Local, Cattlemen's on BBC America Tonight
Legendary Oklahoma City restaurant Cattlemen’s Steakhouse and up-and-coming Norman restaurant Local will be in the spotlight tonight on BBC America’s new show, “Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S.”
From executive producer Jamie Oliver, the show pits eight British chefs against eight American chefs, against each other as they race across the country in the hopes of winning a grand prize of $100,000 dollars.
Michelin-starred London restaurateur, Richard Corrigan serves as judge and Claire Robinson hosts the show, which is new BBC American this year.
The race began on the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, where Team U.K. and Team U.S. were stripped of their cash and credit cards and challenged to cook to survive, cook to prosper and cook to win. In the 10 one-hour episodes, the teams battle coast to coast from Los Angeles to New York City, with the chefs living off their culinary skills and business savvy to survive and make it to their next destination. In the beginning, they will work as teams and cook to turn a profit. The team with the biggest profit moves on and the losing team faces elimination, but in the end, there will only be one winner.
As tonight’s episode unfolds, the number of chefs is down to 12 as they arrive in Dodge City, Kan., Norman and Oklahoma City to visit Local and Cattlemen’s.
