Chopped Season 51 Episode 13 Description
Epic BLT Battle
Everybody knows how to stack bacon, lettuce and tomato, but it will take skill and creativity to make a BLT-inspired three-course meal! The chefs find BLT-themed ingredients in every basket and are encouraged to celebrate the classic flavor combination in their dishes. A cheesy-creamy comfort food adds to the challenge in round one. In the entree round, the chefs scramble to make sure their dishes are “bacon-y” enough, and a lettuce-flavored ingredient in the dessert basket has the final two competitors shaking their heads and crossing their fingers that all ends well.
Chopped Show Summary
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! Our host, Ted Allen, leads this high-energy, high-pressure show that 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!
