Chopped is a cooking competition show that is all about skill, speed and ingenuity. Each week, four chefs compete before a panel of expert judges and turn baskets of mystery ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. Course by course, the chefs will be "chopped" from the competition until only one winner remains. The challenge? They have seconds to plan and 30 minutes to cook an amazing course with the basket of mystery ingredients given to them moments before the clock starts ticking! And the pressure doesn't stop there. Once they've completed their dish, they've got to survive the Chopping Block where our three judges are waiting to be wowed and not shy about voicing their culinary criticisms! Our host, Ted Allen, leads this high-energy, high-pressure show that will have viewers rooting for a winner and cheering for the losers. Chopped is a game of passion, expertise and skill — and in the end, only one chef will survive the Chopping Block. Who will make the cut? The answer is on Chopped!
Chopped is always a gamble, but the Casino Royale tournament takes it to another level. The competitors are given the chance to replace basket ingredients with new ones by the roll of the dice. In this first preliminary battle, something slithery is in the original basket, and a Vegas-themed item in round two isn't a big hit with the chefs. When a chef runs into some bad luck in round three, he doesn't seem phased, but will his bold moves with the ice cream machine result in good flavor? The winner moves on the tournament's finale!
In the second battle of this special Chopped tournament, the chefs get to gamble for a chance to replace a basket ingredient, and the fish offal in the first basket is begging to be gambled away. In round two, all the remaining chefs have a different least-favorite basket ingredient, and more gambling in round three leads to serious drama. The winner of this preliminary battle advances to the finale, where $25,000 -- or more! -- will be at stake.
Roll the dice and change your fate! In this third battle of the Casino Royale tournament, the chefs can gamble to get lucky or unlucky replacement basket ingredients, and the appetizer basket reveals a notoriously challenging ingredient. Will everyone opt to swap it out? In round two, the chefs are second guessing their choices when they have bad luck with an ingredient. Then, the remaining two chefs in the final round decide to take a chance by baking something. The winner of this battle scores a seat in the Casino Royale finale!
In the fourth battle of the Casino Royale tournament, chefs, once again, get to try their luck at replacement basket ingredients, if they dare. When nobody decides to ditch a strange pizza in the appetizer basket, only time will tell if that was a wise move. Before the entree round, a roll of the dice gives one chef two proteins that he must cook, but is there enough time? Then, an interesting gamble and some uncooperative puffed pastry keep things exciting in the final round, and the judges face a difficult decision in selecting the chef who deserves to move on to the finale.
Four winners return to Chopped's Casino Royale, gunning for the jackpot and the title of grand champion! As in the prelim battles, the chefs will have a choice to gamble away an ingredient before each round, and the $25,000 jackpot will get higher or lower depending on the champs' good or bad fortune. The appetizer round is a frenzy of excitement, as the competitors race to raise the bar and deliver the flavor. Nobody wants to swap out the beautiful rack of lamb in the entree basket, but the level of intensity is sky-high as the intoxicating possibility of a finale win sinks in. It all leads up to the final rolls and the final cooking round! Who will leave the casino with a huge jackpot and an even bigger sense of accomplishment?
Looking for love in all the wrong places? Eight single-and-ready-to-mingle chefs are set up with blind dates as their teammates for a quadruple date and culinary showdown all in one! An aquatic aphrodisiac is a fun find in the appetizer basket, and steak in the entree basket takes the date up a notch. Finally, the last two pairs work passionately to create passionfruit and matcha desserts that earn them the $10,000 prize.
A proud legacy of delicious cooking! Four chefs celebrate Black History Month through incredible food. Fish fillets and fish peppers must be combined for the appetizer course, and a hearty soup and a Southern vegetable inspire the chefs in the entree round. Then, when chefs with two unique perspectives make it into the dessert round, they both have a good feeling about the basket, but only time will tell if the ingredients can come together just as they would like.
