The Afternoon Show Christmas Cook Off! - Arun Kapil

Thursday, 17 December 2009

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.

Each host's efforts will be transmitted from Monday - Thursday this week and on Friday we'll welcome our four hosts into studio and reveal the overall winner!
