It will be a delicate balance of risk and reward for chefs on Food Networkâ€™s brand-new upcoming series "Kitchen Inferno", as theyâ€™re forced to bet on their skills with cash on the line. Each week beginning Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 10|9c, contestants will face off in culinary showdowns in front of a live audience during the course of four possible rounds â€” how far they advance depends on their willingness to tempt fate by playing for more money and risking it all in the process. With a grand prize of $25,000 at stake, chefs will be forced to do more than execute a properly seasoned plate or a beautifully adorned dish; as they begin their journey up the culinary ladder, theyâ€™ll face tests that are progressively more difficult, and itâ€™s up to them to decide which to tackle and when to walk away. They can continue playing for the whopping sum, but if they chance their luck and fail, theyâ€™ll have to forfeit their winnings and succumb to blazing defeat. Host Curtis Stone will be on hand to oversee the fiery contest, and after each round, a panel of leading culinarians will execute blind taste tests to determine the winner. Because the judges wonâ€™t know whether a dish is prepared by a chef contestant or one of the all-star challengers, including Elizabeth Falkner, Geoffrey Zakarian, Jet Tila, Madison Cowan and Michael Chiarello, itâ€™s anybodyâ€™s game.
