    • 11/27/12
      It’s New York City - arguably the culinary capital of the country and where the competition is cutthroat. The final 3 chefs have cooked their way across America on their cooking, trading and survival skills. Now, they have to do something that is very NYC centric - sell their own dishes from street carts - and the ingredients are from challenges along their coast to coast journey: bison, offal, goat meat and pigs’ feet! The chef with the least profit will be sent packing. Then it’s onto the ultimate showdown for 2 chefs: they will create their very own rival restaurants on a terrace of a stylish Manhattan hotel. The victor will take home $100,000 and be crowned the winner of Chef Race!moreless

    • Hot Sauce Hustle
      Episode 6
      In America's barbecue capital, Memphis, Tennessee, the teams create their own barbecue sauce from scratch and then take to the streets to sell 1,000 bottles. It's a big culinary and marketing challenge that pits Team U.K.'s "BAD ASS" sauce vs. Team U.S.' "UNCLE SAMMY'S" blend. The Americans strategy is all patriotic with their slogan, "It's un-American not to buy this sauce!" and they triumph with a big sell at a gourmet market. But the Brits' signature blend strikes gold with a motorcycle gang. The winning team is crowned at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.moreless
