DESCRIPTION: (from GSN's press release, July 2012) An hour-long show in which everyday people who love to cook set out to prove that their family recipes are worth prize money and bragging rights. Each week, the show pits homespun talents against those of professional chefs as they cook the same dish - from firehouse chili to Grandma's famous chicken and dumplings - but who will do it better? A panel of expert food critics will judge and decide if the amateurs can "beat the chefs." Hosted by former American Idol finalist Matt Rogers ("Coming Home"), BEAT THE CHEFS is produced by RelativityREAL, with Tom Forman as Executive Producer.
