When professional chefs present their dishes, their years of experience and their reputations for stellar cuisine and expert technique often precede them, so much so that tasters may be biased when it comes to reviewing the food. But what happens when judges don't know if the meal was prepared by a home cook or a chef? Will perceptions change and critiques differ? That's where the series Cooks vs. Cons comes in.
