Chopped Season Notes
Ted Allen hosts the new five-part tournament Chopped: Playing with Fire, premiering Tuesday, August 10th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network.
Sixteen up-and-coming stars compete to show what hot ideas, techniques, and flavors they bring to the table. During a preliminary battle, the competitors must use wild game in every basket; in the appetizer round, a Korean snack is a crispy, creepy-crawly shocker. The judges wonder what to expect when they chomp down on alligator entrées, and in the dessert round, the two chefs left fighting for a spot in the finale wrestle with a basket that includes some wild sandwiches and a daring dairy. Other episodes feature the chefs making flame-kissed dishes that celebrate the treasures of both land and sea, as they are tasked with using a strange sushi in the appetizer basket that requires raw talent to deal with; and four chefs are ready to take the judges to hog heaven using a prized piece of pork in their entrée basket. The winners from the four preliminary heats meet in the finale with their sights set on taking the tournament title of Chopped Champion. The appetizer basket has the chefs working with a meat you can't find at the grocery store, while a bucket of something frozen is part of the entrée round puzzle. The two remaining finalists who make it to the dessert round endeavor to give it their all with corn on the cob and a weird cheesecake.
