Chopped Season 52 Episode 02 Description
In a pickle! Four chefs find themselves eager to show off their pickling talents but with limited time to do so. The competitors must pickle something in every round, and the baskets are packed with pickled goodness as inspiration, like pickle ice cream for the appetizer round. In the second round, the judges encourage the chefs to amp up the pickle flavor. Will they succeed? Finally, an action-packed dessert round features pickled flower blossoms, and the remaining duo work hard to leave a favorable final impression while taking some risks.
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!
