In each episode, Stone introduces himself to a stranger in a grocery store, typically a woman in her 20s or 30s, and asks if she is cooking a meal for someone that night. When the person responds affirmatively, Stone offers his services to help cook dinner. They drive to the participant's house, cook the meal, and then surprise the participant's partner or guest upon his or her arrival.
Recipes that are used in each episode are posted on the show's official website.
Voice actress Tara Strong appeared on the show in October 2006 with her husband and their two sons. Comedian Randy Sklar was surprised with Beef Wellington by his wife and Stone on an episode that aired May 15, 2007.
Canadian-Australian actress Kimberley Joseph appeared in the episode "Kimberly" (sic) that first aired June 15, 2007.
