5-part stunt premieres Tuesday, Oct. 10, on Food Network
16 chefs put to test in challenges that tap into science of cooking
Alton Brown takes over the "Chopped" kitchen for a five-part tournament, "Chopped: Alton's Challenge," premiering Tuesday, Oct. 10 (10 p.m. ET/PT), on Food Network.
Four competitors face off each episode to create unique and delicious dishes over three rounds - appetizer, entrée, dessert - utilizing the mystery ingredients with a theme, as they must impress a rotating panel of "Chopped" and special guest judges, including Alton.
Ted Allen hosts the edge-of-your-seat competition as Alton influences the mystery baskets and demonstrates the science of some of the ingredients throughout the tournament.
Over the course of the tournament, the chefs are put to the test with challenges that tap into the science of cooking and the physics of food, with each winner from the four preliminary heats competing in the finale airing Tuesday, Nov. 7, with a chance to impress Alton and the judges, and go home with a $50,000 grand prize.
