Pressure Cooker

PRESSURE COOKER is a fun and fast new food competition format that offers great takeaway in the food and travel space. It's 'The Amazing Race' meets 'Top Chef.' In each hour-long episode we're in a different American city with 3 new teams, competing for food glory, and a cash prize. One member of each team is a professional chef, while their partner (friend, relative or coworker) has no culinary expertise.The teams have 5 hours to source and prepare 3 top-class dishes - an appetizer, entrée and dessert, at a specially constructed set kitchen at an iconic location in the town or city center. With a budget of 500 bucks, a map and a smart phone (with no internet), they must source the best produce from the best local suppliers (no chain stores), and create a world class meal for our panel of judges. Points will be awarded for finding the best local foodie hotspots in addition to taste, presentation and ingenuity. Contestants can create whatever they want but one dish must be homage to the city or their interpretation of a classic local dish.
