From a media release:
Food Network CanadaÂ andÂ HLPÂ are pleased to announce that the exciting new seriesÂ Chef In Your EarÂ has been given a green light. This innovative original format for Food Network Canada is a fresh take on adrenaline-pumping, culinary competition programming, with a twist. Production begins March 2015.
InÂ Chef In Your Ear, some of Canadaâ€™s best chefs must create mouth-watering dishes that top their competitors. Standing between victory and defeat for these chefs are some of the countryâ€™s most clueless cooks â€“ andÂ theyÂ have to do all the cooking. Isolated away from the kitchen, the professional chefs guide their novice cooks through every step of a dish using only an earpiece and television monitor. With reputations on the line in this edge-of-your-seat culinary series, the winning chefÂ decides the loserâ€™s fate and the loser must oblige.
Casting is now open for brave souls who fear the kitchen. Individuals who want to laugh, learn and brush up on their cooking skills are invited to apply atÂ thecastinggroup.com.
