It doesn’t take much to get club leaders Ali and Stuart swimming in open water, particularly when we mentioned celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall would be cooking up some tasty carb-loading dishes after a 3km river swim at Wareham.

Ali and Stuart were part of a group of open water swimmers featured in an episode of River Cottage Veg. Vegetarian triathlete Colin Hill (of Great Swim fame), Ali, Stuart and the swimmers tackled the snacks with gusto. There’s also footage of Colin and Stuart competing in the 2011 10km Dart Swim.

Tim and James also make a saffron speltotto and the classic melanzane parmigiana in this episode.

Thanks to Hugh and River Cottage for a fantastic day.

You can watch the episode on 4OD and youtube (47m 18s).
