Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Jeff Mauro, KITCHEN CRASH is a one-hour culinary competition series that features professional chefs heading to a local neighborhood block for an outdoor cook-off. With only 10 minutes on the clock, each chef must convince a local homeowner on the cul-de-sac to hand over ingredients from their kitchens and pantries, with the caveat that the competing chefs can only use the items that the homeowners can fit into one bin. With no additional pantry items and no option to restock, the chefs must ration what they are given for the entire competition. Making the competition even tougher, the chefs must cook curbside as their skills are tested in challenges from Tex-Mex meals, to festival fare, to meat lover's breakfasts, and more, while the neighborhood watches. Mauro along with one special guest judge -- including Matt Abdoo, Leah Cohen, Eddie Jackson, Nilou Motamed, Christian Petroni, and Marcus Samuelsson -- decide who crushed the competition. In the end, one winning chef split a $10,000 cash prize with the lucky host family who provided the ingredients.

In the series opener, "Getting Stuffed in Jersey," Jeff brings three chefs to Paramus, N.J., to ambush homeowners in search of food from their kitchens. With those ingredients, the competitors are challenged to serve Jeff and judge Christian Petroni festival-style food, something "stuffed" and street-fair dishes. In the end, one winning chef splits a cash prize with their lucky host family.
