No Kitchen Required (10 x 60′) – Three chefs are dropped into a remote location where each must work with the locals to hunt, forage and collect ingredients to create a locally-inspired meal that will be judged by the community.
The three fearless chefs are award-winning New York restaurateur Michael Psilakis, first ever Chopped Grand Championchef Madison Cowan, who has roots in London, Detroit and Jamaica, and New Zealand chef Kayne Raymond. The trio will leave the comforts of their kitchens and are dropped into ten different remote locations including Thailand, Belize, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Australia and New Zealand as well as the Louisiana Bayou, South Carolina’s Outer Banks, Big Cypress, Florida and Hawaii. The series will be hosted by British presenter Shini Somara (BBC’s One Show, BBC World News’ The Health Show), who will join the chefs on the adventure.
In a new location every episode, each chef is free to choose whatever indigenous ingredients he wants – the catch is that each must acquire and prepare the ingredients in the same manner as the locals. Whether it’s hunting wild boar or diving for oysters, this series is about getting your hands dirty, pushing boundaries and experiencing incredible situations the audience would never expect to encounter in a typical food show. The chefs’ meals will ultimately be judged by the community and only one will be crowned the winner each episode.
