I’m sitting here Monday night writing this up to post Tuesday morning, and I’m sweltering. I swear it feels like a hundred degrees in here! Bleh. Unfortunately, while it only (only. LOL) got up to 94 today, tomorrow we’re supposed to break 100 for the first time (I think?) this summer. So…Double bleh! On a good note, Tuesdays are one of my favorite days of the week this summer for TV, so I’m thrilled about that. Check out what we’re recommending!
My pick tonight is the new series Food Fighters on NBC. Adam Richman (Man Vs. Food) hosts this show in which an amateur home cook will face off with five professional chefs. The home cooks will have five of their best signature dishes, and for each professional chef that comes out, the home cook will choose which of their dishes they and the chef must cook. The completed dishes will be judged in a blind taste test, and the verdict will determine the winner of that round. The home cook wins money for every round, and in the fifth and final round, they money they can win is double whatever they’ve won so far in the previous four rounds. The professional chefs include Cat Cora, Lorena Garcia, G. Garvin, Duff Goldman, Elizabeth Faulkner, Jet Tila, & more.
I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and I gotta say that it’s a heck of a lot of fun. It’s great trying to watch the home cook figure out which dish the professional chef is most likely to know the least about, although they don’t know who’s coming up in the later rounds, so it can be a bit dicey. It’s a fun twist on a cooking competition show, and I can’t wait to see more.
On tonight’s episode, “Elisha Joyce,” a married mother of three tries to win up to $100,000 as she faces off one by one against five culinary pros, including acclaimed celebrity chef Lorena Garcia.
Find out how much, if any, money the home cook takes home tonight on NBC at 8/7c.
