Welcome!












Welcome to the River Cottage Online courses


These courses have been designed specifically for online learners and for people unable to come to our Cookery School at River Cottage HQ.

Each course contains around eight hours of high quality video and step-by-step tutorials from Hugh and the rest of the River Cottage team. These will help guide you through your chosen subject. Each topic is broken down into easy steps, which can be printed out so that you can digest them at your leisure. Along the way are little quizzes to help you test your knowledge!

 

There are also great resources, like recipes from the River Cottage team and lists of suppliers and helpful organisations.


Please note that these courses contain a large amount of video, so you need to have a broadband connection and the latest version of the free Flash player in order to enjoy them. You can download the flash player from here.
