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. 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 four Canteens, our award-winning restaurants and delis based in the South West where we combine our philosophy with the finest producers in Axminster, Bristol, Plymouth and - most recently - Winchester.
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.
I love the full flavours and varied textures in this delicious, hearty dish, which comes from Charlie James, former head chef at the River Cottage Canteen in Bristol. The crispy kale is a particular treat.View this Recipe
