[via press release from Food Network]
ALEX GUARNASCHELLI RETURNS TO BATTLE CHEFS IN THE CULINARY ARENA IN NEW SEASON OF “ALEX VS AMERICA” HOSTED BY ERIC ADJEPONG

New Season Premieres Sunday, July 31st at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network All Episodes Available to Stream on discovery+

NEW YORK – June 23, 2022 – Will Chef Alex Guarnaschelli’s winning streak continue? Food Network will find out when Alex returns with more intense and action-packed culinary battles on the new season of Alex vs America, premiering Sunday, July 31st at 9pm ET/PT. In each one-hour episode, Alex simultaneously takes on three talented and brave chefs from across the United States – all experts in the same culinary specialty. Acclaimed chef Eric Adjepong hosts Alex and the competitors in two rounds of challenges that put their culinary specialty skills to the test as they attempt to defeat Alex for ultimate bragging rights and a cash prize. Will the competitors prevail at beating Alex in her own arena or will she send all the ambitious chefs home with nothing but their disappointment? New episodes of Alex vs America are available to stream weekly on discovery+, beginning July 31st.

“I am so excited to step back into the arena to take on a new batch of chefs from across the country,” said Guarnaschelli. “These competitors are pulling out all the stops to showcase their culinary talent to try and bring me down. They have a lot on the line, but I don’t like to lose so they better bring their A-game.”

At the start of each battle, Eric Adjepong presents Alex and the competitors with the culinary theme for their dishes. In the first round, the competitors can work together to select ingredients and even decide how much time goes on the clock. Each dish undergoes a blind tasting from two judges well-versed in the episodic theme. Only the top three chefs advance to the next round, with the least successful challenger sent home, even if it is Alex. The chef who wins the first round earns the right to select all the variables for the second culinary challenge, with the remaining chefs’ final plates determining who comes out on top. During the season Alex and the formidable competitors are faced with creating masterful dishes from varying culinary disciplines, including French cuisine, dessert, vegetarian, modernist cuisine and more. Fans of Alex can also see how she prepares different recipes and techniques inspired by the challenges in the digital companion series, Alex vs America Prep School.

“Alex Guarnaschelli is one of the most feared chefs in any culinary competition. She has taken on the best of the best and triumphed, and now has her sights set on a new crop of supremely talented chefs that share the same culinary specialty and drive to best Alex,” said Jane Latman, President, Home & Food Content and Streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery. “This season of Alex vs America will have viewers feeling like they are in the arena with Alex, as she attempts to keep her streak alive.”

JEFF MAURO HITS THE SUBURBS TO SURPRISE NEIGHBORHOOD BLOCK PARTIES WITH THE ULTIMATE OUTDOOR CULINARY COMPETITION ON THE RETURN OF FOOD NETWORK’S “KITCHEN CRASH”

New Season Premieres Tuesday, July 12th at 10pm ET/PT

New York – June 9, 2022 – Host Jeff Mauro brings a new twist to outdoor culinary competitions on the return of Kitchen Crash, premiering on Tuesday, July 12th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network. On each of the four hour-long episodes, three professional chefs head to an unsuspecting local neighborhood block party on a suburban street and surprise the residents with an outdoor cook-off. These professional chefs must turn on the charm, with only 10 minutes on the clock, to convince the residents living on the block to hand over food from their fridge and provisions from their pantries to use in the competition. The residents of each household must gather all the ingredients from their kitchens for the competing chefs, who can only use the items that the homeowners fit into one bin. With no additional pantry items and no option to restock, the chefs must ration what they are given for the entire competition. The chef that can make world class dishes in their curbside kitchen will earn a cash prize to split with the family who provided the ingredients.

“No two pantries or fridges in America are alike, making the ingredients in the bins as varied as they can possibly be. The chefs must be able to communicate effectively with the family to get everything they need, and they need to be creative and resourceful with what they get. It really is difficult, but fun and exhilarating to watch,” said Mauro.

“The exciting and hysterical outdoor neighborhood cooking competition, Kitchen Crash is sure to entertain audiences, as Jeff Mauro’s charisma and wit along with all the surprising kitchen raids make for a must-see combination,” said Jane Latman, President, Home & Food Content and Streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery.

With their bins full of ingredients, the chefs must prove their skills in curbside kitchens. They will be tested in three rounds of challenges, including savory surf and turf, French bistro fare, an elevated prom night dinner, and more. Jeff Mauro along with one special guest judge, including Cliff Crooks, Marc Murphy, Julian Rodarte, and Justin Sutherland will decide who crushed the competition. In the end, one winning chef will split a $10,000 cash prize with their lucky host family!

