Step Up to the Plate is a United Kingdom-based television program, produced by Endemol, for the BBC. It was hosted by Anton du Beke and Loyd Grossman[1]


Three amateur cooks are pitched against two professional chefs, to cook a three course meal designed by the amateur cooks. Loyd Grosman stepped up to the plate to judge the courses. The amateur cooks stood to win a prize fund of at least £5000. Whenever the chefs won the fund would increase by £1000.


The program was broadcast on BBC1 and BBC in two runs during the summer of 2008.
