Food Network Canada has a brand new lineup of delicious content hitting the schedule this year!
Hot off the press, here’s the scoop on what we’re dishing up this fall:
Guy & Rachael’s Kids Cook-Off
Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri team up again, and this time they are challenging the most impressive, determined and downright adorable competitors ever – kids! In each episode they mentor and guide the young chefs, who prove to themselves and viewers that you don’t need a driver’s licence to be an amazing cook.
Just how far is a chef willing to go to win a cooking competition? Cutthroat Kitchen hands four chefs $25,000 and the opportunity to spend that money to either help themselves or sabotage their competitors. Ingredients will be thieved, utensils destroyed and valuable time lost when these chefs compete to cook delicious dishes while plotting against the competition. With Alton Brown as the devilish provocateur, nothing is out of bounds when money changes hands and viewers see just how far one chef will go to ensure they have the winning dish.
Food Court Wars
Food Court Wars pits two teams of aspiring food entrepreneurs against one another as they battle to win their own food court restaurant rent-free for a year. Hosted by Tyler Florence, each episode features a mall in a different city that is looking to open a new ‘local’ eatery in its food court. Stakes are high as teams must test their concept, market their brand and run their outlet for a full day of feeding hungry shoppers. The team whose restaurant makes the most profit wins their eatery space – a prize worth $100,000.
Partners in Crime
Every day, more than $25 million worth of goods are stolen from retailers – and food businesses top the list. In order to prevent this, stores hire security experts like Scott McDonald and Connie Ribble. Funny and fearless, cunning and comic, they can steal a store blind – all in the service of showing the owner where the security flaws are. Ultimately, they are making food businesses stronger, one heist at a time.
Meet the First Family of Mississippi BBQ, the Orrisons. Their wildly popular BBQ joints earned them fame, fortune, devoted fans and a lot of big toys. But no matter how big their business grows, the boisterous, fun loving clan insists on running the business as a family. Add in all the colourful employees and regulars and it’s obvious: this down home joint is a real-life sitcom.
Robert Irvine has gathered eight aspiring restaurateurs for a bus road trip of a lifetime. Through a rigorous set of challenges, Robert will be looking at every aspect of their business acumen and testing all the skills needed to run their own restaurant. In the end, only one person will remain on the bus, ultimately dropped-off at their final stop: their very own restaurant.
Trisha’s Southern Kitchen
Music superstar and best-selling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood brings her family-inspired recipes and food traditions to Food Network Canada with Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. Each themed show invites viewers into Trisha’s kitchen for her favourite meals, nostalgic stories and visits from family and friends, giving viewers a one-of-a-kind look into Trisha’s life, along with unique how-to tips and techniques for creating down-home dishes.
