Kilo Under Pressure
What happens when you give an amateur chef 48 hours, a professional kitchen crew, and the chance to create an original three-course dinner for a restaurant full of guests to love, hate, scrutinize, and everything in between? Kilo Under Pressure.
After a 4-year-hiatus, Under Pressure returned in May 2016, once again offering home cooks, amateur chefs, or budding culinary geniuses the chance to helm a restaurant and bring their gourmet dreams to life. We started with an open call for submissions; daring individuals submitted their applications, and shortlisted candidates faced us in a challenging interview and tasting process.
At the end of it all, seven amateur chefs emerged. Dubbed The Lucky 7, they will each prepare for and serve a dinner menu of three to five courses, with the support of Kilo during the biggest challenge — service night.
