Yes, Virginia, There is a Chopping Block

In honor of the holidays, the chefs are asked to keep with a seasonal theme. But gauging from the first basket, the competitors quickly learn they will need to veer from tradition.

When both finalists want to use the only microwave to speed things along in the Dessert Round, some holiday bickering ensues.

It's holiday time on Chopped! The competitors are challenged to stay in the spirit of the season throughout the meal.

Then, in the entree round, a prized piece of meat and a beautiful vegetable have the makings of a great main dish, but a sweet surprise in the basket may present "ye old yuletide" pitfall for the chefs. And when the finalists find an often-disparaged holiday classic in the dessert basket, who will be able to elevate the ingredient and be on their merry way with $10,000?
