Episode four of The Hedgecombers starts off with Jane Sarchet on the beach, where she absorbs the relaxing ambience of Cornwall. Jane's been camping in Myrtle, and is making sweet potato toast with goats cheese and oyster mushrooms. This is one of Jane's favourite breakfasts, and we can see why!
After breakfast, Jane pops by Copperfish Distillery in Looe, to pick up some Moonshine (and of course, try it!). Stopping for a quick snack, Jane delves in to the history of Myrtle, who has been a complete labour of love! Picking up, she heads to the home of Cornish Blue, where we see the cheesemaking process- right from the beginning. Jane visits the farm, and sustainable dairy practices are explained in depth by Phillip. Jane tries some cheese at room temperature, as any good soft cheese should be ate this way, and decides to pick some more up for the cheesy pasta dish she later makes!