For the love of chocolate! In this battle, the chefs are blessed with an abundance of the so-called food of the gods. In the first round, the competitors attempt to make duck and chocolate fly. Faux deviled eggs are a sweet trick in the entree basket, and by the time the dessert round is done, it might be natural to ask if there's such a thing as too much chocolate. Not for the winner of this chocolate challenge!
Chomp, chomp, chop! The chefs get alligator in the first basket and race to see who can make it most tender and flavorful. The three competitors who advance to the second round are determined to show their skill and creativity, but the clock threatens to upset their plans. Then, when missteps in the final minutes of the dessert round result in errors, will the judges be disappointed or unfazed by the plates they get?
Golden baskets are packed with the fanciest of ingredients, and the chefs are challenged to rise to the occasion and create upscale meals, worthy of their top-notch components. Caviar potato chips are a posh crunchy surprise in the first basket. High-class sushi and a swanky veggie are two of the grand ingredients the competitors must include in their entrees. Then, as the last two chefs race to make elegant desserts, the clock gives them a run for their money.
Four chefs tackle a takeout takedown in this thrilling battle. The baskets are packed with go-to, to-go choices like pizza in the first round. In the second round, the chefs must make a Chinese specialty work with an Italian cocktail. Then, a tower of something sweet and a cup of something bubbly are part of the puzzle for the dessert round.
What's at the deep end of deliciousness? Deep-fried foods! The competing chefs must make liberal use of the fryers to create crunchy, yummy, decadent dishes. The appetizer basket contains something spicy and a strange soda. The judges are excited for fried fish entrees, but they won't let anyone off the hook for making careless mistakes. Finally, the remaining competitors find an edible enigma in the dessert basket: a treat that is both frozen and deep-fried.
It's viewers' choice time again! The chefs are scared when they find out that the ingredients for their battle were chosen by the fans, via social media. The competitors are trepidatious when they see the alarming sandwich in the first basket. In round two, gummy candies are no big deal compared to a meaty shocker, and a gag-inducing soda and a veggie-licious cake are two of the frightening finds in the dessert basket. Through all this battle's ups and downs, one thing is certain: the winner of the $10,000 will have to work extremely hard for it.
Everybody knows how to stack bacon, lettuce and tomato, but it will take skill and creativity to make a BLT-inspired three-course meal! The chefs find BLT-themed ingredients in every basket and are encouraged to celebrate the classic flavor combination in their dishes. A cheesy-creamy comfort food adds to the challenge in round one. In the entree round, the chefs scramble to make sure their dishes are "bacon-y" enough, and a lettuce-flavored ingredient in the dessert basket has the final two competitors shaking their heads and crossing their fingers that all ends well.
Four competitors set out to make perfect pies in this special competition. In the appetizer round, one chef scrambles to stay on track when a competitor declines to share a coveted pantry ingredient, and an abundance of protein in the entree basket means meat-lovers pies are in order. Finally, when the last two chefs get the chance to create pies for dessert in the third round, will they find sweet success?
In a pickle! Four chefs find themselves eager to show off their pickling talents but with limited time to do so. The competitors must pickle something in every round, and the baskets are packed with pickled goodness as inspiration, like pickle ice cream for the appetizer round. In the second round, the judges encourage the chefs to amp up the pickle flavor. Will they succeed? Finally, an action-packed dessert round features pickled flower blossoms, and the remaining duo work hard to leave a favorable final impression while taking some risks.
Step up to the counter and be amazed! Four delicatessen pros take over the Chopped Kitchen to prove that sandwiches are just the start of their culinary expertise. A platter with a classic combo and a fruit with a cult following are two of the ingredients in the appetizer basket. The chefs get a sweet soda and a stuffed spud to work with in round two, and a clever cold treat must be combined with a salty-sour condiment in the dessert round.
Crunchy or soft, minimalist or filled to the max, it's taco time! The chefs are tasked with making tacos that are worth ten thousand bucks. A beverage is in the first basket, as well as a seafood surprise. Meaty tacos are in the works for the entree round, but can the competitors find a place on their plates for a squirmy shocker? Then, spicy dessert tacos sound delicious in the final round, however, time management issues become a problem after both chefs decide to make tortillas from scratch.
