About the Show

It's a fast-paced battle between two teams with only their love of food in common – and nothing else! It's Hell's Angels versus soccer moms, grandmas versus high school home ec students, Junior League ladies versus a construction crew. They meet at a local restaurant and are presented with a surprise regional specialty – crabs in Baltimore, cheese in Wisconsin, catfish in Alabama – that will be the focus of their dish. Then, with a stopwatch running and $20 at their disposal, they head to the store for additional ingredients. Back in the kitchen, their goal is to out-cook – and out-razz – the opposing team. Our expert judges, handpicked from an illustrious community of award-winning chefs, cookbook authors and local food experts, choose the winning team in this raucous cooking competition.
