Season 2 - Episode 9
Every Round Has Its Thorns
Four chefs are challenged out of the gate as a host of unusual ingredients take the stage. Ready-made eggrolls and stilton cheese collide in the appetizer round, giving way to the odd pairing of blood sausage and lemongrass in the entrée. The last two chefs struggle with sweet and salty in the dessert round featuring spicy salted plums and vanilla frosting.
