YOU HAVE BEEN CHOPPED

By Nancy Whitaker

If you have access to the Food Network, perhaps you have watched the show, “Chopped.” It is one of my favorite shows and features a cooking competition.

In the beginning of the show, they bring out four contestants who are usually all connected with the food industry. Usually there are chefs, food designers, cafeteria workers, firemen and anyone else who thinks they can win $10,000 with their cooking skills.

They begin each competition by giving each of the four competitors a basket of four usually strange ingredients to use to prepare a dish. There are three rounds: appetizer, main course and dessert.
