Cutthroat Cookoff is a live cooking show presented by High Touch Technologies and Fidelity Bank to benefit Special Olympics KS. This event pairs 5 contestant teams, comprised of a professional chef and Wichita-area leader, challenging them to produce various courses of a meal on the fly with unknown ingredients. The fun kicks off when the audience is drawn upon to sabotage the teams of their liking (or disliking), subjecting them to entertaining challenges meant to trip them up and pile on the pressure. Each round offers potential to test the competitors with goofy ingredients, awkward utensils, penalty-box style time-outs, the infamous dog collar and more! MORE DETAILS HERE!
