It Doesn’t Get More Authentic Than a Concrete Made in a Cement Mixer — Testing the Cutthroat Kitchen Sabotages

by in Shows, March 6th, 2016

On tonight’s new episode of Cutthroat Kitchen, the name of the game in Round 3 was concrete, both literally and figuratively. Not only were chefs tasked with prepping this frozen concoction, but a doozy of a sabotage mandated that one chef had to make the dessert in — what else? — a cement mixer. Such a challenge was new for competitors and the Cutthroat culinary crew alike, so the team behind the scenes attempted the sabotage before host Alton Brown could sell it at auction.

Cutthroat Kitchen food stylist Abel Gonzalez took control of this latest test, pouring the essentials for classic custard — eggs, sugar and cream — into the deep, wide-mouthed mixing machine. “So I have to say, this is looking great,” Abel admitted after using the machine and his own whisk to thoroughly blend the ingredients. “I have a custard base here.”

stuffed plantainContestants were expected to serve up a sweet-and-savory breakfast in Round 1 of this week’s Guy’s Grocery Games, and there were some interesting combinations. (Banana split for breakfast, anyone?) But what truly caught our eye was a plantain hash that instantly reminded us of a very real and traditional sweet-and-savory South American dish called Plátanos Asados con Bocadillo y Queso — which is baked plantains stuffed with cheese and guava paste, and it’s delicious.

by in Shows, February 28th, 2016

It’s not every day that famed producer, director and actor William Shatner drops by on Cutthroat Kitchen, so when he does, it’s no surprise that special attention must be paid. The guest joined the judges’ panel tonight for a brand-new man-cave-themed episode, and as the “manliest of all men,” he was well-equipped to critique chefs’ dishes of bacon, burgers and booze. Come the After-Show, host Alton Brown showed off some of the day’s challenges — and even let Shatner shoot a bit of pool on set — but the real surprise for the judge came not from a sabotage but from Cutthroat Kitchen culinary team member Chelsey.

Buying one of these one-trick-pony gadgets certainly seems like a risky purchase. (Plus, you’re forever left with those weird little veggie plugs — you know what I’m talking about!)
