Created by David Barbour and Julian Cress of The Block, Celebrity Overhaul and Celebrity Circus fame, The Chopping Block will be filmed in both Sydney and Melbourne, where two local restaurants will compete, not only to impress the food critic, but to take home a cash prize of $20,000.
Hosted by Getaway's Catriona Rowntree and top chef Matt Moran. Each week two different restaurants will receive a review by a top-secret critic, and then, with a budget of $5,000 and assistance from Matt Moran, they will be given 72 hours to overhaul everything form their menu, service and décor in an effort to win over the critic and take home the cash prize.
As their business is scrutinised, how will everyone handle the brutally honest reviews? And the pressure will be on when they open on the final night, because somewhere in the crowd, will be the food critic, writing his final review. Cameras will capture all the behind-the-scenes drama as it unfolds. One single mistake could be their undoing. (Source: Nine)
