The Proof Is in the Pudding

The Proof Is in the Pudding

Episode 01


The chefs hash it out over mac & cheese loaf and one chef's appetizer is a cut above the rest.  Popcorn spices things up in the entrée round where all three chefs struggle to marry some unusual ingredients.  In the dessert round, the proof is in the butterscotch pudding as the chefs mirror each other’s desserts.
