Next Episode of Worst Cooks in America is
Season 12 / Episode 3 and airs on 22 January 2018 02:00
Chef Anne Burrell is back for a seventh season of trying to turn some of America's worst cooks into kitchen stars. This time, however, the recruits are seven celebrities who can showcase their talents on TV and in movies, but not no so much in the kitchen. Burrell competes against Worst Cooks in America newcomer Rachael Ray to see which chef can lead one contestant to make the most impressive culinary transformation. Actors Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White and Barry Williams join reality stars Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Chris Soules and Kendra Wilkinson in boot camp. The winning star gets $50,000 for charity and bragging rights for his or her mentor. Not all of the celebrities will make the cut, however; after an opening potluck dinner each mentor selects three recruits to be on her team, leaving one celebrity to be sent home before the competition really begins. Burrell is looking to extend her record to 5-2, while Ray looks to get the win in her first season.
Sixteen hapless home cooks begin culinary boot camp in the Season 3 opener. First, the recruits prepare signature dishes, which are then critiqued by hosts Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay. Later, they learn the basics of cooking breakfast.
The recruits will be tested on an international level as they attempt to learn to make Hand Pulled Chinese Noodles and meatballs from around the globe. Will the recruits pull through or will they create an international disaster?
It's all about flavours for the recruits as they have to make and top their own pizza and have their palates tested with extreme and odd flavor combinations. With 12 recruits left, they will all have to fight to taste victory!
The 10 remaining recruits will be up all night learning how to make a late-night treat at a local diner, then Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay will take it up a notch and teach them all an exquisite romantic entree for two.
Eight recruits will be asked to re-create one of Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay's favorite meals using nothing but their sense of taste, smell and sight while their teachers secretly watch and judge. Then it's a St. Patrick's Day surprise as the recruits have to cater a party for 40 hungry Irish New Yorkers.
It's time to get down and dirty as the recruits visit a fish market and have to make a colossal raw bar tower. Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay will then put their names on the line as the recruits cook for the chefs' own families!
The recruits have to impress their hardest critics yet in hopes of moving on to the finale. First they'll feed 30 screaming third-graders, then they'll have to cook a family-style meal for their loved ones who sent them to boot camp.
In the final battle, the two remaining recruits must execute their own three-course menu for a panel of culinary titans at David Burke Kitchen, a restaurant in New York City. Bobby and Anne work with their respective recruits to design the menus, taking into account their personal culinary journeys. The contestants learn new techniques, shop for groceries, practice their menus and execute all three courses in a dramatic end to an exhausting competition. Finally the panel of culinary experts -- including David Burke, Marcus Samuelsson and Susan Feniger -- determine which chef has moved from worst to first and will walk away with the $25,000 grand prize.
