Hugh’s 3 Good Things (25 x 30′) – A brand new cookery series that sees Hugh Fearnley Whittingstal serve up a cracking plate of food, using just key three seasonal ingredients.
Hugh’s tried and tested philosophy is that good things come in threes. All you need, he believes, is a trio of great ingredients to knock out the perfect plate of food, whether it’s sausages, mash and greens, or apricots, almonds and cream.
In each episode, Hugh will be joined by an exciting guest chef straight from one of the country’s top restaurants – along with one of his trusty River Cottage team, Tim or Gill. The team will cook with three good things each day, including one fixed ingredient chosen by Hugh. What they each pair the fixed ingredient with is entirely up to them, as long as it’s in season. At the end of the episode, Hugh and his two guest chefs will have to put their efforts before an expert judge to see whose plate is voted the day’s best dish.
Stripped Monday to Friday, every week will feature a different theme – from fish, meat and fruit, to vegetables and pulses and grains – so 25 episodes means 75 mouth-watering recipes guaranteed to whet your appetite.
As ever, Hugh and his guest chefs will be raiding the best of River Cottage’s kitchen garden, poly tunnels, fruit trees and larders to provide the finest, seasonal local ingredients, proving along the way that that seasonal is best and simple ingredients make the tastiest of meals.
