Can an idea grow anywhere? Celebrated chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and new disciple Paul West are about to find out.
Celebrated chef and self sufficiency guru Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall hands the River Cottage baton to an Australian counterpart – former Tasmanian chef, Paul West – who faces new challenges and uniquely Australian characters as he attempts to set up his own farm near the historic and picturesque village of Central Tilba on the NSW Far South Coast.
As the series unfolds, it’s up to Paul to make a go of it without Hugh there to guide him. He learns how to dish up whatever he’s grown, reared or caught. He stocks the farm with chickens, pigs and cows, establishes vegetable gardens, hunts for wild food, and learns the secrets of bush tucker.
Can he build on the practices and passions developed at River Cottage in the UK?
What new challenges will the Australian environment bring?
And what will Hugh discover when he returns at the end of the series to check on his protégé’s progress?
This collection brings together all episodes from Series One, Two, Three and Four plus a BONUS DISC with recipes and tips from Series Two.
