Chopping Block premiered on NBC on March 11, 2009. 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 on NBC - 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.
