Chefs try 'extreme' culinary competition
By Lynn Hoppes
Ben Sargent and Marsh Mokhtari are part of the new Food Network show "Extreme Chef."
Starting tonight, Food Network will broadcast a competition show about seven chefs dropped into amazing locations for the second season of "Extreme Chef." The chefs' goal is to create tasty dishes in adverse conditions.
"This is ultimately an entertainment show," said host Marsh Mokhtari, who played American football for the United Kingdom National Team and rugby for the Newcastle Falcons. "We're putting the most ridiculous obstacles imagineable in front of these chefs and seeing if the cream truly does rise to the top."
