Competitors will cook dishes typically associated with brunch, but they will also seek to âredefine the genreâ.
Levy discussed some of his motivations for joining the show, which he will also produce, in a statement.
âEveryone has a friend, family member or colleague who is extraordinary at what they do, they just need a helping hand so that their talents can be appreciated on a larger scale,â said he declared.
âThrough an almost obsessive love of food, I was lucky enough to meet many of these people in the culinary world – friends working in cafes or food trucks, revolutionizing the menus of local restaurants – these special humans who create communities around their kitchen, hoping to take their skills to the next level.
âI created this show for them, the local culinary heroes of America who deserve a spotlight. That, and who doesn’t want to see maple syrup slowly poured over a golden pile of French toast inspired by creme brulee to perfection? ”
