Revealing the secrets of the world’s largest and most extreme kitchens

Big Kitchens explores the mindboggling logistics, colossal cuisine, and extraordinary characters behind the world’s biggest, most extreme kitchens and restaurants. Each episode visits a different restaurant to reveal its secret workings – from the world’s biggest truck stop to the US Army’s largest dining area and from a jumbo jet catering facility to the biggest kitchen cruising the oceans.

We find out what makes each kitchen tick – the larger-than-life characters – the cooks and chefs; the bespoke technology behind the cooking; the dazzling logistics involved in seating so many people; the overwhelming volume of ingredients, and the power needed to cook it all. We discover the secrets behind each location’s finest dishes and uncover the facts and stats that keep each extreme restaurant up and running.
