07/22/2014 (08:00PM - 09:00PM) (Tuesday) : WORLD CLASS CHEF LORENA GARCIA GUEST STARS -- It's the perfect recipe for the ultimate food battle when the best amateur cooks in America put their signature dishes to the test against five professional chefs in this high-stakes culinary game. Armed only with their treasured family recipes, they'll square off against an expert chef who will have to cook the same dish. The completed dishes will then be sampled in a blind taste test by culinary judges known as "The Dinner Party." If the home cook wins, they earn a cash prize. Even if they don't win, they still get to face off again against another culinary expert, climbing a money ladder with increasing cash prizes for every professional chef they knock out. This week, a married mother of three tries to win up to $100,000 as she faces off one by one against five culinary pros, including acclaimed celebrity chef Lorena Garcia. Television personality, author and food enthusiast Adam Richman ("Man Vs. Food," "Fandemonium") is the host of this series that takes culinary sparring to an exciting new level.

(from Electus' press release, January 2015) Food Fighters has been renewed by NBC for a second season. Hosted by Adam Richman, the culinary battle - which pits amateur cooks against professional chefs - will return in the summer of 2015. Additionally, Electus International handles the international rollout of Food Fighters and has concluded deals in many of the world's major markets. The series generated strong viewer interest in its first season last summer, delivering the biggest regularly scheduled week-one to week-two gain in adult 18-49 rating for any new series on the Big 4 networks in more than two years. The series offers the ultimate culinary clash, as amateur cooks go head-to-head against five professional chefs who try to cook each contestant's best "family recipe" better than the contestant does. The dishes are tasted and judged by "the dinner party," a group of everyday food enthusiasts who taste both creations in a blind taste test. As the contestants advance, the cash prize grows, as does the incentive to out-cook the professional.
