On Cooks vs. Cons, only the competitors themselves know what kind of culinary background they're bringing to the battle before them; not even the judges or host Geoffrey Zakarian have been told who's a professional cook and who's a kitchen con artist. The panel, like viewers at home, can only guess the contestants' skill levels, but by watching their use of ingredients and their expertise (or lack thereof) with the tools they handle, the judges and fans alike can begin to deduce who are the masters and who are the novices among the group.

Now it's your turn to learn what level of kitchen proficiency you would bring to the competition. Do you have what it takes to be worthy of the professional title, or are you a cooking con artist? Take the quiz below to find out. Tune in to Cooks vs. Cons on Thursdays at 9|8c.
