This globe-trotting culinary journey will test their skills and determination as each episode has contestants traveling to a different international city where they will have to learn local customs, cultures and cuisines.
The chefs will face new challenges, new experts, new twists and new food on their journey. They'll be competing in a kitchen takeovers where they will be challenged to not only recreate, but “reinvent” menus for world-renowned restaurants and their owners. Good luck with that!
