Airdate: Hugh’s Scandimania
Mr. River Cottage himself, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, is northward-bound, to visit Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall delves into Scandinavian culture to explore outstanding landscapes, taste delectable cuisines and admire the innovative architecture and designs. In Denmark, Hugh will learn how to cook in the kitchens of one of the world’s best restaurants, Noma, while in Sweden, whose brands from IKEA to ABBA are famous across the world, Hugh discovers a country where there’s 16 months parental leave and kids go to ‘forest schools’ from the age of three to connect with nature. In Norway, once the poor cousin of Scandinavia, Hugh learns it’s now the richest of the three countries thanks to massive oil reserves. Hugh will explore the stunning mountains and fjords that gave the world skiing and explore the ways in which fishing and adventure have always been central to Norwegian life and culture.
Thursdays from April 10 at 9.30pm on the LifeStyle Channel.
