Fairly enjoyable late afternoon fun, 23 February 2005
Author: Chris Gaskin from Derby, England

I sometimes watch Ready, Steady, Cook at my mate's, if the TV is on and happens to be on BBC2, who I visit twice a week.

Two contestants come on the show with around £5-£10 worth of food and with the help of two celebrity chefs, they have to make up a meal in just 20 minutes. This is usually achieved and the winner wins a food hamper I think.

The show is currently presented by Ainsley Harriott, who also helps out a little. After each show, I think the food is not wasted and is eaten by the contestants and chefs.

Ready, Steady, Cook does have some bad points though. The contestants tend to show off at times, along with Ainsley. Another annoying thing is the audience shouting out the last 10 seconds of the countdown, which we can see for ourselves on the screen.

Overall, quite enjoyable despite these bad points.
