Knife Fight is an underground reality cooking competition show where chefs go head-to-head before a rowdy crowd of celebrities, critics and die-hard foodies.


Two chefs go head-to-head, making at least two dishes in one hour from a combination of secret ingredients. In each match-up, chefs feel the heat as they're cheered and heckled by a rowdy crowd - including celebrites, food professionals and die-hard foodies who serves as judges and timekeepers, such as Drew Barrymore, Elijah Wood, Jason Lee, Bijou Phillips, Erika Christensen and more.
