FYI has greenlit six one-hour episodes of new culinary series Midnight Feast and has ordered two hour-long pilots, Say It To My Face and Reverse Course. Set at New York’s Chelsea Market, Midnight Feast is hosted by chef, restaurateur and TV personality Spike Mendelsohn. Each episode will feature three chefs who are given free rein to use any ingredient found in the famous food hall to execute judged dishes. By the end of the night, the winner walks away with a cash prize – while the losers walk away paying their own tabs. Say It To My Face gives chefs and restaurant owners a chance to defend themselves before their toughest online critics, and Reverse Course follows chef and restaurateur Sam Talbot as he takes the farm-to-table concept to the extreme and tells the story of food in reverse, It begins with the final meal and works backwards, from the meal being served, to the preparation and cooking.
