Season 36 / Episode 8 and airs on 31 January 2018 03:00
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!
In the appetizer round, the chefs try to make meaty appetizers; the chefs get to choose which part of an animal to use for their second dishes; the final chefs make piggy desserts.
A familiar can and a space-age beverage in the first basket; something frozen in time and something nostalgically spherical for round two; a drink named for a movie legend must be used for dessert.
Making canned ham tasty and cleaning mussels are a couple of the challenges in round one. In the entree round, some of the chefs attempt to creatively mask the bright blue color of one of the basket ingredients. Then, will the final two chefs' fruit-and-fries creations please the judges?
Les Gold, Claudia Jordan, Jenni Pulos and Karina Smirnoff compete; the celebrities must use an edible wreath and festively-shaped bread; the judges learn that one of the competitors has never tried one of the veggies found in the basket.
The chefs show off their takes on the taco; tripe and mustard rabe in the appetizer basket; Asian sauce and a beautiful protein in the entree basket; the finalists create inventive desserts with Mexican chocolate.
The chefs find a strange pizza in the appetizer basket; two proteins in the second round present a challenge for the competitors; chilies in the dessert basket.
The chefs get to use farm-fresh ingredients; poultry and pickled chilies in round one; in the entree round, the chefs make lamb dishes with fresh greens; the chefs make some odd choices for the dessert round.
The competitors celebrate the New Year with $50 worth of caviar in the appetizer basket; more premium items and a New Year's legume in the entree baskets; dressed-up ice cream cones and a limited number of grapes for dessert.
The chefs must work with caviar and expensive seafood in the first round; the second million-dollar basket contains a luxurious sweet and a delicious rarity; a $100 breakfast item in the final basket.
A giant circle of dough with a long history and veggies that look like tiny watermelons in the first basket; chewy candy and sweet cheese for the entree; green leaves and blueberries for dessert.
The chefs' baskets are full of hunter-forager ingredients; an aquatic wonder and a delicate flower in round one; an imposing root and a wild beast for the entree round; berries and butter for dessert.
