Now Streaming: Blind Kitchen Orlando

At Oxenfree, we get really excited about any opportunity to showcase Orlando’s local culture and the people who contribute to our vibrant food, sports, and arts scenes.

Over the past year, we’ve worked with Very Local to produce Blind Kitchen Orlando, an 8-episode food competition series celebrating local chefs and putting their skills to the test. The first episode of the series begins streaming today on the Very Local app!

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate something we're really passionate about–the culinary scene in Orlando (which was recently featured in People Magazine as the Best Foodie City in America).

It has been an honor to produce a show that shines a spotlight on the city’s top chefs and culinary artists who embody the local culture of Orlando.



Blind Kitchen Orlando is a unique food competition series that features 16 Orlando chefs as they participate in a culinary battle of the senses.

In each episode, two local chefs go head-to-head to recreate each other's signature dish. The twist? Both chefs are blindfolded as they experience the opposing chef’s dish.

With no visual cues, chefs rely solely on their sense of taste, touch, and smell as they attempt to recreate what they believe is their opponent’s dish.

The series features renowned chefs from Orlando’s favorite eateries, including Bruno Zacchini of Pizza Bruno, Trina Gregory-Propst of Se7en Bites, Alexia Gawlak of Swine & Sons, John Collazo of Bad As’s Sandwiches, Pom Moonguaklang of Pom Pom’s Teahouse & Sandwicheria, and more.

The show is hosted by Emily Ellyn, a culinary educator and personality you may recognize from Food Network’s “Food Network Star,” and “Cupcake Wars,” or HGTV’s “Cutthroat Kitchen."

Joining Emily in each episode of Blind Kitchen Orlando is a lineup of local guest judges, including Anthony ‘Biggie’ Bencomo of Deli Fresh Threads, Andi Perez of Yelp Orlando, Brendan O’Connor of Bungalower, and more.


Blind Kitchen Orlando is available exclusively on the Very Local app.
