Teen Cooks

Logo for Teen Cooks

Documentary in which top chef Ricky Andalcio, on hearing that more than three quarters of British teenagers can't cook, makes it his mission to teach two clueless teens how to prepare basic family meals and challenges them to make a three-course meal for 20 at the end of a two-week crash course. Ricky makes them cook everything from scratch, no frozen food, no take outs, no microwave meals, and their families must only eat what is provided and must eat together. He forces the families to come together in a way they haven't done previously and, in the process, share meals and talk together for the first time in years.
