She regularly holds farm visits for school children and is a passionate advocate of animal welfare. Fizz and Steve have four daughters, all of them enthusiastic cooks.


If only all the men who put on an apron once a year to take charge of a barbecue had Hugh's knowledge and charm. * Spectator on THE RIVER COTTAGE MEAT BOOK * Ripe and magnificent ... a good and beautiful book * The Guardian on THE RIVER COTTAGE YEAR * The best new book of the year without a shadow of a doubt, a serious treatise, a meat cookery bible and a supremely appetising recipe collection. Fearnley-Whittingstall is our most important and eloquent food writer today. * Philippa Davenport, Financial Times , on TH * This is the most honest cookbook I have found, reeking with helpful, hands-on wisdom. It is everything it should be and more ... deliciously funny, well written and neither macho nor sanctimonious. * Jill Dupleix, The Times, on THE RIVER COTTA * Praise for Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: 'A great way to learn the basics without feeling patronised ... You come away from the experience not just with a tasty supper but with a better knowledge of food ... comfortingly old-fashioned ... will almost certainly go on my shelf of "genuinely useful cook-books", cross-referenced with my folder of "ways to entertain the kids at weekends"' * Time Out * 'Recipes so simple that a child could do them, but this is not a cookbook for children; it is a brilliant introduction to making food that's suitable for everyone' * Independent * 'A triumph ... will grab the attention of younger readers, and the range of recipes is broad enough to interest more seasoned cooks, too' * Irish Times (Book of the Year) * 'Three loud, very heartfelt cheers for a book that promises children a better start in the kitchen and at table ... a book to read out loud, with pictures to pore over, ideas to talk about ... education and entertainment at its appetising best, a kitchen primer that sparkles with infectious enthusiasm, sets the imagination alight, engages all the senses in a voyage of culinary discovery, encourages young cooks ... THE RIVER COTTAGE FAMILY COOKBOOK is in places as gripping as a detective story, it is a fount of useful information, and great inspiration for culinary action stations' * Phillippa Davenport, Financial Times *

Another brilliant book from Hugh! This book is written both for children and adults. It explains the basics of cooking techniques and some of the chemistry behind it. The recipes are simple to follow with great results. They also include appropriate safety tips and warnings. It also encourages children to involve themselves in their food sources by starting a small gardenand going fishing just to name a few. Great for school age children.
