Chopped Season 53 Episode 05 Description
Thankful for Teachers!
It’s Thanksgiving, and class is in session! Four beloved teachers get the chance to compete for the title of Chopped Champion as they share their love of cooking and their heartfelt stories of educating America’s children. Digging into the first Turkey Day basket, the teachers find something fried and something shaped like a pumpkin. In the entree round, a thematic loaf of bread seems suitable to gobble, gobble up just as it is, but the teachers must find a creative use for it. In the final round, will a spectacular ingredient inspire the teachers to end the meal with over-the-top desserts?
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!
