The national celebrity chef Lesley Waters, appearing on ITV’s This Morning, is getting ready for a nationally televised cookoff at Sunderland Empre. The traditional Green Peppers v Red Tomatoes cookoff gets underway on on Tuesday, September 24. I can smell the dishes already!
The iconic Green Peppers v Red Tomatoes cook-off and the quickie bag challenge will be hosted by Russell Grant.
Ready Steady Cook Live!, the long-awaited tour of the UK’s most successful TV cookery show, will be at Sunderland Empire for one night only next month.
So get set for the iconic Green Peppers v Red Tomatoes cook-off and the quickie bag challenge on Tuesday, September 24.
Russell Grant, who won the nation’s hearts in the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing, will bring his inimitable style and energy to the show as host.
Russell has also enjoyed huge success in the West End and on tour, starring in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End production of The Wizard of Oz, as Teen Angel in Grease and in Midnight Tango with his “Strictly” dance partner Flavia Cacace.
Executive chef Lesley Waters, who appeared in more than 500 editions of television’s longest-running cookery success, will head up the celebrity chefs, and has announced that the TV chef favourites who will be joining her on stage at venues up and down the country will include Nick Nairn, Tony Tobin, Brian Turner and Kevin Woodford.
Following the legendary TV format, guest chefs will work against the clock to prepare a meal, backed up by the classic competing Red Tomato/Green Pepper kitchens.
As the chefs work furiously, the audience is offered the chance to vote for their favourite. Members of the public join in the fun, too, competing at each tour date, with the winner bringing their very own Quickie Bag on stage.
