Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall wants to introduce a brilliant way of cooking that gives people maximum taste and creativity, with minimum fuss. It all boils down to a blissfully simple formula: when it comes to great cooking, three is the magic number. Mozzarella, tomato and avocado; rhubarb, crumble and custard - the reason they're brilliant is that they are nothing more than three good things. And to prove it, each episode Hugh goes up against two exciting chefs - each creating a perfect plate of food using three main ingredients. But this is more than just a celebration of cooking - the chefs want to win. There can only be one winning recipe, chosen by an expert judge.

During 2006, Fearnley-Whittingstall moved River Cottage HQ from the original barn near Bridport, to its new premises, Park Farm, a 66-acre (270,000 m2) farm near Uplyme on the West Dorset/East Devon border. A new series called The River Cottage Treatment was filmed there and was broadcast on Channel 4 in November 2006. This premise of this series involved guests described as “urban-dwellers, fast food lovers and convenient food-mongers” to spend a week with the host on the new property, the guests being required to undertake farm duties and to eat according to the River Cottage philosophy.
