In River Cottage every Day, Hugh takes his passion for cooking into other peoples houses, as he helps everyone from mums and dad to kids bring real, simple and tasty food to the table – because it’s his belief that good food should be at the heart of every kitchen and the kitchen should be at the heart of every home.
With fruit sales falling in the UK and the nation eating less fruit than almost every other country in Europe, Hugh sets out to test the state of our relationship with fruit.
To do this he heads off to a typical suburban street and sees if he can get the locals excited again by nature’s original sweet treats
Through his infectious enthusiasm and a clutch of clever recipes, he’s soon turned sceptic kids into confirmed consumers of raw fruit and before long they’re discovering the joys of Pick Your Own Farms.
Hugh also shows you how to turn fruit into a fantastic ingredient for delicious desserts, from all-fruit lollies that prove a hit with the local school kids to Eton Mess and a cross between a crumble and a fool - or as Hugh calls it ‘a fumble”.
But fruit’s not just for afters; Hugh makes an orange and lemon St.Clements squash, Gill a mighty venison and pear burger and there’s a fruit themed street party to end the show
But the biggest challenge comes when Hugh meets a man who hated his wife’s apple crumble so much he cut down her apple tree! Can Hugh get him to turn loathing to loving when it comes to cooked apples!
