'Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S.,' every Tuesday at 10/9c. on BBC America
Celebrity Chef and executive producer Jamie Oliver presents “Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S.,” a fresh new original unscripted series that follows 16 chefs, 8 Americans and 8 Brits, as they race across the American heartland from Los Angeles to New York City in hopes of winning $100,000.
Throughout the journey the chefs are accompanied by hosts, Michelin-starred London restaurateur Richard Corrigan (“Masterchef”), and Claire Robinson (“5 Ingredient Fix”). With no money and minimal resources, the chefs must rely on more than just their cooking skills — resourcefulness, ingenuity, leadership and finesse will be equally as important on their 3,000 mile adventure.
“The restaurant business is one of the toughest in the world and to be successful in it these days takes so much more than just being able to cook. You’ve got to have a good business sense, vision, leadership and so much more. This series is the first time that anyone has really dug deep into what it takes to be successful and it’s going to take an incredible individual to win it,” says Oliver.
The teams have to live off the land for three days within 10,000 acres of Grand Mesa, Colorado wilderness. The chefs must hunt, fish and forage to make the meal of a lifetime for locals and the best meal will determine the winning team. Three chefs from the losing team go up for elimination and have one hour to cook a wild turkey dish. The chef will the weakest dish is sent home. (46 second video clip)
Head judge Richard Corrigan has a deep respect for the art of foraging and fishing. See what he has to say about his time in Colorado. Don't miss the next episode of 'Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S.,' every Tuesday at 10/9c.
