A Bit about Fraser Christian:
Fraser Christian grew up in the South Cotswold and as a young boy enjoyed the surrounding countryside and the wilder parts of the UK. As a Boy Scout he even reached the summit of Ben Nevis in Scotland, the highest peak in the UK and also climbed England’s Scafell Pike in the Lake District.
Fraser’s other interests and achievements include conservation, self-sufficiency, backwoods cookery and personal survival techniques. The latter includes fishing, shooting and trapping.
Upon Leaving School, Fraser embarked on a college course in catering and worked towards becoming a chef.
He left college with the highest exam result of any student and ranked in the top ten in the country and received a honours distinction in catering.
Whilst at college studying nutrients he discovered the secret healing properties of herbs and that Herbs are not only very good for the digestive system, but also the well being of the whole body. Since then he has continued exploring herbal benefits and the vast range of wild foods and medicines.
Environmental issues lay close to his heart. With his wealth of knowledge Fraser would love to share his views about the environment and the oceans, especially where fishing is concerned.
Fraser also hosted and contributed to the fish events at River Cottage HQ owned by the famous TV personality and chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on the Devon and Dorset border.
As a humanitarian Fraser believes that self-sufficiency is the key to a balanced mind and allows release from responsibilities of society and others that provide basic human requirements that is key to self-preservation and existence.
Fishing is now the medium he works most closely with and is aiming to educate people on how they can protect the world’s marine environment and its rich and diverse sources of food and teach them to be able to collect it, catch it, prepare it, cook it and enjoy it!
