Would You Pay a Stranger For Sushi—Made in a Restroom?

By Rachel Mount Hofstetter

chef wars bannerMy friend Phoebe took off this summer to film some sort of road trip reality show—all she knew when she showed up in L.A. was that it would involve food.

It turned out she’d be competing on a new show called Chef Race. She and a team of American chefs faced off against a team of British chefs, making their way across the country with no credit cards, no cars, no smart phones, and no support system except their cooking skills. That meant getting creative, including turning $30 of ingredients into $700 of sushi using the best space they could find: a restroom.

The show’s a blast—and food-lovers will probably find it inspiring, too. Catch it Tuesdays at 10 on BBC America, and find Team USA’s All-American recipes (like jalapeno deviled eggs and shrimp scampi here).
