River Cot­tage Christ­mas Spe­cial

Satur­day, 6pm, ABC1 Yes, I know, we went large on Christ­mas food pro­grams last week. But man about the cot­tage Hugh Fearn­ley-Whit­tingstall, whose one-off Christ­mas spe­cial airs this week, de­serves not to be missed sim­ply be­cause he brings a thor­oughly dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive to fes­tive sea­son cook­ing. Fearn­ley-Whit­tingstall has made a liv­ing out of grow­ing his own pro­duce and cook­ing it on TV, so he does a great line in mak­ing Christ­mas ac­ces­si­ble for veg­e­tar­i­ans as well as car­ni­vores. He tells us at the be­gin­ning that he is de­ter­mined to in­clude some de­li­cious twists and turns among the fes­tive favourites, and he does. Tune in as Hugh and the River Cot­tage gang cook up a feast fit for a king. Hugh goes crack­ers about nuts, and his mate Tim goes into the wild wood in search of a beast for the feast. Ooh, look — scrump­tious canapes made from the laird’s favourite veg­eta­bles.
