An evening of cosy winter roasts River Cottage style. Talk, demo and tastings.

Let the oven do the work with these simple ingredient-focussed recipes from the River Cottage kitchen.

Gelf Alderson has been Executive Head Chef of River Cottage for over ten years and, during his time there, has worked with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall to create the delicious menus served in all six River Cottage restaurants.

In River Cottage Great Roasts, all you will need are good ingredients, an oven and some simple bakeware to create easy weeknight dinners, show-stopping Sunday roasts, fuss-free breakfasts, tea-time treats and indulgent puds. Often only requiring one roasting tin and minimal prep, these are recipes that let the oven do the hard work, and leave you with very little washing up: Spiced whole cauliflower with preserved lemon and yoghurt Roast mushrooms with beer and dumplings Pot roast brisket with orange and star anise Ripped potato oven chips with smoked chilli and roast garlic dip Creamy fish pie Roasted cherry and almond crumble Pears with ginger and toffee Divided into chapters like Breakfast & Brunch, One-tray Wonders, Sunday Roast, Super Sides and Puddings, the recipes all harness the power of the oven to transform everyday ingredients into their more deliciously caramelised, roasted counterparts.
