Ready, Set, Cook! was a big part of my childhood development. I recall it coming on Food Network every evening at seven p.m. central. The first woman was the better host; Sissy Biggers was just annoying with her fake grins and loud wardrobe. What I liked about the show, was that two opposing teams, the Tomatoes and the Peppers, competed with one another to cook the best impromptu meal. A regular person is given something like twelve dollars to go out and purchase various ingredients and bring them back to his/her chef partner. Together, they're expected to whip up something appetizing in twenty minutes. It was always interesting seeing the kinds of gourmet meals they could think up and actually pull off in that amount of time! Did they get anything out of it? I don't remember there being any kind of reward for the victors. And then, during closing credits, the whole audience would stampede the stage and begin eating!
