Acclaimed chefs Chris Cosentino and Aaron Sanchez are pitted against two local foodies in a winner-takes-all race through a different city each week, through the most fascinating, unusual food locations. Each team begins with a clue leading them to their first food challenge. Challenges could include everything from wine stomping to the eating the spiciest chili west of the Mississippi to diving for sea urchins! The five challenges take the chefs and foodies on an adrenaline-charged, food-lovers tour of each city, and once complete, its a sprint to the finish line to see if the locals can protect their home turf or if the Food Network chefs can conquer a new city.
Runtime: 60 minutes

In December 2014, he opened Cockscomb, a restaurant centered around his updated interpretations of classic San Francisco dishes.
