Chopped Season 53 Episode 08 Description
Grandmas’ Grand Holiday
It’s the most wonderful time of the year with the most wonderful cooks in the kitchen! Four talented grandmothers are put in charge of making a remarkable holiday feast with love in every bite. The grandmas open the first basket to find a wreath made of something sweet, and everyone is excited to get cooking, but nerves lead to some mistakes and scrambling. A classic holiday beverage is a festive surprise in the entree basket, and the judges are in for a treat when two determined grandmas are left duking it out in the dessert round.
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!
