Premieres Thursday, September 6 at 9 PM ET/PT on Food Network
Tyler Florence hits some of the country’s top food cities and pits local chefs against each other in a fierce fight to become their hometown champ in the competition series Bite Club.
In each location, chefs arrive prepared to cook in an unknown kitchen, and are greeted with a game of chance that results in two chefs becoming the competition’s judges. The three remaining chefs then 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.
