GET STUFFED is a late night, cookery series with a difference – as the title suggests, it’s got “in-yer-face energy, lashed with a bad attitude. Each episode features young people who take us into their own real kitchens and demonstrate their favorite recipes. Often the results would delight a gourmet … but sometimes things just don’t work out.
The true horror of GET STUFFED is that it shows the real-life chaos of youthful home cookery at its best and worst. Our recipes are shown in wild little films which are smothered in original rock n roll music and grungy graphics.
The joy of GET STUFFED is that, just when you think things have reached rock bottom, there are the frequent appearances of the “Mystery Chefs” – two idiots in chefs’ uniforms and chequered party masks who shout their own culinary tips from the sideline to kids who can scarcely open a tin.
EXCITING & EDUCATIONAL
GET STUFFED has a breakneck pace to reflect the show’s rough and ready attitude. Ours is the world of popular nosh – cheap, tasty and fun to eat while swinging down the street. With GET STUFFED, grub goes groovy. What’s more – you’ll learn cooking!
PRESENTERS & PEOPLE
All the people in GET STUFFED are members of the general public who have never previously appeared on television. Often, a regular, leather-jacketed presenter appears and tries to lend a hand in the kitchen. Sometimes, GET STUFFED becomes bilingual as we reflect the true diversity of contemporary multicultural society. We’ve bilingually cooked in: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian & Japanese.
ITV started transmitting GET STUFFED in its UK late night schedule in 1991. 284 episodes of approximately 5 minutes and 30 seconds duration were made, transmitted, and heavily repeated. There were also 3 x 30 minute specials. The 3-year TX rights in 104 episodes were re-licensed to ITV in 2002, and again in 2005.
