Outchef’d Is Back With Brand-New Battles Between Home Cooks and Elite Chefs
Hosted By Eddie Jackson, Series Returns for Season Two on Thursday, June 15 at 9:30pm ET/PT
Talented home cooks get the shock of their lives in the twelve-episode second season of Outchef’d, premiering Thursday, June 15th at 9:30pm ET/PT on Food Network. In each episode hosted by Eddie Jackson, a confident home cook arrives thinking they are entering an audition – but to their surprise, it’s “lights, cameras, action” as they are immediately ushered into a head-to-head culinary battle against a renowned world-class chef. After an ingredient-themed cooking round, Eddie hits the streets to find four regular folks for a blind tasting panel that will determine the winner. To level the playing field between the competitors and pros, the home chef only needs to receive one vote to win a $5,000 prize. In the premiere episode, a home cook is stunned when Eddie Jackson gives them the chance to face off against celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito and the entrepreneur will have to wow the judges to get that one coveted vote to keep Rocco from taking the win. Elite chefs competing against home cooks this season are: Eric Adjepong, Kelsey Bernard Clark, Tiffani Faison, Darnell Ferguson, Alex Guarnaschelli, Robert Irvine, Antonia Lofaso, Joe Sasto and Geoffrey Zakarian.
“Capturing the mind-blowing moment these home cooks find out they are heading straight to set to battle a culinary superstar is such fun – and the action only heightens from there,” said Betsy Ayala, Head of Content, Food, Warner Bros. Discovery. “They have all watched cooking competitions and thought they have what it takes to win – and in Outchef’d, we actually find out if they do!”
Viewers can head to Food Network’s social pages to relive unforgettable moments from the competition and hear from the chefs about their best culinary tips for home cooks. Fans can also join weekly Twitter parties @FoodNetwork and follow the conversation using #OutChefd.
Outchef’d is produced by Frank for Food Network.
