The Food Network is premiering a new series that will pit acclaimed chefs Chris Cosentino and Aaron Sanchez against two local foodies in a winner-takes-all race through a different city each week, through the most fascinating, unusual food locations. Each team begins with a clue leading them to their first food challenge. Challenges could include everything from wine stomping to the eating the spiciest chili west of the Mississippi to diving for sea urchins! Keep reading for more details on the premiere…
The five challenges take the chefs and foodies on an adrenaline-charged, food-lover’s tour of each city, and once complete, it’s a sprint to the finish line to see if the locals can protect their home turf or if the Food Network chefs can conquer a new city.
In the season premiere of Chefs vs. City, chefs AarÃƒn SÃƒnchez and Chris Cosentino jump right into their first challenge and hit the streets of New York City to battle fellow Food Network stars Claire Robinson of “5 Ingredient Fix” and Food 2′s Kelsey Nixon of “Kelsey & Spike Cook.” During five intense challenges, the teams take on a taste-test at Dylan’s Candy Bar before heading to Russ & Daughters, a culinary landmark in New York City. To wrap up the extreme challenges, the teams heads to The Brick Lane Curry House to devour the hottest dish in the world.
The series will premiere Friday, August 7th at 10pm.
