Catch and Cook Fish:
Join us as we head off on the high seas in search of the seasons best fish, from the first mackerel of spring through the black bream and bass of summer and autumn to the early winter squid. Check out the Fish Skills section, where yo'll learn everything you need to know about preparing your freshly caught fish from scratch. And then it's back to River Cottage HQ for tips on home-smoking your catch, and a feast of favourite fishy recipes, from mackerel sashimi to sea bass baked in a salt crust. Then sit back and enjoy our special feature, For the Love of Fish - half an hour of the very best fishy fun and frolics from past River Cottage series. Join me as I recall some of my favourite adventures, catching, cooking and eating some of the quirkier and tastier characters among Britain's fabulous fish and shellfish.
There is something especially pleasurable about the mix of whiling away a sunny day by the sea and filling up a bucket with nature's finest free edible bounty. So, if the idea of digging around in rock pools for your dinner excites the hunter-gatherer in you, as much as it tickles your taste buds, then this video is for you. Follow in the footsteps of one of the country's favourite foraging experts, John Wright, as he winkles out winkles, gets upbeat about sea beet and warms the cockles of your heart with his cockle collecting... and join Hugh too as he gets involved in some of John's wild seaside adventures!
