This show brings aboard four present day chefs working in various outlets throughout the world. Each competes versus one another, as to their ability to create dishes based upon a basket of food items. There are three rounds of competition, and their dishes are critiqued by a panel of judges. Each round is broken down into an appetizer, dinner, and concluded with a desert round. This sounds simple enough, yet the kicker of the show is the outlandish four food items per round that one must use to create a delectable presentation that will impress the panel of judges.

The chefs have 15 to 30 minutes to create a dish with the ingredients found in their basket. In addition, one has a pantry of food items and spices they can utilize to incorporate into their dish creation. Once the time is up, each chef presents their dish to the panel of judges. The judges sample the dish and provide positive and negative feedback to each competitor. One chef is eliminated or "chopped" at the end of each of three rounds. The last chef standing is that week's "chopped champion" and is the recipient of $10,000.

Chopped Canada Full Episode Guide

  • A roast beef accompaniment, mint and pineapple appear in the dessert round.

  • Takeout containers are presented to the competing chefs, who must transform Greek salad and beef pho into tasty appetizers. Also: entrĂ©es made from a drive-through staple; and Asian desserts with a cherry twist.

  • The contenders must transform chicken wieners and dried fruit into a winning combination in round one. Meanwhile, brisket is tough to handle in the second basket as the chefs fight to make it to the final round.

  • Chefs are challenged out of the gate as a host of unusual ingredients take the stage. Ready made eggrolls and stilton cheese collide in the appetizer round, giving way to the odd pairing of blood sausage and lemongrass in the entree.

  • Frog legs and cookies get things hopping as chefs face off.

  • Round 1 ingredients include Italian soda, Thai noodles and the Indian spice, garam masala. Later, entries are made using frozen French fries and tuna steaks; and a dessert basket, with a fall theme, contains apples.

  • Fans across the nation weighed in with their ideas for challenging baskets.

  • The chefs must incorporate Pigs' ears and poblano peppers, beef hearts and turkey breast in their dishes.

  • Four female chefs compete. Included: salmon cakes in the appetizer round; entrĂ©es made with goat; and desserts created using frozen breakfast treats.

  • Some chefs draw a boudin blanc in the first round.

  • The chefs are puzzled by the presence of a Middle Eastern ingredient in the appetizer round. The entree round won't be a snap as they must pair monkfish with cocktail onions and a sweet treat.

  • Ingredients are missed, and a clam of a different colour causes complications in the dinner round. A familiar comfort food poses a new challenge in the final round as chefs struggle to repurpose it into a prizewinning dessert.

  • Four chefs stick their necks out when ostrich and lollipops appear in the first round. The entree is tricky as a jiggly dessert must be mixed with a gamey meat. It's a pickle as chefs must incorporate a bar food into a dessert.
