IT'S ALL ABOUT veg at River Cottage in this month. We're half-way through the new TV series, River Cottage Veg, which features recipes from the new book. British cooks can get a bit jingoistic (or perhaps that should be jingleistic) in winter, as if the festivities at the end of the year were all that mattered. You might think that the winter torpor would be a Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalllimiting factor for the seasonal cook. Whatever things are doing, they are not reaching maturity or getting 'ripe'. A lot of the best produce is surely 'over' – banished from the menu until the following June at the earliest. But if we flip the viewpoint we can see what an amazing asset this annual stasis turns out to be. Things do not bloom or fruit. But neither do they bolt or go to seed. What is going to rot has rotted. But what is designed to last may keep now for months. In cold weather, potatoes and carrots can be stored in cool, dry earth for months. Other roots, such as parsnips, celeriac and salsify, remain stable and sturdy if left in the ground. Onions, shallots and garlic all keep their freshness and potency when in store. Frost resistant greens, such as cabbages, kale and Brussels sprouts, will neither grow nor fade.

Christmas Bread & Baking

Introducing our festive twist on the hugely-popular Bread course at the River Cottage Cookery School. Hands-on, the day is designed to instill the knowledge and confidence to become the master of your own Christmas bakery. The course will cover breads such as foccacia, ciabatta and flatbreads plus pizza, which you will bake in our wood-fired oven. Festive goodies include tea-and-tipple bread, chestnut meringues, a winter fruits trifle, hazelnut shortbread and Boxing Day date and walnut bread. We'll send you home with a copy of the River Cottage Bread Handbook.

River Cottage Canteen and Deli

We're opening our Plymouth Canteen & Deli next week!

We're very excited about the opening of our brand new Canteen & Deli at Royal William Yard in Plymouth next Tuesday (15 November). We've also launched our new booking system on our website, so you can be among the first to book your table at the former victualling depot of the Royal Navy, built between 1826 and 1835. It will be the latest River Cottage outpost, serving modern-day Plymouth with locally and ethically sourced supplies.