Ooh la la! When the Chopped baskets contain aphrodisiacs, the judges expect the competitors to come through with some sexy dishes. A favorite seductive seafood meets a pun-tastic item in the appetizer basket. In the entree basket, a heart-shaped comfort food and a sweet fruit make for a rare pair. The two competitors who rendezvous in the final round hustle to make sexy desserts with a quirky pie and a spicy root.
The four competitors in this Chopped battle share a common goal: to be the last chef standing! An orange powder provides some colorful inspiration in the first round. A savory cake is not exactly the prized protein the chefs were hoping for in the entree round, but they must make it work. In the final round, the ice cream machine creates drama, and one chef attempts to save their dessert.
Round up the cowboys and cowgirls! Four competitors who love rustic chuck-wagon food are ready to show they have the chops to win. Booze and bell peppers in the appetizer basket get things started as the chefs learn that the pace in the Chopped Kitchen is much speedier than life on the range. The three remaining chefs must hustle to make yummy pork entrees in round two, and in the final round, the judges are on pins and needles waiting to try some prickly pear desserts.
Three legendary Chopped judges are desperately seeking a sous chef, and they've invited 16 ambitious cooks to the Chopped Kitchen to battle for the opportunity of a lifetime. In the first preliminary battle of this five-part event, four hopeful candidates must tackle an appetizer basket that includes some fish-shaped cakes and some plant-based chicken. Major clock concerns make for some dramatic moments. In the entrée round, a flavorful, carb-y snack and an intimidating piece of poultry challenge the chefs. And as the two remaining contenders fight it out for a spot in the finale, they must make desserts using something Sicilian and something gelatinous.
With their sights set on joining a Chopped judge's restaurant empire, four new motivated chefs arrive to give everything they've got to land their dream job. Judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant and Chris Santos will be watching the competitors' every move and tasting every plate to see which candidate deserves a chance to become one of their sous chefs. In the first round, emotions run high as the clock ticks down. Then, in the entree round, the chefs are challenged to break down whole chickens, and with one of Scott's favorite dessert ingredients in the final basket, it would behoove the chefs to do it justice. The winner will advance to the Desperately Seeking Sous Chef finale, where one champion will score the opportunity of a lifetime.
Four more enterprising chefs try to ace the most difficult job interview imaginable and score the chance to work for a Chopped judge. In round one, offal is an awfully shocking surprise, and judge Maneet Chauhan will be watching to see who stumbles and who shines. Then, in the entree round, when a cut of meat proves problematic, can the chefs figure out the best approach in time to get dinner on the table for a potential future boss? And in the dessert round, judge Chris Santos is excited to see what the chefs can do with deep-fried champagne. The winner of this battle moves on to the tournament's finale, where one champion will conquer all to seize the opportunity of a lifetime.
Four chefs are aiming high as they attempt to impress Chopped judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant and Chris Santos, who are desperately looking for sous-chefs, but they won't settle for anything less than the perfect candidate. In this fourth preliminary battle of the tournament, the chefs open the appetizer basket and find a special seafood item that Scott knows very well. In the entree round, the chefs gain some confidence as they work with an Asian street food and a sugary soft drink. In the dessert round, Maneet is eager to see how the chefs use one of her favorite ingredients. If they can balance flavors, they might win her favor. The victorious chef from this battle will move on to the tournament's finale.
Excitement is in the air as four champions return to the Chopped kitchen on a mission to become a sous-chef for a Chopped judge and start a new chapter in their career. Expectations and tensions are high as the candidates open the appetizer baskets and find a fusion pasta and a delicacy from the sea. A specialty of Naples is the curveball ingredient of a difficult entree basket, and, in the dessert round, a stinky fruit and a spicy ice cream are a part of the challenge. After the final elimination, one chef will win the title of Chopped Grand Champion and the opportunity of a lifetime. Judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant and Chris Santos will spell out their respective job offers, and the victorious chef gets to choose which enticing path to take. There has never been a moment like this in Chopped history.
