Every Day Veg: Tonight at 8pm

, , , , ,

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.

Every Day Veg

Hugh doesn’t have to look far for this week's theme – it is growing all around him in the Park Farm kitchen garden!

And over the next hour he is out to prove that instead of being meal time's after thoughts, relegated to the side of the plate, veg should be the centre of attention.

His attempt to move veg to the middle of our plates, sees him serving them up every way from raw to roasted.

But can he win over the shoppers of Bridport to the delights of crudités and, more challengingly, Poole Fire Station’s Green Watch to eating their greens?

Hugh challenges the meat-loving firemen to go vegetarian for four days – but despite being won over by his lentil and egg curry, Hugh’s not confident they’re going to go all the way.

Hugh also confronts the garden team about their personal vegetable blind spots. Can he get Victoria to enjoy broad beans and make Mark like celery enough to agree to plant it next year!

Meanwhile Gill turns the humble spud into a main course star and Pam Corbin turns the garden glut into gorgeous piccalilli.

The show ends with a big dinner at Park Farm for our fire fighter friends. But will Hugh’s vegetable-heavy meal be a hit?
