Too Many Cooks was a British cookery competition on ITV in 2004 and 2005 which turned the idea of cookery shows on its head – the people cook for the chefs.

The show was presented by Jeni Barnett (originally by Kate Garraway), and the judges were chefs Gino D'Acampo, Alex MacKay and Richard Phillips.

The show started with four teams of two people (friends, partners, relations) and each team had to cook a starter in ten minutes, a main course in twenty minutes and a pudding in ten minutes. They were given the title of the dish and some key ingredients as well as a larder of essential basics, but they'll have to rely on their own cooking know-how to come up with a recipe. A couple got eliminated after each course leaving two teams to battle it out at the pudding stage.
