I first saw him many moons ago, with pots dangling off the back of a Land Rover, whizzing through the countryside singing ‘Baba Riley’ by the Who. ‘…..I put my back into my livin’……. He has always been about real food and livin’. Not quite tame. Most importantly he seems like a genuine person, who is fighting the good food fight and is always pleasant.
It’s a shame to hear there has been a fire at the cottage. It’s like a second home to a large part of the nation, we’ve seen it grow into an institution. A bastion of modern British-ness. I’m a damn sight prouder of ‘the cottage’ than I am that palace.

It was a minor blaze and no one was hurt.
Long live Hugh and the new age of foraging folk.
