Season 36 / Episode 1 and airs on 13 December 2017 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!
Ted Allen, Jeff Mauro, Jet Tila and Chris Santos compete with their moms; the teams strive to carefully crack quail eggs; a large fish and some lemons make up the second basket; the final two duos find ways to use blood oranges and walnuts.
Four newlywed couples face a playfully-named toast and some sexy shellfish in the appetizer round; chefs tackle a legume that's time-consuming to deal with and a pork cut that's challenging to cook.
Contestants make sausage appetizers that must also include a fruity beverage; an open-faced sandwich meets a diminutive veggie in the entree basket; two competitors left to grill dessert face a boozy marshmallow and a bag of nuts.
The chefs must embrace imperfections as they work with ugly ingredients; they find often-discarded seafood and misshapen veggies in the baskets; a strange fish presents a fierce challenge; the chefs work with an overly-baked item.
The chefs work with a potato theme, with spuds of some kind in every basket; chefs must incorporate two tater products into their appetizers; in Round 2, chili fries find their way to a blender; sweet potato pie meets toffee in the dessert basket.
Four fathers join forces with their grown-up kids to make dishes; a cookie in the first basket gets a laugh; salmon in the second basket seems simple but creates problems; an unusual flavor of gelato presents a challenge.
Chefs must use seafood and some boozy veggies in the first round; the judges decide who has the chops to get goat chops just right in the second round; finalists scramble to incorporate cheese and vegetables into their desserts.
Chefs must make lamb appetizers that include a trendy toast; poultry and snap peas are part of the round two challenge; competitors do their best with fruits and a fermented beverage in the dessert round.
The chefs imagine they're making a memorable meal for a backyard party in this cookout competition using a hybrid protein and a ketchup stand-in, burger fixings, but no beef, and an edible centerpiece.
A dough typically used for flatbreads and a strong-tasting melon in round one; a different dough is at the center of the second basket, prompting the competitors to bake again; final dish features a marshmallow spread and lemon balm.
