Ready, Steady, Chuck! Challenge Appearances 2012, 2014.
Profile Chef Marcus entered the Ready, Steady, Chuck! competitive arena as a surprise entrant in the 2012 Challenge. "No-one was more surprised than me", he confessed. "And as a result I think I was able to bring that extra element of surprise to the dinner plate." No longer an innocent bystander, Chef Marcus's creation Fizzy Fishy Bangor Bang lived up to all expectations, and has firmly established his credentials as the team's expert in unexpected fish dishes. With an established track record in pacifism, religious education, and violent video games, Chef Marcus is really enjoying his new career as a celebrity chef.
Favourite Ready, Steady, Chuck! Recipe Without any doubt it is my homage to the archaeology of ancient Egypt that stands out. My Barque was a beautiful simulation of the last journey of the Pharaoh along the Nile. And anyone who says they will be likely to travel to the afterlife too if they eat a mixture of gravy granules and branston pickle is completely missing the point.
Favourite Ready, Steady, Chuck! Ingredient Surprisingly, it isn't instant gravy granules. I'd have to say Heinz tomato ketchup, even though I've not been lucky enough to get it yet. And I am not content to settle with any supermarket own brands instead. I do have standards.
Most Memorable Ready, Steady, Chuck! Moment I suspect the best Ready, Steady, Chuck! moments are those that nobody remembers - as allegedly happened concerning Deep-Fried Cabbage in Margarine, or at least so I am told. Maybe one day the evidence will appear. You never know.

Most important thing to have in the kitchen A selection of menus from local takeways, just in case.
If you had an industrial quantity of Miracle Whip, what would you do with it? It's a horrible thought. But it may be possible to disguise the taste of it if you have enough Branston pickle and gravy granules. It's worth a try.
