Food Fight! Reality TV Cooks Up a New Formula

This spring brings two highly addictive (and quite similar) international-cooking-competition series: Around the World in 80 Plates (pictured) and No Kitchen Required. Here, the formulas for telling them apart, using shows you already know.

  • Around the World in 80 Plates (Bravo, premieres May 9) = Top Chef (backbiting artistes de cuisine …) + The Amazing Race (hop from country to country …) + Chopped (and cook with preselected local ingredients)

  • No Kitchen Required (BBC America, airing now) = Top Chef (backbiting artistes de cuisine …) + Deadliest Catch (fish and hunt for local ingredients …) + Survivor (and cook meals over a fire pit)

—Laurence Lowe and Rachel Rosenblit
