Eat Well for Less?

Gregg Wallace and Chris Bavin go head to head to uncover whether you can get value for money without compromising on quality, creating two different versions of fish and chips.

We spend £1.2 billion a week on food - over £50 per household. Prices are rising, and we've got less money in our pockets. So in these cash-strapped times, can you get great value for money without compromising on quality?

Gregg Wallace (MasterChef) and award-winning greengrocer Chris Bavin are going head to head to uncover whether you should spend or whether you can save your pennies when it comes to buying food.

They're out to create two very different versions of the classic British dish - fish and chips. Gregg is seeking out high-end ingredients to prove you get what you pay for, and Chris is looking for a low-cost alternative that he hopes will taste just as good.

To test their theories, the boys brave stormy Norwegian seas to catch cod, take to the kitchen to create their own ketchup and even slip into lycra.

But in the end it's the great British public who decide in the final taste test. Whose version of fish and chips will win out - Gregg's high-end or Chris's great value? Is it worth splashing your cash when it comes to fish and chips?

The boys also hit Britain's streets to test other family favourite foods on the general public, with some surprising results... meaning we'll soon find out whether you really can Eat Well for Less.
