Passion and expertise rule the kitchen on the fast-paced new series, Chopped. Hosted by Ted Allen (Iron Chef America and Queer Eye For The Straight Guy), the series challenges four up-and-coming chefs to turn a selection of everyday ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal.
The chefs go head-to-head bringing only their knives and knowledge to the cooking stations where they unpack their baskets of mystery ingredients and try to create a dish on the fly. The baskets are filled with unexpected products and change with every course: avocadoes for dessert, bananas for appetizers, frozen pie crust for the entrée. Whatever the ingredients, the chefs must incorporate the selected mystery items into each upcoming round. With only seconds to think up their creation, the chefs race against the clock and each other to create a round-winning dish. But that’s only half the pressure.
Once they’ve completed their dish, they’ve got to survive the Chopping Block! Each week, a rotating panel of culinary elite judges will decide whose dishes shine the brightest and award the winner $10,000. Chopped is a game of passion, expertise and skill – and in the end, only one chef will survive. Who will make the cut and who will get the chop?... Read more.
