Food Network Canada takes viewers on a high-intensity, culinary race in the new series Chefs vs. City. Premiering March 30 at 10 pm ET/7pm PT, acclaimed chefs Chris Consentino and Aarón Sanchez travel across the United States and are pitted against a pair of local foodies in a series of intense culinary challenges to see which team will come out on top.
In each episode, the two teams compete in an adrenaline-charged, food-lovers’ tour of a city, completing five difficult epicurean challenges along the way. Throughout the season, Chris and Aarón visit New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, Boston and New Orleans. Challenges include everything from wine stomping to eating the spiciest dishes in the country to crab fishing in a gator infested river. Once the teams have completed their challenges, 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.
The first two premiere episodes include:
