About the Show
It’s cook or be cooked as chefs face off in underground, after-hours cooking bouts in a gritty new cooking competition show hosted by Top Chef Season 2 winner Ilan Hall. For each half-hour episode, two chefs go head-to-head, making at least two dishes in one hour from a combination of two to three secret ingredients. Each match-up takes place at The Gorbals, Hall’s downtown L.A. restaurant, where chefs feel the heat as they’re cheered and heckled by a rowdy crowd – including an eclectic group of celebrities, food professionals and die-hard foodies who serve as judges and timekeepers, including Drew Barrymore, Elijah Wood, Jason Lee, Bijou Phillips, Erika Christensen and more.
Best known for winning Season 2 of Top Chef, he is also owner of The Gorbals in downtown Los Angeles. Now, he’s the host of Knife Fight, a gritty new cooking competition show featuring after-hours cooking bouts between Hall’s chef friends in The Gorbals kitchen.Read More
