Crash My Kitchen
Crash My Kitchen is a prime time "culinary makeover" show designed to dig you out of your food rut and open up a world of culinary possibilities. Crash My Kitchen combines the audacious intervention of What Not To Wear with the comic support of Queer Eye For The Straight Guy.
From shopping to cooking, to the dining experience, Crash My Kitchen frees you of your old cooking habits and gives the palette a new perspective, encouraging you to explore and experiment, transforming old favorites and creating new ones.
From the moment "The Real-Life Hero" is ambushed at the dinner table, our dream team of food therapist Lisa Helmanis, Chef Corbin Tomaszeski and stylist Jasmine Baker take over, critiquing the "before" meal and customizing a makeover menu that’s made to measure.
Staying true to taste, budget and lifestyle. Corbin leads the Hero through the "meal-a-morphosis". With some simple tricks and surprising revelations, he transforms their humdrum dish and the Hero into a culinary champ.
Once the meal is complete our food stylist goes to work, offering unique and playful touches that make the dish a feast for the eyes.
Crash My Kitchen is shot and packaged in a fast paced, funky style. The cheeky humour and useful information will appeal all wannabe chefs in need of a "dine intervention".
