12 chefs travel across the globe testing their skills and determination. In each episode, the contestants will travel to a different international city where they will learn the local customs, cultures, and cuisines as they participate in a gauntlet of culinary challenges. Ultimately, they will face-off in a [font=inherit !important][font=inherit !important]kitchen[/font][/font] takeover where they will not only recreate, but reinvent the menus for world-renowned restaurants and their demanding owners.
It's pretty fun, though they clearly have not got the bugs worked out... there seems to be a lack of clarity between good and "authentic" (I see the same problem in another fun show form BBC, No Kitchen Required)
It's clear the people getting kicked off are not the ones the judges would choose, keeping it interesting.
My money is on nookie.
I think I have a kitchen competition addiction problem.
