River Cottage

Is it really that surprising that one of today's leading advocates of Paul Shepard's "hamlet-economy" goes by the overtly aristocratic name of Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall? Whatever his background, this Brit is doing a great job of spotlighting the simple, local aspects of the traditional British agrarian economy that deserve to be at the front of any movement towards economic localization, slow food and simple living. Take a look at this web site,, or pick up a copy of his excellent seasonal and wild food cookbook, "The River Cottage Year".
