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.
