Dominica To Feature On BBC America

A project filmed in Dominica last December will be aired tonight on BBC America.

The new original adventure cooking series competition called ‘No Kitchen Required’ covers three chefs as they work with locals to hunt, fish and forage for ingredients to create locally-inspired meals that are judged by the communities.

The three chefs are Michael Psilakis, Madison Cowan and Kayne Raymond.

The trio leaves the comforts of their kitchens as they are dropped into ten locations around the world.

In the first episode of the adrenalin inducing series, the chefs rappel into the lush land of the Caribbean island Dominica.


Equipped with only their knives and secret ingredients of their choice, they are warmly welcomed by host Dr. Shini Somara and the Kalinago community.


Before they can dish up the catch of the day, they must first master spearfishing, track a manicou through the dense RAINFOREST, blindly hunt for crustaceans and forage for tropical fruits and root vegetables like yams.


Combining these ingredients to create a delectable feast for their hosts proves to be a daunting task against the wind and rain on the unpredictable island. The chefs struggle just to keep their fires going, not to mention creating a winning meal before time runs out.

The Dominica episode of BBC AMERICA’s No Kitchen Required premieres Tuesday, April 3, 10:00pm.
