About River Cottage
River Cottage has given millions of TV viewers a taste for great cooking since 1998, when Hugh first brought his famous food ethos to Channel 4. Our hard-hitting campaigns have changed the eating habits of a nation and improved the welfare and sustainability of animals and fish.
These days River Cottage splits neatly into three.
Our River Cottage HQ, found on the Devon and Dorset border, is home to everything we do and is the base for our Cookery and Chefs' School, unique dining experiences and memorable events.
There are three Canteens, our award-winning restaurants and deli's based in the South West where we combine our philosophy with the finest producers in Axminster, Plymouth and - most recently - Bristol.
Then there is the online community, crammed with amazing people who have created the most knowledgeable centre for cooks, gardeners, smallholders and campaigners on the web, and we're proud of that. It's yours, not ours, and it's open to everyone to share their ideas, recipes and stories.
It's our greatest delight to share our passion for food integrity and consumption of local, seasonal produce with tens of thousands of people every year.
