We set out to prove that you’re only as good as your last competition short form at Outback’s Test Kitchen in Tampa, Florida.
Having produced a number of custom vignettes at the training grounds of Outback Steakhouse chefs, we stepped up to the plate for this all-star round. Not only is Food Network raising the stakes with its brand-new series All-Star Academy, we raised ‘em too by transforming the test kitchen into our own dramatically-lit competition stage.
We used a mix of 9-lights, gels, baby plates, triple headers and spot lights to rig a convincing stage for the action to unfold. It’s always a pleasure to work with their seasoned talent and team because we get to turn the heat up in the kitchen and deliver something brand new.
