- For Her
"A collection of more than 180 appealing everyday recipes from the bestselling author of the River Cottage series.
British iconoclast and sustainable food champion Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall goes back to basics in the newest addition to his series of award-winning River Cottage books. In River Cottage Every Day, Hugh shares the dishes that nourish his own family of three hungry school-age kids and two busy working parents—from staples like homemade yogurt and nut butters to simple recipes like Mixed Mushroom Tart; Foil-Baked Fish Fillets with Fennel, Ginger, and Chile; and Foolproof Crème Brûlée.
Hugh brings his trademark wit and infectious exuberance for locally grown and raised foods to a wide-ranging selection of appealing, everyday dishes from healthy breakfasts, hearty breads, and quick lunches to all manner of weeknight dinners and enticing desserts. Always refreshingly honest, but without sermonizing, Hugh encourages us to build a close relationship to the sources of our food and become more involved with the way we acquire and prepare it. But he doesn’t shrink from acknowledging the challenges of shopping and cooking while juggling the demands of work and family. So while Hugh offers an easy recipe for homemade mayonnaise, he admits to having a jar of store-bought mayo lurking in the fridge, just like the rest of us!
Including helpful and encouraging advice on how to choose the finest meat, freshest fish, and most mouthwatering fruits and vegetables, River Cottage Every Day shows us that deliciously prepared and thoughtfully sourced meals can be enjoyed every day of the year.

“A crowd-pleaser. . . . The past few years have delivered a
library’s worth of ‘quick-easy-thrifty’ cookbooks. Global economic crisis
will do that, and from Britain, where pulling your socks up in the face of
austerity is a matter of patriotic pride, we have new books in this vein by
Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, and even the late Elizabeth David. A surprising
one is River Cottage Every Day, an accessible collection of recipes from the
farmer-cook Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Compare, for instance,
Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Meat Book, which opens with a photo
essay depicting the slaughter, skinning, and sawing in half of a cow. River
Cottage Every Day, by contrast, begins with a photo of the author scarfing
honey-smeared bread. . . . Fearnley-Whittingstall is, at heart, a philosopher,
and these new recipes make a case for approaching daily cooking with
intention—or, as he puts it, finding ‘things to savor and share that don’t
just fill up, but make us feel good.”
