Blaze destroys celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s kitchen at River Cottage
09 February 2012
A fire has gutted a kitchen at River Cottage HQ, the famous home of TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
The fire broke out around 10.15 pm on Tuesday night in the events barn, which also contains a kitchen for the River Cottage’s cookery school.
Five appliances initially attended the incident, with firefighters requiring a further two to be called for water supply. The barn contained ten ovens for the cookery school, all of which had their own individual gas cylinders, and two large propane tanks in the building were also involved in the fire.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall himself was believed to be out of the country filming for an upcoming television programme.
