Series 18 Episode 3
First Broadcast: 8PM Sun 16 December 2012

Hugh welcomes comedy actors Kathy Burke, Stephen Mangan and Mark Heap to River Cottage. What could possibly go wrong?

Kathy hates Christmas; so it'll be down to Stephen and Mark to help Hugh to talk her round.

Hugh takes Kathy out on a fishing trip to catch an alternative Christmas day main course - perfect for non-meat eaters like her, or anyone fancying a change from the boring bird.

Resident forager John Wright heads to the woods in search of wild mushrooms and oak moss for a surprising seasonal starter; and Hugh's ever-dependable chefs, Tim and Gill, show how to make Christmas cocktails, festive breads and tasty trays of veg.

All that and cake, a chocolate truffle challenge and milking the goats.
