Travel the world through your tastebuds and put your culinary skills to the test with this mission packed full of challenges, games, and delicious food! During the week you’ll learn how to make signature dishes from different countries around the world, moving from Japan to Ethiopia, Lebanon to Italy, with a pitstop in Spain. Each day you’ll discover new ingredients, new recipes and new cooking methods. As you get to grips with the origins of different foods, you’ll experiment with herbs, fruits and plants to give your creations a fresh twist. You’ll have the opportunity to compete in daily challenges and find out who will go home with the winning prize, and who’ll end up with the wooden spoon! Learn how to make sushi, cook injera over the fire, and whip up a batch of gnocchi, and for something a bit sweeter try your hand at making Spanish churros and real Italian tiramisu.
Can you impress the judges with your speedy cooking? How inventive can you get with your ingredients? Have you got what it takes to be crowned Top Chef? It all hangs on a knife edge as you learn how to cook up a storm and compete with your fellow rivals…with delicious results!
Knife Edge uses the same recipes as The IncrEdibles mission, but we’ve turned up the heat to offer the more experienced chefs among you the opportunity to take it to the next level.
