Cooking Beyond Boundaries

Post categories:

Crippled Monkey | 00:00 UK time, Thursday, 12 January 2006

What are you doing at 4.30pm this afternoon? Not sure? How about tuning into BBC2 to watch not one but two of the stars from the jungling cripsploitation show Beyond Boundaries test their culinary tallents to the max in Ready Steady Cook.

Wheelchair user Ade Adepitan and visually impaired Amar Latif take on the chefs and, in Amar's case at least, produce 5 puddings in 20 minutes. The word is, white chocolate cheescake features!

Amar certainly enjoyed the experience: "I was a bit concerned about the cooking aspect of the show. My philosophy generally is, don't spend any longer cooking than it takes you to eat.

"When I was shown my kitchen, there was a chopping board there with 3 different sizes of knife on it. I knew then that they weren't worried about my blindness.

"They got me to crush biscuits, whisk cream and chop a pineapple. Ainsley asked me if I had ever chopped a pineapple before, and when I said no, he asked how it felt to do so. I didn't know what to say, so just replied that it was like chopping a pineapple. Everybody laughed."

Ready Steady Cook - the one to watch tonight, on Two! The two to watch in fact . . .

Ainsley walked straight into Amar's retort about the pineapple - classic TV!
