DESCRIPTION:
(from The CW's press release, June 2020) Top chefs compete to make an amazing feast using leftovers and ingredients found in your fridge in the culinary competition FRIDGE WARS. Each episode, two top chefs are pitted against one another with a challenge to create extraordinary meals using only the ingredients taken from the fridges of ordinary families. We learn why dinnertime is a source of stress and panic when host Emma Hunter visits a family's home and conducts a surprise fridge raid - taking everything from last week's leftover lasagna to the condiment collection, and even snatching that questionable bag of frozen vegetables from 2016. The competition commences back at the FRIDGE WARS studio where the family's fridge is recreated for both chefs. Once the clock starts, the chefs have 45 minutes to get dinner on the table - cooking with ingredients they've never seen for people they've never met! Inside their fridges, the chefs scour through the ingredients imagining what they can possibly pull together. But it's the outside of the fridge that holds clues that guide the chefs to create a winning meal strategy. The family calendar, take-out menus, photos and maybe a gluten-free recipe are all potential clues to influence what meal will be a hit with these total strangers. When time's up, the family takes their place at the dining room table and tastes each meal, scoring them on look, taste and originality - without knowing who cooked what. Those results go in the FRIDGE WARS vault and we do it all again with a new family and a new fridge full of challenges, this time upping the ante with a "What the Fridge (WTF) Challenge" that forces both chefs to adapt to a totally unique culinary crisis. With both families' scores tabulated, the final scene reveals which chef successfully created a mouth-watering masterpiece to win the "Fridge Wars" battle. Hosted by comedian Emma Hunter, FRIDGE WARS is co-produced and co-created by The Gurin Company and the CBC. The show is executive produced by Tracie Tighe (CBC) and Emmy(R) and Rose d'Or winner Phil Gurin (The Gurin Company).
