Profile Ready, Steady, Chuck!'s Chef Al's unparalleled talents are self-evident not only in his championship-winning dishes Frazzled Minty Tomato and Apricot Pepper Salad and Black Forest Eggs With Garlic Apple Crostini, but also in his everyday creations such as Curry Biscuit and Crispy Choco-Noodle Supreme. When he's not in the kitchen creating nu-nouvelle cuisine, Al works as a furniture remover, photographer, archaeologist and semi-professional gin-and-tonic critic.
Favourite Ready, Steady, Chuck! Recipe Grapefruit and Cheese Toastie. I consider this to be particularly repellent with its subtle mixture of inappropriate textures and truly awful aftertaste.
Favourite Ready, Steady, Chuck! Ingredient Ginger cake always provides an interesting challenge for the chef but you can't beat a nice baguette for sheer versatility of shape and form.
Most Memorable Ready, Steady, Chuck! Moment Either the awesome futility of Chef Andrew's attempt to deep fry cabbage in margarine or the hilarity of the baby banana-porridge incident.

Most important thing to have in the kitchen In addition to the basic staples to sustain life - pasta, rice, gin, lemons, tonic etc - it is important to have a ready stock of horseradish, curry sauce and ginger cake.
If you had an industrial quantity of Miracle Whip, what would you do with it? Put it on Freecycle, assuming that would be allowed.