Grilling is living! Four chefs with a talent for live-fire cooking bring their passion to the Chopped kitchen. Beef in the first basket should be a breeze, but nothing is ever easy on Chopped. Second-guessing in the entree round leaves one chef confused about the best plan for the main protein, and the two grilling gurus who advance to the last round must make final plates that include a dough and a fancy fruit.
Small plates, big flavor! The chefs are challenged to take dainty, delicious basket items and churn out petite dishes that don't skimp on taste, presentation or creativity. Tiny sausages and an adorable breakfast item make for a fun and inspiring appetizer basket. There are more miniature surprises in the second basket, but can they add up to mighty main plates? Finally, an unusual berry and a baby vegetable ensure that the small plates in the dessert round will be both daring and darling.
They're hot on social media, but do four online cooking stars have what it takes to compete on Chopped? With scores of fans and followers watching, there's a lot at stake for these competitors, who could be chopped and -- gasp! -- unfollowed. Muscling through the appetizer round proves tough for one competitor, who runs into trouble with the mussels in the basket. In round two, the judges are on the edge of their seats, hoping the cooks' struggles don't sabotage their success. In the dessert round, two social media stars are left to post memories of a lifetime from the Chopped kitchen.
Please, pile on the cheese! The chefs find cheese in every basket and have to make it the star of every plate. They impress the judges with their talent and speed in the appetizer round, raising expectations for the courses to come, and a wild comfort food hybrid proves challenging in round two. The final two chefs take some risks in the dessert round, but will their sweetly cheesy desserts come together in time?
It's Thanksgiving, and class is in session! Four beloved teachers get the chance to compete for the title of Chopped Champion as they share their love of cooking and their heartfelt stories of educating America's children. Digging into the first Turkey Day basket, the teachers find something fried and something shaped like a pumpkin. In the entree round, a thematic loaf of bread seems suitable to gobble, gobble up just as it is, but the teachers must find a creative use for it. In the final round, will a spectacular ingredient inspire the teachers to end the meal with over-the-top desserts?
The baskets are loaded up with ingredients that have the chefs shaking their heads in disbelief. The first basket features a cut of pork definitely not available at the local supermarket, plus a doughnut that, not surprisingly, isn't glazed. A bizarre incident at the end of the appetizer round leaves one of the competitors rushing to finish. The chefs must contend with a wild stew and a savory cake in the entree round, and in the dessert round, a new take on a protein shake and a special candy are part of the final bizarre basket puzzle.
In addition to the three mandatory ingredients in each basket, the competing chefs have to share a colossal fourth ingredient in every round. It's a shockingly big surprise that takes some getting used to, and in the first round, one competitor feels the pressure and their emotions get the better of them. In the entree round, the giant fourth ingredient is an Italian-American classic. In the dessert round, everyone is in awe of the huge sweet, shared surprise, but will the chefs' final dishes leave a big impression on the judges?
It's the most wonderful time of the year with the most wonderful cooks in the kitchen! Four talented grandmothers are put in charge of making a remarkable holiday feast with love in every bite. The grandmas open the first basket to find a wreath made of something sweet, and everyone is excited to get cooking, but nerves lead to some mistakes and scrambling. A classic holiday beverage is a festive surprise in the entree basket, and the judges are in for a treat when two determined grandmas are left duking it out in the dessert round.
Nothing's better than noodles! Four chefs who specialize in all things noodles compete in a delicious battle to see who can take a food that's loved the whole world over and make it out of this world. In the first round, a spicy surprise in the basket means the chefs' noodle appetizers might come with a kick. Something canned and something freeze-dried challenges the chefs in the entrée round, and an extra special coffee makes an appearance in the dessert round.
