Big Cook Little Cook

Big Cook, Little Cook is a television series for nursery school-aged children broadcast on BBC television channels (particularly the CBeebies digital television channel). The programme is set in the kitchen of a café, with two principal characters, Big Cook Ben and Little Cook Small. Ben is a full-sized adult, but Small is only a few inches tall and flies around on a wooden spoon. Ben and Small are played by Stephen Marsh and Dan Wright respectively. The format of a programme generally includes a visit to the café by a nursery rhyme or fairy tale character (such as Little Miss Muffet or Humpty Dumpty). Little Cook tells a story about the visitor which paints himself as the real hero, and then they decide to cook the visitor an appropriate meal from Big Cook's recipe book. Typically, one vital ingredient is usually missing from the kitchen cupboards, which gives Little Cook an opportunity to fly off on his spoon to retrieve the missing item (leading to a video insert of a farm or a factory where the missing ingredient is made or packaged). Activities within the kitchen, such as washing up and tidying up, are accompanied by catchy song and dance routines. Both cooks act in an expansive and overblown style, but the show seems intended to encourage children to take an interest in cooking. Big Cook does most of the actual cooking; Little Cook does some preparation or sets the timer. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA Licen...
