Video: A Day at River Cottage HQ for 113 Head Chef Ranjit Salian

Our Head Chef Ranjit Salian recently had the opportunity to experience a dream for many chefs, a visit to River Cottage. Best known as the setting for a number of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s popular television series, River Cottage HQ is home to an excellent Chef’s School and an award winning Cookery School, and it hosts many unique events, special dining experiences and even weddings.

With an emphasis on seasonality and fresh, local produce and an approach that centres sustainability, River Cottage is well aligned with our own values and approach to food, making it an ideal place for Ranjit, and his fellow chefs from across our parent company CH&Co, to visit.

During a fascinating day, Ranjit had the opportunity to learn some new flavour combinations and to try his hand at bringing these flavours to life in his own dish, cooked in the revered kitchens of River Cottage.
