Undercover Chef is the hidden camera format where executive chef and restaurateur Mark Estee helps some of America's most desperate and dysfunctional restaurants by going undercover, exposing their dark secrets, then showing them how to create amazing new food and institute best practices.
Estee's techniques are unconventional. He hides 20 cameras throughout each location, assumes a false identity and infiltrates the restaurants to learn how the staffers operate when they don't know they are being watched.
The series tells transformational food stories, shows shocking moments in restaurants and changes lives. These are stories about people who followed their dreams, opened restaurants and have fallen on hard times. The stakes are high but there is also humour in life's struggles. And there is always hope when a team is willing to persevere.
The host look likes he's only been a line cook for his whole life LMAO, no charisma no character, bland personality, so you know the food is just as bland, everything he made in the first episode is just covered in semi-sweet sauce talk about free diabetes, no innovation no creativity with food, cause I know he ain't consulting for fine dining or modern dining that's a fact. His line cook approach to everything.. calling the host a chef is an insult to real professional chefs.Everything he cooks has been done before literally basic bar food and the problem is other people COOK IT BETTER and the presentation of the food is like someone had vomited on a plate and served it.This is a VERY VERY VERY SAD ATTEMPT at a restaurant make over show, low grade production whats even worst is the food the host makes, anyways 1 episode is enough time wasted for one lifetime, I would tell the host not to quit his day job but literally hes bad at both. the short version: Watch something else.Mediocre low grade chef teaching horrible home cooks who own restaurants more mediocre low grade food that's only slightly better than their home cooking.
