DVR Alert: 'Chefs vs. City' Tears Up San Francisco Tonight
We admit it. With so many food shows taping in these parts lately, we've relegated Chefs vs. City to the inner chip recesses of the DVR machine, back where Jamie at Home mingles with old eps of Breaking Bad.
Food Network Come on -- you've watched trashier TV before.
Tonight's installment takes place in the city - like, our city. Incanto chef Chris Cosentino and New York chef Aaron Sanchez do their (never seen it, so we're flying without lessons here) Amazing-Race-meets-Smackdown-with-Bobby-Flay thing up and down the streets of S.F., competing with two locals in a series of food-themed battles. Here's Food Network's official, typo-scarred description:
Chefs Aaron Sanchez and Chris Cosentino explore Chris' hometown of San Franciso [sic] and take on two local chefs: Anna Wankel and Melissa Perello. In five Bay Area food challenges, the teams endure a bread fight at the famous Boudin Bakery, eat one of cities [sic] spiciest dishes and build a massive meat puzzle at the California Culinary Academy. All bets are off as the teams discover San Francisco dining in a new and unexpected way.
Set your DVRs -- we know you ain't rushing home from the beer gardens of Lucky 13 or the Pilsner Inn at 10 p.m. to watch this one live. Or, um, if you do? Don't tell.
