Season 5, Episode 1

Edible Ornaments

Four professional culinary artists trim a holiday tree entirely in edible decorations. Over the course of several timed rounds, the competitors will make edible garland, ornaments and then cap off their trees with an edible topper. Each chef is allowed an assistant, but won't know who their assistant is until moments before the competition begins. The competitors will have to figure out how to stay focused and quickly communicate their vision if they want any hope of taking home the $10,000.
