U.S. broadcaster ABC is to premiere Time Machine Chefs, a competition series that challenges four popular chefs to create impressive dishes without using modern appliances, amenities, running water or electricity, on August 16.

Produced by Breakfast Anytime, the series stars chefs Art Smith, Chris Cosentino, Ilan Hall and Jill Davie, who must use basic kitchen equipment, their imaginations, and craftsmanship, in hopes of being named “The Greatest Chef in History.”

Smith has appeared on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters and Food Network’s Iron Chef America, and also served as Oprah Winfrey’s personal chef for 10 years.

Hall is the winner of season two of Bravo’s Top Chef, while Davie was the winner of Food Network’s Hot Chefs: South Beach in 2006, and appeared on The Next Iron Chef in 2007. Cosentino co-owns a restaurant in San Francisco and launched his first cookbook this year.

Their culinary creations will be judged by chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Nancy Silverton; Dave Arnold of the French Culinary Institute in New York City; and chef and cookbook author Silvena Rowe of Quince in London’s May Fair Hotel.

Rick Hurvitz and Ari Shofet are the executive producers of Time Machine Chefs.
