Raid the Fridge will premiere on Food Network on September 1st with host Dan Ahdoot overseeing a competition that pits four professional chefs in a head to head battle with food from mystery refrigerators. This is a fun family show that people will immediately be able to relate to as this is a pretty common issue across households trying to put together a meal from what you have still in the refrigerator. What is going to be fun is that while each fridge will be a mystery, there will be clues to what may be inside with photos, magnets, calendars and art. There will be three rounds and then the judges, Jordan Andino and Jamika Pessoa, get involved to determine a winner.
It sounds like Raid the Fridge will not only be a great show to watch, but may also help out some families with new ideas on what to do with leftovers. Can we also just mention that we just love Dan Ahdoot as he continues to wow us as Anoush on Cobra Kai and we love seeing him hosting a cooking show as an extension to his food podcast.
Raid the Fridge – Premieres Wednesday, September 1st at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network
Searching the refrigerator for something to cook is a regular occurrence in households across the country and in the new competition series Raid the Fridge, four professional chefs do just that in a head-to-head battle to turn ordinary items from mystery refrigerators into top-notch dishes. Hosted by comedian, actor and food podcast host Dan Ahdoot, each episode begins with the chef competitors using their intuition to choose a refrigerator based only on how it looks on the outside, with clues from the photos, magnets, calendars and art on the door. But looks can be deceiving and sometimes a bachelor pad’s shelves are better stocked than the family of four, so there’s always an element of surprise. After three rounds of cooking challenges using only the mix of fresh ingredients, packaged items and leftovers from their chosen refrigerator, judges Jordan Andino and Jamika Pessoa determine which chef wins a fridge full of $10,000.
