Eat and Drink Like Royalty!
Have you ever watched competitive cooking shows on television such as Iron Chef, Top Chef, Chopped, or MasterChef and wished you could be the judge and taste the food? Welcome to Rival, an interactive culinary extravaganza.
A team of food and entertainment pros has transformed TV cooking competitions into a one-of-a-kind experience – it’s a major twist on fine dining as we know it.
Rival brings together two accomplished chefs at a time, whether local favorites or international celebrities, to create a side-by-side, multi-course tasting menu for you to savor. Vote for your favorites on our app based on presentation, creativity, and taste.
The guest chefs will adapt to on-the-spot challenges, and our Master of Ceremonies will narrate the competition. The drama unfolds as the clock ticks toward zero.
Overheard video cameras feed close-ups and behind the scenes footage to monitors around the arena. The app allows you to change the camera angles to follow the action that interests you most. You may even join our chefs center stage to help prepare a dish or serve diner.
Your favorite cooking show has been upgraded to a live event, and this Kickstarter project is the way we’re offering early access. Help bring Rival to life and come enjoy the gastronomical experience of a lifetime.
