We might be biased when it comes to our own, but a fresh cooking series, The Chefs' Line airing weeknights at 6pm on SBS. Fresh in delivery, fresh in concept and fresh in tantalising execution, let's celebrate Australia’s diverse food culture by battling it out over hot stoves and racing clocks as well as bringing together cooks and chefs from around the country to showcase their love of food.

It's going to be the ultimate food fight as home cooks will try and out cook an entire chefs’ line (did we hear you say what is a chefs' line, anyway? Find out right here) in the hopes that their passion will prevail over profession.

Each night home cooks try to cook their way up the ranks, one chef at a time so you can expect serious skills, fabulous flavour combos, cuisine classics and some genius cooking tips along the way.

Each week, The Chefs’ Line will celebrate a different cuisine, a new chefs’ line will represent their restaurant and go up against four new home cooks. And where would a cooking competition be without its judges? Well, you're in luck with this glorious panel of food experts - Dan Hong, Mark Olive, Melissa Leong and Maeve O'Mearameet the team right here!

Did someone say, kitchen sink battle? We sure did!
