‘Around the World in 80 Plates’ will air Friday May 11th on CNBC

The culinary competition follows chefs as they compete in world-renowned restaurants around the globe.

‘Around the World in 80 Plates’ is a high-pressure action-packed reality show in contestants scavenge-hunt through different cities performing high-stakes tasks for a chance to win the “Exceptional Ingredient,” which they can use in the elimination round while local diners judge them on their culinary skills.

In each episode, the contestants will travel to a different international city where they will learn the local customs, cultures and cuisines as they participate in a gauntlet of culinary challenges- all while being at the mercy of the demanding restaurant owners. Ultimately, they will face-off in a kitchen takeover where they will not just recreate, but reinvent the menus for these world-renowned restaurants. Nigella Lawson serves as local food expert in this show which takes culinary competition to a heated level.
