Recipe for Deception is a reality competition series where a chef's ability to lie is almost as important as their culinary skills.
In each episode, Silvestri guides four new chefs through three head-to-head elimination rounds in which they are tasked with creating a stunning dish featuring a main ingredient. The twist is that they have no idea what that ingredient is while they are cooking. Based on the popular parlor game "Two Truths and a Lie" competing chefs ask each one of the three "yes or no" questions to determine what their mystery component is and their opponent answers strategically with two truthful answers and one outright lie. Judges Oh and Waxman grade the chefs on their final dishes based on overall quality and how well they incorporated their secret ingredient. In the final round, eliminated chefs have a chance to scheme their way back into the competition by trading potentially valuable information about the undisclosed ingredient for a chance at the $10,000 prize.
