Genre: Reality, Cooking
Premise: Four chefs call on their culinary skills as they face off against one another to prepare a spectacular three-course meal consisting of an appetizer, entree and dessert. The catch? In each round, they have to use all the ingredients the show provides them, however unlikely they might be (Gummi Bears, anyone?). At the end of each course, a panel of three guest judges ``chops'' one chef who fails to measure up in terms of taste, presentation and creativity. The last chef standing takes home bragging rights and a cool $10,000. Ted Allen hosts.
The chefs must make noodle or pasta dishes; Asian ingredients in round one; fresh pasta in round two; noodles for dessert in the final round.
The chefs take on football-themed challenges; reinvented mac and cheese for the appetizer round; artichokes in the entree round; a stadium starch in the dessert basket.
