The 13-episode series, which is currently in production, will feature four chefs competing in three cooking challenges in a grocery store, as they navigate their way through the aisles adhering to a number of "real-world" culinary challenges to create tasty dishes.

"From shopping on a budget to substituting ingredients when the essentials are out-of-stock to cooking a complicated dish with five items or less, the chefs' culinary and improvisation skills are put to the test," the network said of the upcoming series. "In the end, the food does the talking, and one-by-one the losing chefs are eliminated by a rotating list of guest judges."

"Guy's energy, popularity and expertise make him the complete package as a host," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "Viewers will love watching these clever chefs compete in a high energy battle of wits, creativity and skill and will never look at their grocery store in quite the same way."
