Plot Synopsis

In each half-hour episode of RECIPE FOR DISASTER, three professional chefs and their cooking buddies compete to prepare spectacular dishes under absurdly adverse conditions. The studio transforms into a bizarre new world each week, replete with themed disasters that challenge the chefs in ways they never imagined. They will attempt the perfect sear while stuck on a "sinking cruise ship" during a tropical storm, try their hand at risotto while bouncing in baby jumpers, or create earth-shattering gnocchi with nothing but a chisel and rock hammer while dining with dinosaurs. To make matters worse, their cooking buddies are people from their lives who are total kitchen novices. Who will impress the judges, and whose dishes will succumb to the ridiculous disasters du jour? Ultimately, host Ann Pornel and culinary experts Eden Grinshpan and Chef Shahir Massoud judge their sky high creations and crown only team as the Masters of Disaster.
