Bravo is launching another culinary series. Yes, it's a competition show. And yes, it has a cheesy name. According to a press release, it's called Recipe for Deception. The show is described as a "battle of secrets and knives" and the premise is a bit confusing.
In each episode, four new chefs must create a dish featuring a main ingredient, however, they do not know what that ingredient is. So they must ask their fellow competitors three "yes or no" questions to determine their ingredient. Since the show is based off of the game "Two Truths and a Lie," the opponent must answer the questions with two truthful responses and "one outright lie." Comedian and Eater's former Top Chef recapper Max Silvestri — who starred on FYI's show The Feed — will serve as host. There is no information regarding a premiere date yet.
Bravo is no stranger to food shows. The network created the ultra successful Top Chef series which is now entering into its 13th season. The channel is also home to the series Best New Restaurant which follows chef Tom Colicchio as he dines at 16 restaurants across four cities to decide which restaurant is the best.
