Ready, Steady, Chuck! Challenge Appearances None
Profile Swedish former B-movie starlet Chef Olga gave up her chance of a role in one of Latvia's leading soap operas, and a possibly lucrative lap-dancing career, to be a judge at the Ready, Steady, Chuck! Challenge. "Film work is alright", she says, "but there is nothing quite so exciting as experiencing new things to do with food". Multi-talented Olga, who maintains that a salami is just a sausage, spends her spare time learning to play the Swedish klyteharpa and knitting models of human internal organs. She is currently working on her first illustrated children's book, The Uterus that Played the Piano. And if you ask, we will always deny that Olga is really Chef Kath in disguise.
Favourite Ready, Steady, Chuck! Recipe Marmalized Pork. I am very fond of pork as you know. Pork, when cooked properly is so delectable and when dribbled with the marmalade it takes on an air of importance, especially when wrapped in a croissant. Pork and croissant are such natural partners. The addition of another cereal adds to the marvellous crunch factor, and I do like it crunchy. I take every opportunity I can to enjoy a good piece of pork.
Favourite Ready, Steady, Chuck! Ingredient Pork. Did I not already say that, darling?
Most Memorable Ready, Steady, Chuck! Moment That is so hard! There have really been very many of them! I have fun every time I am with any of the chefs. They have so much energy for it. But one of the moments that always puts a smile on my face was with the Cheesy Sponge Pudding, because it just got everywhere! I had so much fun with Chef Phil on that day, boys will be boys you know.
Favourite Celebrity Chef I definitely have a soft spot for the Hairy Bikers. They're both so active and manly, and I like that a lot. The way they handle their machines and their cookery is just so impressive. And I love that little Jamie as well. He has such a cute accent. I'm sure he would love my films. It's a real shame he's married! Est. Winning Odds


Most important thing to have in the kitchen A massive variety of utensils. I like my tools to be just right - not too small or too big, too short or too long. It's a wonderful feeling when the chef has the perfect tool in his hands, and when he's showing you all the things he can do with it on the kitchen table.
If you had an industrial quantity of Miracle Whip, what would you do with it? Actually, I think we probably do have one of those on the film set. We need a lot of Miracle Whip for this film, you see. There's one scene with four girls, you see, though of course they can't stay in too long because of health & safety. And some of the other scenes use a lot, too, for all sorts of other reasons.
