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...from a jumbo jet catering facility, to the biggest kitchen cruising on the open ocean. We visit these monster kitchens on one of the busiest days in their calendar when they cook their biggest banquets.

We explore the airline kitchen that churns out 170,000 in-flight meals each day, the crab house serving a dish every 15 seconds to 700 diners a night, the cruise ship kitchen that goes through 140 tons of food supplies per week, the pizza restaurant serving 62 inch pizzas and many more…

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 their finest dishes and uncover the facts and stats that keep each extreme restaurant running.

Ep 5: Monster Mardis Gras Mansion

In New Orleans, it’s Mardi Gras. Over one million people flood to the city to party but they also want to eat! Commander’s Palace, one of the oldest and most iconic restaurants in America is pushed to the limit.

Ep 3: Planet Pizza

In San Antonio, just a few miles from The Alamo, Big Lou’s pizza and pasta restaurant proves everything really is bigger in Texas. Serving burgers fifteen times bigger than a Big Mac and a pizza five feet wide, demand for their super-sized food is just as BIG.

Ep 1: Supersize Surf n Turf

This episode explores one of America’s biggest surf ‘n turf restaurants. Just north of Chicago, the heat is on at one of America’s biggest and busiest steak and seafood joints. Bob Chinn’s Crab House cooks up 900 king crabs and 1500 steaks every week, feeding over 12,000 guests.
