Whether extracting ingredients from a block of ice or using a Swiss Army knife as a lone cooking utensil, three chefs are pushed to their physical and mental limits in each episode of Extreme Chef. The series takes chefs out of their kitchen comfort zone to test their wits, adaptability and artistry as they must adapt to extreme conditions and unpredictable factors including swimming across a lake for ingredients and constructing a makeshift stove in only 30 minutes. In a series of arduous challenges, the competitors must impress judges and various guest critics with their unique culinary masterpieces to earn the title Extreme Chef.
The final three chefs battle in the jungles of Thailand for the $50,000 grand prize in the Season 2 finale. They work with elephants and members of a native tribe before climbing hundreds of stairs to create the perfect bite in front of a Buddhist temple.
