‘Cutthroat Kitchen’ returns Sunday on Food Network

See also

If you are a fan of Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen” then you will be glad to know the show returns this Sunday, Dec. 15. This season’s episodes will bring the same ruthless rules as before. In case you are thinking of watching for the first time, here is a brief summary of the show’s premise.

Four chefs will compete using their culinary talents to woo the guest judge until a winner is chosen. The twist is sabotage in all flavors. The chefs begin the competition with $25,000 each. As they are asked to prepare different dishes, host Alton Brown provides them with ways to spend their money. They can spend it on items to help themselves or items to disrupt their opponents – the choice is theirs. Each item is bid upon by the contestants and they must strategize how best to use it. At the end of the competition, the winning chef receives whatever money he or she does not spend from the original amount.

The types of biddable items range from food replacements to equipment changes. There might be flavored jelly beans instead of spices or hot plates instead of stoves. There could be chefs who are not allowed to taste their own food or who have to create their own utensils from tin foil. However, the result must always be the same – a great tasting, creative dish which will be judged.

So, whether you are a current fan or new to the show, tune in this weekend to see what types of crazy items are up for auction and how they will be used. The season premiere of “Cutthroat Kitchen” will air Sunday at 10 p.m. EST on Food Network.
