IT'S COMING! The new series of River Cottage is on it's way, and Hugh's taking a radical new perspective on cooking. He's recognised a simple pattern that underpins so many well-loved dishes that they are little more or less than three good things on a plate. Now, in a brand new series, he's going to pursue that idea, experimenting with different flavours and textures. But he's going to put 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. He's going to be 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. We'll email you the exact date and time when we have it, so you won't miss a thing.