Fans can get Jeff’s cooking tips, how-tos and recipes at FoodNetwork.com/KitchenCrash. Plus, follow all the action using #KitchenCrash.

Kitchen Crash is produced by Big Fish Entertainment for Food Network.

FROM THE PRODUCERS OF “90 DAY FIANCÉ” COMES THE NEW HIGH-STAKES, HIGH-DRAMA FOOD NETWORK SERIES “ME OR THE MENU”

WITH THE ODDS STACKED AGAINST THEM, THE RELATIONSHIPS OF FOUR COUPLES ARE PUT TO THE TEST AS THEY WORK TO FULFILL THEIR RESTAURANT DREAMS

New Docu-Series Premieres Thursday, June 30th at 10pm ET/ PT on Food Network and discovery+

NEW YORK – May 23, 2022 – A new twist on the relationship docu-series, Me or the Menu, finds four couples trying to beat the odds of ending up in divorce court, while also navigating the unique challenges of the cutthroat restaurant industry. From the producers of the mega-hit franchise 90 Day Fiancé, this new Food Network series premieres Thursday, June 30th at 10pm ET/PT and will also stream on discovery+. Me or the Menu shines a spotlight on some of the reasons that approximately 60 percent of restaurants fail and nearly 50 percent of marriages end in divorce, and while some of the featured couples have just opened the doors of their new restaurants, others are diving-in headfirst hoping to make it to opening day. Despite being at different stages of their journeys, each couple feels the pressure to make their business and their relationship a success, but balancing a stressful restaurant start-up and the needs of a significant other may prove to be the ultimate test. These couples know that if they want to keep their restaurant dreams alive it won’t be easy, but they hope it will be worth it.

“Me or the Menu gives audiences an intimate look at the lives of four restaurateur couples chasing their dreams of owning a restaurant, but the stress it creates is like a pressure cooker as they navigate obstacles, conflicts and tough decisions affecting their businesses and relationships,” said Jane Latman, President, Home & Food Content and Streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery.

The Me or the Menu couples include:

Kathleen Murray and Nate Albert (Lombard, IL)

Kathleen is the owner of Saucy Kat Food Truck and has a lofty goal of turning her food truck into a restaurant. She needs the help and support of her younger fiancé Nate, often causing her to treat him like an employee rather than a partner. Everything hinges on their success serving lunch at a big food truck event, but Nate’s mistakes cause them to lose hundreds of dollars and his attitude drives a huge wedge in their relationship. Nate’s lack of motivation causes Kathleen to have doubts about his commitment to her, and he must earn back Kathleen’s trust by proving he is just as committed of a business partner as he is a romantic partner.

Randi Lee and Jeanette Zinno (Brooklyn, NY)

Working long hours puts pressure on Randi, an industry veteran and first-time restaurant owner, and his fiancée, Jeanette. They have put their wedding plans on the back burner until Randi can pay back his restaurant investors. Jeanette has invested thousands of dollars into the business and has put her own career on hold to help. She fills in as the hostess, washes dishes, and does whatever is needed at the restaurant so Randi doesn’t have to pay another full-time staff member. Now, Jeanette is finally ready to step back from the restaurant, but Randi questions whether he can really run the restaurant without her.

James Martin and Jessica Neal (Chicago, IL)

James is a rising culinary star, and his wife Jessica, argue about finances both at home and at the restaurant. James isn’t taking home a paycheck and Jessica feels the pressure to be the sole breadwinner working two jobs. But despite being overworked, Jessica refuses to relinquish control of her responsibilities at the restaurant to pay extra money for help. Will the financial strain be too much on their relationship?

Nicole Baldwin and Alan Yuhanna (Houston, TX)

Nicole, a self-taught cook with big dreams of opening a vegan restaurant, needs the help and support of her boyfriend, Alan. Neither one of them have any experience in the restaurant industry, so they are starting from scratch to learn the ropes. The pair clash over power dynamics as they must come up with a menu and find a location they can afford. It all comes to a head when Nicole loses her cool when they host a pop-up to test their concept with customers and investors.

Fans can get to know the couples risking it all in the restaurant business at FoodNetwork.com/MeOrTheMenu. Follow along with the drama on social media using #MeOrTheMenu and tell us which couples will stick together or fall apart.
