Take a couple of chefs, add two contestants, throw in some ingredients and garnish liberally with some superchefs. Simmer and enjoy! This month, catch all new episodes of the fun cookery game show Ready Steady Cook hosted by mischievous ‘ringmaster’ Ainsley Harriott. In each episode, two of Britain’s top chefs are each teamed up with a contestant who gives them a bag of surprise ingredients worth between £5 and £10. With the contestants as their helpers, the chefs must each create a meal in 20 minutes in front of a studio audience. At the end of the time, the dishes are judged by the audience who hold up a picture of a red tomato or a green pepper to indicate who their favourite chef is.
It’s fast, funny and often frantic as the clock ticks away. Whatever the ingredients, the culinary team-mates need nimble fingers and a keen sense of humour to survive.
