Chef & My Fridge often spells out its premise at the beginning of the episodes: “The project that turns your leftovers into an amazing dish! The best chefs in Korea will take care of your fridge!” Each episode brings in two celebrity guests (or duos) and their fridges, which are literally pulled out of their homes (sometimes with a crane!) and displayed in the studio. The chefs, most of whom run one or more trendy restaurants around Seoul, are tasked with making dishes for the guests out of the contents of their fridges, using their pro skills to spin instant noodles into culinary gold. Oh yeah, and they each only get 15 minutes to cook.
