As Hugh says: "I have honed the River Cottage approach to food over a decade now, and I believe passionately that it is relevant to everybody, every day. You only have to decide that food, and its provenance, matters to you and your family, and the River Cottage way of doing things can offer a whole raft of solutions: food sourcing and shopping strategies, thrifty kitchen tricks and, above all, approachable, delicious, easy recipes. This book makes no prior assumptions about where you shop, what you may or may not know about growing vegetables or keeping livestock, or whether you can tell the difference between a cep and a chanterelle. But once you own the book, these things may well begin to matter to you. All you will need to reap the benefit is a commitment to spend at least some time in the kitchen, with fresh ingredients, a few times a week. And if you don't have that at the outset, I believe that a little time spent with this book - perhaps in bed, before you go to sleep - will soon put that right! Above all, I intend to tempt and charm you towards a better life with food - with a set of simply irresistible recipes that just happen to be seasonal and ethical."
