From a media release:
Food Network Canada and HLP are pleased to announce that the exciting new series Chef In Your Ear 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.
In Chef In Your Ear, some of Canada’s best chefs must create mouth-watering dishes that top their competitors. Standing between victory and defeat for these chefs are some of the country’s most clueless cooks – and they 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 chef decides the loser’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 at thecastinggroup.com.

Series Producer is Daniel Gelfant. Co-Series Producer is LeAnne Armano. Supervising Producer is Angela Donald. International distribution is by The Format People.
