The Afternoon Show Christmas Cook Off! - Richie Wilson

Monday, 14 December 2009

Four Afternoon Show chefs, four dinners and a brutally honest scoring system!!

Richie Wilson, Louise Lennox, Kevin Dundon and Arun Kapil will each host a dinner party in their homes for their 3 other guests (competitors). Each chef has a budget of €150 to come up with a menu to wow, Christmas tipples to impress and other little touches in an endeavour to blow the other chefs' nights out of the water! At the end of each dinner party, the three diners are asked to score their host out of a possible 10 - not just for the food but for their hosting skills.
