You Can Control This Live Competitive Cooking Series From Home

I’ve often found myself shouting at the screen when watching a competitive cooking show, hoping that by sheer force of will the contestant will heed my advice. Futile, yes, but a practice I’ve been unable to shake for the better part of a decade. For anyone and everyone who have felt that frustration, there’s a new competitive cooking series that will quell that rage.

Foodbeast is introducing it’s all new Kitchen League, a live-cooking competition that airs exclusively on Foodbeast Twitch.

Watch FOODBEAST KITCHEN LEAGUE: INSTANT RAMEN w/ @BookofElie and @Outhereflourishing from foodbeast on www.twitch.tv

Here’s how it works:

Two chefs will be given a theme each week that they will have to base their dishes up0n. They will then have 30 minutes to cook a winning dish. During that time, however, Twitch viewers will have the chance to donate BITS to throw a wrench in their segment. For example, for 150 bits, the chef would not be allowed to use a knife for a minute. For 1,000 bits, the chef has to turn off the heat on their stove for a minute. So you can imagine the hijinks that will ensue once those and other sabotage from BIT donations come into play.

Once the time limit is reached, chefs will be judged by a guest host as well as the Twitch audience.

During our live Beta Test, Foodbeast Elie Ayrouth went up against Constantine Spyrou, and the two had to come up with a creative dish based on an instant noodle theme. You can check out how it all went down in the video above.

This Thursday will kick off the inaugural Foodbeast Kitchen League and feature Chef Saengthong Douangdara go up against professional eater and entertainer Raina Huang. The theme: Spicy.

Check out the livestream this Thursday Aug. 8 at 11am PST at Twitch.tv/FOODBEAST. There will also be Foodbeast Kitchen League streams every Thursday during the month of August leading up to Foodbeast’s Nood Beach, taking place on Sunday Sept. 1.
