Jump for Bok Choy
An Argentinian meat is one of the appetizer surprises. In round two, the basket holds a favorite seafood selection and bok choy. Finally, tofu and a take on cheesecake keep the finalists on their toes in the dessert round.
Famous Food Network cooks Ted Allen, Jeff Mauro, Jet Tila and Chris Santos compete with their moms. The mother/son teams strive to carefully crack quail eggs, cook a large fish and find sweet ways to use blood oranges and walnuts.
The Newlywed Game
Four newlywed couples compete as teams, starting with shellfish in the appetizer round and a time-consuming legume in round two. And will making desserts with the loves of their lives be as sweet as can be, or a Chopped nightmare?
The chefs give the grill pans a major workout in this special competition. They start with sausage appetizers and face a diminutive veggie in the entree basket. The finalists grill desserts featuring marshmallows and nuts.
An Ugly Turn
The chefs are encouraged to embrace beautiful imperfections as they work with so-called ugly ingredients. Basket items include often-discarded seafood, misshapen veggies and a perilous-looking fish.
The chefs are faced with a spud of some kind in every basket, starting with two potatoes for their appetizers. Then, the entree round gets wild as chili fries end up in a blender and a whole potato finds its way to the deep fryer.
Four fathers join forces with their kids to make their families proud with collaborative dishes. A cookie in the first basket gets a laugh, but the salmon in the entree basket creates problems for the duos.
Got Your Goat?
The chefs take on seafood and boozy veggies in the first round, goat chops in the second round and then finish off with cheese and vegetables in the dessert round.
Snap Pea to It!
The chefs make lamb appetizers that include a trendy toast in the first round, while poultry and snap peas are part of the round two challenge. Then they do their best with fruits and a fermented beverage in the dessert round.
Bangin' Backyard Cookout
The chefs imagine they're making a memorable meal for a backyard party. Burger fixings, minus the beef, force the competitors to get creative in the entree round. Then, a clever centerpiece meets a crunchy snack for dessert.
Four bold female bakers rise to the challenge and try to clinch a $10,000 victory. Challenges include working with flatbread dough, a strong-tasting melon and a final pastry round with marshmallow fluff and lemon balm.
The chefs must create appetizers in just 20 minutes from clams and a sweet dried fruit, an entree featuring squid ink and a strong-flavored candy, then a dessert pie made of beans and an alcoholic drink.
Chefs battle it out in challenges that involve gorgeous crustaceans, a speedy clock, expensive mushrooms and apple desserts.
