Paul West is welcoming eager cooks and wannabe-farmers to teach them the River Cottage lifestyle in an all new season. But it's not just visitors to the farm that Paul's welcomed, he also became a first-time Dad to son, Otto, so to help run the farm and the Cooking School he's taken on an apprentice, a local guy named, Harrison.
Paul's looking at ways to future proof the farm and the theme of food security. With that in mind, he's taking the River Cottage Australia message on the road to discover new regions, meet and learn from farmers and producers who share his passion in improving food security by boosting long-term agricultural productivity.
Paul uses the knowledge he's gained as a chef, and with the help of mates, to tow his mobile Food Van across the Snowy Mountains, into Canberra and down to the Riverina Region of NSW. Along the way, he visits farms, producers, markets and cooks for his new friends with the produce his caught and gathered along the way, all the time learning new skills to bring back to his own farm in Central Tilba.
