In Hugh’s 3 Good Things, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has a radical new perspective on cooking.

In the 25-part series he recognises a simple pattern that underpins so many well-loved dishes – that they are little more or less than three good things on a plate.

He puts himself and others to the test – by taking part each day in a competition with two other amazing chefs to decide whose combination works best.

One chef will be from Hugh’s own stable of award-winning River Cottage chefs.

The other will be a top-notch guest, who’s bound to give Hugh a run for his money, and he’s tested as never before.

Each week will be devoted to a particular type of food – vegetables, meat, fruit, fish and finally grains and pulses – and each week a guest judge with particular expertise in that area will arrive to test the results and pick a winner.

First broadcast on Channel 4 and More 4, Nov 2012
