Tyler Florence is on the hunt for the best chef in each city in the new series, Bite Club. Premiering Thursday, Sept. 6 at 9|8c, each episode follows Tyler to a new city where he'll pit five of the city's best chefs against each other. They'll arrive prepared to cook in an unknown kitchen, but are greeted with a game of chance that results in three chefs cooking and two chefs becoming the competition's judges. The three chefs go head-to-head in two rounds of intense secret ingredient cooking battles, where their peers ultimately decide who becomes the city's Bite Club champ.

In the series premiere, five of Chicago's most talented chefs meet Tyler in an Italian restaurant kitchen they have never cooked in before. Round one throws the competitors for a loop when they are presented with alligator meat. The most successful two chefs move to the next round, but only one is named the Windy City's Bite Club champ.

Don't miss the premiere of Bite Club, Thursday, Sept. 6 at 9|8c!
