After tasting the food and much deliberation, the judges will decide which chefs will move on to the second round. Two chefs will be eliminated and the last two chefs will compete with different basket ingredients to create a fantastic entrée. The dishes will be judged on taste, creativity and presentation by our celebrity judges: Chef Ron Moler from Reds, Chef Chris Dobrowolski from Schoolhouse and Jet Foley from RIOT.
