River Cottage: Three Go Mad

I will once again be opening the doors of River Cottage, this time to welcome some familiar faces who are famous for everything but their cooking skills.


The special episode from Park Farm will be broadcast on Channel 4 on Wednesday 4 July at 8pm.

The actors Philip Glenister and Keeley Hawes – stars of the 80s-inspired cop show, ‘Ashes To Ashes’ and Felicity Kendal, the original poster girl for small holders throughout the land, join me at River Cottage HQ for two days of good cooking and fun on the farm.

She made John Wright's dreams come true when she joined him for one of his famous foraging trips.

I'll introduce my famous guests to the ways of River Cottage; the importance of seasonal, ethical produce and the delights of homegrown, home-cooked food.

Felicity, Keeley and Philip may all be better at treading the boards than using chopping boards, but after intensive training from our equally enthusiastic chefs, Tim Maddams and Gill Meller, they soon become stars of the kitchen too!

And there’s plenty of fun and tasty food to be enjoyed along the way, from fishing trips to catch creatures of the deep to forages for earthy secrets; from delicious chocolate cakes to soups with an extra zing.

River Cottage: Three Go Mad is on Channel 4 on Wednesday 4 July at 8pm.

• Follow in the footsteps of Philip Glenister, Keeley Hawes and Felicity Kendal with our brand-new course to accompany the TV programme.

John deserves a treat, what a fantastic bloke, my wife's new hero! Our mushroom foraging day back in October was amazing, Steve and John great guides and hosts, and the whole team very impressive. Looking forward to the show!
