Two teams of cooks go spatula-to-spatula to see who can whip up the best meal using a regional speciality. There's a time limit of two hours and only $20 for ingredients. The finish dishes are judges on taste. Presentation and creativity. Most competitions are set in restaurant kitchens across the country.
