Chopped is a cooking competition show that is all about skill, speed and ingenuity. Each week, four chefs compete before a panel of expert judges and turn baskets of mystery ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. Course by course, the chefs will be "chopped" from the competition until only one winner remains. The challenge? They have seconds to plan and 30 minutes to cook an amazing course with the basket of mystery ingredients given to them moments before the clock starts ticking! And the pressure doesn't stop there. Once they've completed their dish, they've got to survive the Chopping Block where our three judges are waiting to be wowed and not shy about voicing their culinary criticisms!
Host Ted Allen leads this high energy, high-pressure show which will have viewers rooting for a winner and cheering for the losers. Chopped is a game of passion, expertise and skill - and in the end, only one chef will survive the Chopping Block. Who will make the cut? The answer is on Chopped!
Since 1997, Ted Allen has been a contributing editor to Esquire magazine, where he writes about food, wine, style and everything else the American man needs to know.
