About the Show

With the playing ground even -- no higher standards for the professional, no sympathy for the amateurs, and no one knowing their true identity -- a blind taste test will determine which is the best dish. If a professional is victorious, they take home $10,000, but if an amateur can beat the odds and take down the pros, they'll walk away with $15,000!
