Hhmmmmm......must admit I switched over half way through. I never thought I would admit to that but I agree with Baz. I think RC has lost its way to be honest. Didn't understand that bit about the veggie woman at all. What has that to do with RC? And since when did HFW start buying Asda Smartprice Anchovies???? Hypocracy at its best.
Nope, its was a complete mish mash of everything he has previously done. I think it held more ineterest when he had no skills and was learning at the very beginning. People could empathise with his human misgivings. Now its just a masterclass on how to make lodsa dosh from recycling River Cottage over and over and over and over....ect etc.

I'm with you there MB!

It's just a moneyspinner now, to my mind. Nothing original, just the same old format & principles wrapped in a different format.

I thought it was quite good  Embarassed .  Though  I didn't get why the veggie girl was trying to get her head around eating meat.  Either she likes the taste or she doesn't,  seemed a bit strange to me she obviously had no problem ethicly.

Did anyone see this again last night? I must admit it was marginally better than the first one (even though I am still confused as to the veggie woman). Rolling Eyes  Did anyone catch the bit about dandelion and burdock? Now I pretty much know what a dandelion looks like. They are the yellow ones all over my lawn.....but I am not sure what I am looking for in Burdock. I know from the show they have heart shaped leaves, but the hedgerow round hear just looks full of grass and the odd wild garlic, oh and plenty of hogweed. Can anyone shed any light on what I should be looking for? Only so as I don't poison the family.

We used to call them "Sticky bobs" as kids & throw the "Burrs" at each other.  Cool

Big leaves - What was the H doing with them ? - I didn't see it.
