Guy Fieri and his son Hunter are tired of people making resolutions to give up all the food they enjoy. So they declare Flavortown Market a resolution-free zone and, for the first time, invite home cooks — not chefs — to make the real-deal comfort dishes people crave. First, Guy makes the cooks pick a canned ingredient they have to incorporate into their no-restriction noodles. Then, Guy and Hunter let the competitors fulfill their fried fantasy while also fulfilling the demands of the Food Pyramid. After winning $10,000, the top-scoring cook resolves to return to Flavortown soon and hopefully win even more!
In each episode of Guy’s Grocery Games, four talented chefs compete in a number of challenges as they navigate their way through the aisles of a grocery store, adhering to “real-world” obstacles. Whether it is shopping on a budget, substituting out-of-stock ingredients or grabbing groceries at closing time, each chef has to shop, prepare, and plate three different dishes using whatever they can pull off the shelves. Ultimately, the food does the talking, as one-by-one the losing chefs “check out,” by a rotating panel of judges that includes Melissa d’Arabian, Richard Blais, G. Garvin, Troy Johnson, Catherine McCord, Aarti Sequeira, among others. The last chef standing goes on a shopping spree of a lifetime worth up to $20,000!
