River Cottage Australia

Thursday, 4 July 2013

Are you a fan of River Cottage? I have been for many years, I love Hugh's passion and commitment to living as sustainably as he can. So when I heard there was to be an Australian version, I was very excited. Seeing the River Cottage principles with an Australian twist will no doubt inspire me to take on some of the ideas for around my own home. Especially the veggie garden, or veg garden as Hugh would call it.

The first episode aired last week and featured a sourdough starter, something I have had on my list of 'one day I'll get around to it'. It seemed remarkably easy so I have added the ingredients Paul used (whole wheat, spelt and rye flours) to this week's shopping list and hope to get it started in the next few days.


I did not receive anything for this post! I just love the show! Cheers.


  1. Oh I didn't see it - I will have to watch out for it. I tried sourdough once and the hubby threw it out because it smelled! I really really want to try it again.

    1. I hope mine doesn't smell too bad otherwise I'm sure Mr Homespun will do the same!

  2. One of my fave bloggers, Rebecca, has made a starter. Have a peek at her blog here. http://hambyhomeinstead.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/sourdough-success.html
