Cook the Book: The River Cottage Cookbook

The River Cottage Cookbook

This week's Cook the Book is another from the great River Cottage book series. The author, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, is a celebrity chef in Britain, known for such series as TV Dinners and, after he moved full-time to his country home, River Cottage, for several shows based around the sustainable-farming lifestyle he cultivates there. The River Cottage Cookbook brings elements of his previous books under one roof, and provides detailed guidance on everything from gardening to choosing and keeping livestock. In fact, it's organized into four parts—gardening, livestock, fish, and hedgerow—based on the provenance of the featured ingredients.

In a bit, we'll bring you the first of this week's daily featured recipes. But first, as is always the case with Cook the Book, we've got a number of River Cottage Cookbooks to give away to Serious Eatsers.
