M6 Orders Local Version of Chefs to Go


Endemol France is adapting the cookery format Chefs to Go for M6, marking the first international treatment of the culinary competition series.

Endemol France’s Chefs to Go (local title Chefs à domicile) will pit a leading chef against a new kitchen rival each week as they go head-to-head to create and deliver the best takeaway food in 90 minutes. The chefs have no idea who they are cooking for, so must make their meal based on a series of clues, adapting their dishes along the way.

The format was originally created by Endemol Shine Germany. It first launched on VOX in Germany under the local title Mälzer & Henssler liefern ab! in 2021.

Jean-Louis Blot, CEO of Endemol France, said: “Viewers in France have grown up with cooking shows, and we are excited to unite our audience around their love of food. Chefs to Go adds a fresh twist as it is the beloved and established chefs that are taken out of their comfort zones (and the kitchen). The chefs are outspoken, hilarious and skilled, adding additional spice to the show.”

Lucas Green, global head of content operations at Banijay, said: “With strong culinary competition formats part of Banijay’s DNA, we know Chefs to Go has significant international potential. A fun and playful format, the series celebrates local creativity and talent alongside some good-natured rivalry, within a new sphere: that of the booming takeaway industry.”
