Just how far is a chef willing to go to win a cooking competition? Cutthroat Kitchen hands four chefs US $25,000 and the opportunity to spend that money on helping themselves or sabotaging their competitors. Ingredients will be thieved, utensils destroyed, and valuable time on the clock lost when these chefs compete to cook delicious dishes while also having to out-plot the competition. Each episode will see chefs innovate on the fly to beat the competition; we’ll see kitchen knives replaced with lamb shears, ingredients that must be chiselled from a block of ice, and main ingredients taken away, in a bid to come out on top. With Alton Brown as the devilish provocateur nothing is out of bounds when money changes hands and we see just how far one chef will go to ensure they have the winning dish.
