About this series
Over the next six months, chef Tim Maddams of River Cottage fame will be scampering about Scotland where he lives, hunting, shooting, fishing and foraging wild things to take back to his kitchen, smoke and cook. If you are interested in wild food cooking, foraging, smoking meat, and sustainable food, you're in the right place. All produce featured in this series has been gathered locally and is truly wild and sustainable.

The emphasis is on wild meat hunting and cooking, and all the meat will be hot or cold smoked prior to cooking. As the series progresses, we will be wild fishing and foraging and showing you just what can be done with wild game meat... if you know how!

Watch the full version of episode 1 here, which includes a cold-smoked, roast rabbit loin recipe, plus detailed information on the smoking and brining process
