Marco Pierre White’s Kitchen Wars on Channel 5 – here’s what it’s all about!
Over seven programmes Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White scours the UK searching for the best chef and restaurant front-of-house
team. Whether they are married, friends or family, all the couples have to prove they can cook well and serve with style.
Marco hits the road in his Battle Truck – a specially designed mobile kitchen where the couples will have to cook and serve their tastiest dish.
The couples – chef and front of house – have just 30 minutes to create their very best meal, present it in style and win a place in the next round. Marco is hard to please, so each couple has to come up with a spectacular dish to get him and the crowd on their side and stand any chance of getting through the stages.
The Battle Truck starts its journey in Yorkshire before heading to Covent Garden in London. And if the teams won’t come to him, Marco goes to them, surprising some couples at their own restaurants and making them cook their best dishes on their home turf.
The teams are ﬁghting for a place in the ﬁnal 12 where they will go head to head in a unique eating environment – the Battle Kitchen – which is three restaurants under one roof where the couples will serve 75 diners an amazing three course meal.
Which restaurant couples have the passion, the skills, the menu and the drive to impress Marco and the public?
Marco’s search begins where his career started, in Leeds, where he samples the hospitality and haute cuisine of the north. He sets up in the city centre where the cream of the couples who applied get the chance to cook for him in person.
