The Chef Who Wins In Vegas, Stays in Vegas

Chefs try to knock out their competition and earn a job at a prestigious Las Vegas restaurant on Food Network’s “Vegas Chef Prizefight.” The show, hosted by Food Network star Anne Burrell, premieres March 5 and airs Thursdays at 10/9C.  Caesars Entertainment executives will judge the chefs along with special guest judges throughout the show.

Savor The Win

Eight elite chefs will take on the toughest job interview of their lives for a chance to be named head chef at the new $10 million restaurant Bugsy & Meyer's Steakhouse at the Flamingo Las Vegas.

Each week on Vegas Chef Prizefight, host Anne Burrell puts the chefs through their paces at a different restaurant within the Caesars Entertainment empire where they must take over a busy dinner service to prove they have the talent to run a high-profile restaurant in Las Vegas.

The chefs competing are: Brittney Brown (Detroit, Michigan); Jeffrey Compton (Auburn, Alabama); Julia Helton (Chicago, Illinois); Jeff Kraus (Tempe, Arizona); Janey Lyu (New York, New York); Lamar Moore (Chicago, Illinois); Roshara Sanders (Bridgeport, Connecticut) and Juan Zepeda (Denver, Colorado).

The six-episode series mirrors real-life entry into the world of first-class restaurant kitchens. Restaurant experts Scott Conant and Regional President of Caesars Entertainment Eileen Moore, along with other special guests, join Anne to determine who moves closer to getting a job offer.

Episode Guide

In the premiere episode, Anne and the chefs arrive at Caesars Test Kitchen and must show their culinary point of view using an ingredient beloved by high rollers and vacationers alike.

They then proceed to an evening takeover of BLT Steak at Bally’s Las Vegas where the chefs are inspired by BLT’s famous tuna tartare, popovers and porterhouse for two.

Upcoming episodes include a Mexican-inspired dinner at Guy Fieri’s restaurant El Burro Borracho at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino featuring Hunter Fieri. Chefs will be inspired by Fieri’s Trash Can Nachos and churros.

Next, enjoy a theater-worthy food spectacle with guests Penn Jillette, Maximillian Chow and Chef Dicky Fung at MR CHOW at Caesars Palace where the chefs are inspired by Beijing duck and MR CHOW noodles.

You’ll want to tune in for a brunch battle at GIADA at The Cromwell Las Vegas with Giada De Laurentiis’s head of culinary operations Lish Steiling. Chefs will be inspired by the famous lemon spaghetti.

The show wraps up with a fine dining excursion at Michelin-starred Restaurant Guy Savoy with dishes like Colors of Caviar and artichoke and black truffle soup. In the 90-minute finale on Thursday, April 9 at 10 p.m., the last chefs standing go head-to-head and only one is offered the head chef position at Flamingo Las Vegas.
