About the show
The Chopping Block is an American reality television series, based on the Australian reality television series of the same name. The series aired on the NBC network and followed participants in an attempt to open a restaurant. It is hosted by British celebrity chef Marco Pierre White.
It's not just about the meal, it's about the business of food. From the producers of Hell's Kitchen, original rock-star chef Marco Pierre White comes to America to host the ultimate food fight - a new competition set in the high-drama, high-stakes world of New York City restaurants.
The cooks are given a grilling over the course of the series. The teams, which are made up of couples, will be tested in challenges that vary from having less than a week to design and revamp a restaurant space to planning a menu and creating a signature dish. The winning couple will get a chance to have their dreams come true - opening their very own restaurant.
