This week, I’m joined by a bit of a national treasure. He’s a chef, an author, a presenter – most notably of one of my childhood favourites – Ready Steady Cook. It’s Ainsley Harriott.
Ainsley first trained as a chef in London, but it might surprise you that before becoming a TV star, he was part of pop duo The Calypso Twins, releasing a hit record in the nineties. He soon started presenting Can’t Cook, Won’t Cook and Ready Steady Cook, and spin-off shows around the world. His numerous cookbooks have sold over 2 million copies globally, and he continues to light up our TV screens today – this time with his new ITV series, Ainsley’s Caribbean Kitchen.
