Beat the Chef



If you’re over the domestic goddess and the naked chef or need an idea for dinner tonight, then the fast-paced cooking contest, Beat the Chef, has just the right ingredients. A fashionably retro kitchen set is the scene for a confrontation between a pair of amateur cooks, a professional chef, a pair of live wire hosts, a concealed ‘must use’ ingredient and a ticking clock.

Each program features two challengers, at least one of whom is a capable cook, who are determined to prepare a better meal than a talented professional chef. With one central ingredient revealed to the team around which a dish must be conceived, the competitors raid the fridge and a well stocked pantry to conjure up a meal in moments. Twenty-five minutes and time’s up!
