What to Watch: Chopped School Chefs Special Edition

Show: Chopped
chopped class acts, too

Summer is over and that means school is back in session. This fall, however, children will not be the only students getting an education. This season on Chopped, they're taking four of the most talented women out of their cafeterias and giving them a test of our own. The first challenge demands innovation as the ladies are faced with the task of putting ground turkey together with a popular frozen treat.

This is the second time around that the Chopped kitchen has welcomed esteemed lunch ladies, or, as Marc Murphy says, “I don’t like to call them lunch ladies, I like to call them school chefs.” Last year he admitted this was his favorite episode.

Only two women will get the chance to move on to the final examination in which they attempt an age-old feat: creating a dessert out of a basket of healthy items. The palate of a child may be hard to please, but how will these women hold up against the panel of Chopped judges?
