A six week competition for amateur cooks, in which they're challenged to cook their one best dish. Unlike certain other programmes, only one dish is to be cooked.

The final was decided by a premium-rate telephone vote, which we still say defeats the whole object. It's for eating, not looking at!

Somewhat bizarre in the choice of a cricket presenter as host, but at least it means that we can make excellent jokes about looking at the slow-motion replays on the Snackometer.
