Cutthroat Kitchen Season 2 Episode 09

‘Cutthroat Kitchen’ show plans to feature Murfreesboro caterer

Jade Humphries-Graves, owner of Savoy Events Catering, will be one of the featured chefs on one of Food Network’s most popular reality shows, according to a news release.

Humphries-Graves will appear on tonight’s episode of “Cutthroat Kitchen,” which airs at 9 Central, the news release stated.

Though is not at liberty to talk about the show until the episode airs, the business owner said in the release, “It was an experience of a lifetime.”

Hosted by celebrity chef Alton Brown, “Cutthroat Kitchen” is part cooking competition and part game show. Contestants are given $25,000 to bid on various ways to sabotage their opponents culinary creations in hopes to be the last chef standing and win whatever money that is left at the end.

“Sabotage, thievery and insanity … great ingredients for fun,” Humphries-Graves said, joking.

She was contacted last summerby a casting company for the ABC show “The Taste.” Though she made it through the local Nashville casting and several casting interviews, Humphries-Graves did not appear on the show according to the release.

A few months later, the same casting company reached out about appearing on “Cutthroat Kitchen.” At that point, the show had not had its premiere, and she took the opportunity without ever seeing the show.

Humphries-Graves began catering while living in Denver, Colo., and uses her love for cooking as a way to “de-stress” after long days in corporate America, according to the release.

Humphries-Graves and her husband, Ted, launched Savoy Events Catering 10 years ago, serving Nashville and the surrounding areas.

“We started as a parttime, home-based business. We are now at the point where we are working on plans to buy a site to hold events with a full catering kitchen,” Humphries-Graves said in the release. “We work with many clients who are seeking out venues which will allow them to bring in their own caterers.”

She is also in the midst of creating a cookbook for working women and her launching a local cooking competition, the release stated.
