The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

TV’s Life­Style Chan­nel has com­mis­sioned an Aus­tralian ver­sion of River Cot­tage. The search for an Aus­tralian host has com­menced. Host of the UK ver­sion Hugh Fearn­ley-Whit­tingstall (pic­tured) will men­tor the tele­vi­sion new­comer. ‘‘It’s bril­liant to be tak­ing River Cot­tage Down Un­der,’’ he says. ‘‘Aus­tralia’s a coun­try I have long wanted to get to know. ‘‘We’ve had some lovely Aussies visit us here at River Cot­tage in Devon and it’s high time I re­paid the com­pli­ment. I know there are great things hap­pen­ing with lo­cal, sea­sonal wild foods and I can’t wait to tap into them. And I’m look­ing for­ward to meet­ing some Aussie Hughs. At least I think I am.’’ To ap­ply, go to www.life­style.com.au.
