DESCRIPTION:
(from Esquire Network's press release, July 2015) It's cooked or be cooked! Esquire Network has greenlit a fourth season of the raucous under-ground cooking competition series KNIFE FIGHT, which wraps season three with an epic one-hour finale tonight, Tuesday, July 14 at 10/9c. In each episode, two chefs go head-to-head, making at least two dishes in a single hour from a combination of secret ingredients judged by Chef Ilan Hall. Production on season four begins mid-July at Hall's Brooklyn-based restaurant, The Gorbals. Shot tournament style, notable nation-wide chefs compete to conquer mystery ingredients and each other, with only one left standing. Esquire Network continues to gain momentum delivering its third consecutive quarter of double-digit growth. Outperforming last season, KNIFE FIGHT season three's performance is +31% among Adults 18-49 and +82% with Total Viewers. Tonight, it's the epic grand finale battle and only two culinary conquistadors remain: the classically trained, Michelin-starred Austrian, Edi Frauneder, and the self taught Peruvian powerhouse, Miguel Aguilar. They've created mind-blowing dishes to get to this point, but only one will go home with the prized 'Lamb Splitter' knife. Mystery ingredients include whole alligator, fennel, duck, toadfish and cough drops.
