Premiering Tuesday, July 23rd at 10pm – “Take the Cake”
In the first round, the chefs learn they must make appetizers that include ginger-like galangal and a trendy taco. Miniature fruit and softshell crabs are two of the surprises that the competitors face in the entree round, and a pretty cake that reminds one judge of his childhood is at the center of an eclectic dessert basket.
Host: Ted Allen
Judges: Alex Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson and Geoffrey Zakarian
