Gill Meller - Food & Drink


Gill Meller has been involved with River Cottage from the early days and appears regularly on the celebrated Channel 4 series and still works closely with Hugh. A big advocate for simple, seasonal cookery, Gill makes the most of ingredients and the natural qualities they possess. Gill considers his cooking to be a reflection of his surroundings, taking inspiration from the landscape, his locality, and the amazing farmers, growers, and fishermen that produce the ingredients he uses. Gill teaches at River Cottage and internationally. He is a regular contributor to titles such as the Observer, Guardian, Waitrose Food, Telegraph and Country Living to name but a few, and his regular recipe column can be found in the award winning Delicious magazine every month. Gill's first book, Gather (2016), won the Fortnum & Mason Award for Best Debut Food Book, and Time (2018) was nominated for the Guild of Food Writers Cookbook of the Year. His latest book Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower was released earlier this year.
