BBQ Brawl: The hard work has finally paid off for the final three competitors. To decide who deserves the grand prize and supreme BBQ bragging rights, Bobby Flay, Michael Symon and Eddie Jackson watch on as the judges lay down the ultimate BBQ gauntlet: a super-sized, all-day competition filled with high stakes and surprises.
Chopped: Set at the new tournament kitchen, the Playing with Fire Tournament features sixteen talented chefs showcasing their live-fire techniques and skills while using the mandatory basket of mystery ingredients to create delicious meals based on meaty themes like wild game, steak, surf and turf, and pork. Who will come out on top of this fired-up tournament, and who will go down in flames?
Money Hungry: Kal Penn hosts the new competition challenging talented chefs, restaurant critics, cookbook authors and accomplished home cooks in the ultimate test of their taste buds. Competitors showcase their impressive palates in a series of increasingly complex tasting challenges that push their senses and culinary knowledge to the limits. The action begins with 60 seconds of rapid-fire tastings where the competitors must identify specific ingredients, then proceeds to the main course round where the challenges become more difficult with every reveal. In the end, only those that survive through the final tasting are awarded $50,000.
Battle of the Brothers: Bryan and Michael Voltaggio welcome eight of the country’s most promising chefs into their kitchen for a culinary competition designed to test the chefs’ talents to see if they have what it takes to succeed in the restaurant world. Week after week the brothers will mentor the chefs as they go head-to-head in the most competitive rivalry the kitchen has ever seen. Only one chef will win the priceless opportunity of a lifetime to take the keys of one of the Voltaggios’ restaurants in a guest-chef takeover to introduce their own vision and put their name on the map.
