Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is widely known in the United Kingdom as a chef, journalist and founder of River Cottage—his small farm that has grown into a cooking school, restaurant and home to a variety of projects focused on self-reliance, food integrity and the consumption of local, seasonal produce. An outspoken advocate for sustainable seafood issues, Hugh launched a revolutionary campaign called Hugh's Fish Fight, which brought public and government attention to Europe's wasteful fishing policies.
In this one-hour program, join Hugh for a conversation with award-winning Los Angeles Times Food Editor Russ Parsons about sustainability, seafood and the passion that drives chefs to become advocates for change. Hors d'oeuvres and premium wines from The Hess Collection will accompany this lively conversation, and you'll take home one of Hugh's acclaimed cookbooks. You'll get priority access to the Gala at the conclusion of this memorable event.
