The first TV series was Escape to River Cottage and was shown on Channel 4. In this show Fearnley-Whittingstall left London to pursue an ambition of self-sufficiency, growing his own vegetables and raising his own animals at a gamekeeper's cottage near Netherbury in Dorset. The series had six episodes and first aired in March and April 1999. It was followed by Return to River Cottage in 2000 and River Cottage Forever in 2002, in which viewers followed Fearnley-Whittingstall's further adventures as a downsized smallholder.
Hoping for a free fish dinner, Hugh joins a gamekeeper named John to help cull the pike population on the River Piddle. Hugh's artificial lure made from a rubber duck is ineffective, but John eventually catches a large pike. To convince John that pike can be a good eating fish, Hugh prepares jellied pike. After River Cottage's first blackcurrant crop yields a mere seven berries, Hugh travels to a berry farm and works in exchange for fruit. Hugh joins a group of Eastern European students harvesting raspberries. He eats all the berries that are deemed overripe for supermarket shelves. Later, Hugh prepares a dessert of coffee-flavoured floating islands with blackcurrant syrup for the commune. Hugh builds a chicken enclosure and buys six egg-laying hens from Frank, a local farmer. Hugh uses his first egg to prepare a single-serving souffle, which he then eats while reclining in his hammock.
Hugh számára az élet River Cottage-on immár nem kaland, hanem egyenesen életforma. Az elmúlt időszakban világossá vált számára, hogy a ház körüli kis kert nem elegendő a zöldségek termesztéséhez és állatainak állathoz méltó neveléséhez, így úgy dönt: földet bérel a szomszédoktól. A rengeteg munka mellett azonban továbbra is jut ideje az ínycsiklandó ételek elkészítésére és a környékbeliekkel való ünneplésre.
