Farmers Market Flip (Cooking Channel) – Premieres 20th April
A cooking equivalent of Swap Meet Showdown, where two teams go up against each other at a farmers market in the chance to win $5k between them.
The show is set over two rounds, the first has them creating a dish using the produce of one of the market owners, where the winner is given the second round advantage of having the host help work on food prep for 10 minutes.
In the second round the teams are given 20 minutes to purchase their ingredients to be used to make 100 covers for the crowd who then vote on who wins $5k.
It’s a pretty cheap and cheerful show which doesn’t rely on the need to create needless drama from the chefs doing a small mistake. That said it’s not really something you’d go out of your way to watch either.
