Peter Hudson and David Halls in a January 1985 television programme.

Peter Hudson (1931–1992) and David Halls (1935–1993) were chefs whose cookery show, Hudson and Halls, ran on New Zealand television from 1976 to 1986 and also gained a cult following when the pair moved to produce their show in the United Kingdom in 1986. The duo were noted for bringing a camp humour, together with an element of slapstick, to the usually staid television cookery genre.

Their long-term professional and personal relationship ended when Hudson died of cancer in 1992; Halls, grief-stricken, killed himself the following year.[1]

They were the subject of a 2001 documentary, Hudson & Halls – A Love Story,[2] as well as a play, Hudson and Halls Live![3]
