Each episode of the show features four chefs gathering ingredients in a grocery store to cook a dish assigned by host Guy Fieri while he presents obstacles and challenges. The winner competes in a bonus round where they can win up to $20,000.

The scheduled air date has not been announced yet.

Executive chef Travis Peters from southern fusion restaurant The Parish competed on an episode of Guy’s Grocery Games, which aired earlier this year. He ended up winning.
