and cake, a chocolate truffle challenge and milking the goats.
