Alton’s Dream Cutthroat Kitchen Sabotages Revealed

by in Food Network Chef, Shows, January 29th, 2014

Alton's Dream Cutthroat Kitchen Sabotages RevealedLet’s set the scene: utensils made from aluminum, no salt, missing ingredients and an evilicious grin to top it off. These are all the ingredients that make up Cutthroat Kitchen. Every Sunday night, Alton dishes out sabotages that can trip up even the best of chefs — but here’s the kicker: Alton truly enjoys watching the chefs distribute and overcome the obstacles that are thrown at them.

“I love seeing people play the game, so anything that accentuates that, I’m a fan of. I grew up loving game shows,” Alton recently told FN Dish on the set of his show. “The auctioning segments are my favorite part — I enjoy the strategies used by the chefs,” he continued saying.

So what’s Alton’s dream sabotage? “When it comes to the sabotages, I can envision episodes that take place off set, like outside challenges. Though I don’t necessarily think that bigger is always better,” Alton said. “For instance, I would love to do a show where the sabotages aren’t decided until after the chefs have shopped. Where we’re changing the game as the game goes along. Or another idea I like would be to give them more options: Which would you rather face? Why not give them the opportunity to choose the paths that they would take, like on an obstacle course?”

    I love this show. I think it's hilarious. It would be so fun to be on this show. We're going to do our own version of Cutthroat kitchen at our Christmas party.

    Every episode you say shopping time is 60 seconds but here's the thing when most people shop the items cost money so how about I win this sabotage and if I make it to the next round every item every one else shops for costs them money.

    I don't know if this has been suggested or not, but there is a guy at my church, who when he was young and stupid, went to prison for a year. While there he got to work in the kitchen, where the various tools that could be used as a weapon, was bungee corded to a wall, so that the inmate could not walk off with it. What if, you bungee corded various cooking vessels and implements to a wall, and made sure there was enough tension so the chef had to fight against the pull of the cord every second of the round.

    For an Asian dish challenge, the only utensils they can use to prepare and cook food would be chopsticks

    We suggest an allergen free pizza sabotage. Take away gluten, dairy and egg ingredients and give them allergen free substitute ingredients. Like for gluten you have chicken for dairy you can't have any and for egg you have fake egg.
