Veg: River Cottage Everyday based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I don't normally watch cookery shows and I don't normally buy cook books, but I watched one episode of River Cottage Vegetables Every Day and was so inspired that I had to buy the book too. The recipes are probably available on the Channel 4 website, but the book was still well worth buying as it is a gorgeous book beautiful photography that is sure to make you feel hungry.The aim of the book is not to convert everyone to vegetarianism (and Hugh himself is a committed carnivore) but to encourage people to eat more vegetables and to have a few meat and fish free days a week, as it is both healthier and better for the environment. The book is divided into sections such as Comfort Food and Feasts, Hearty Salads, Soups, Side Dish, Bready Things and Tapas. The Bready Things chapter contains things that are incredibly simple to make, but provides vital inspiration for sandwiches and snacks without having to resort to boring veggie standards of cheese and pickle or egg and cress. The recipes are always easy to follow and he isn't too precious about things, often saying things are optional or giving other alternatives.
