Flying Knives

America’s top Teppanyaki chefs have come to Hawaii to slice and dice their way through two rounds of competition. The speed round is a blur of steel, fire and steam as the competitors cook a surf and turf dinner in the time it usually takes to order a meal. In the signature round anything goes as the competitors attempt to entertain a tough panel of judges using everything from magic to juggling, all while creating a mind-blowing meal. Be careful. This show is dangerous!
