About the Show
The table is set for the ultimate culinary clash in this one part cooking competition, one part game show. Host Adam Richman ( Man v. Food ) will give homegrown amateur cooks the chance to test their skills against professional chefs. Every down-home cook has that one signature dish or secret family recipe that always gains favor with friends and family. Now, imagine going head-to-head in the kitchen against five professional chefs, who try to cook your specialty dish even better than you in the hopes of winning over a dinner party made up of the American public. With each savored victory, the cash prize gets bigger and bigger as the home cooks rise to every challenge and outcook the professional chefs. Think you've got what it takes to serve up the competition?
Adam Richman grew up in the food mecca of New York City and began his love affair with food early on, sampling all the diverse culinary specialties the Big Apple has to offer. From samosas to sushi, even at a young age, Richman had a desire to taste it all.
Years later, as an undergraduate at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, he began a food journal to document the standout food establishments he was discovering throughout the southeastern United States.
