River Cottage Series Premiere

Thursday, November 12 on 4

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s back for a brand new series, and with autumn in full swing and winter on its way it’s time to stock the larder and enjoy everything these seasons have in store. Hugh lives in Devon – cider country – and is keen to make perry, as pear cider is known. He heads to Gloucestershire for some expert advice. And after a crash-course in learning how to hold huge breaths underwater, he takes to the open sea to try and bag the ultimate shellfish: scallops. It’s also mushroom season, so foraging guru John Wright and Hugh snuffle about the woods in a bid to find some fantastic fungi.
