Home cooks are on the same level as professional chefs with years of industry experience -- at least in the judges' eyes -- in this culinary competition that conceals the contestants' identities until after a winner has been declared. Each episode features two rounds of challenges, which lead to a cash prize for the winner. The contestants are tasked with incorporating secret ingredients into classic meals, such as burgers and macaroni and cheese, with one contestant being eliminated following the first round. The three remaining cooks then face a new secret ingredient in the second round, which ultimately decides the winner. The judges assess the dishes based solely on presentation and taste, with the contestants' true occupations remaining unknown until after the final decision is made -- even host Geoffrey Zakarian doesn't know the true occupations of the contestants.

Chef Bobby Flay travels around the United States and tries to beat award-winning cooks at their own game. While the unsuspecting cooks think they're participating in one Food Network special or another, Flay and his team study up on their opponent's dish and get in some practice. Then Flay and company surprise the cooks during a taping session, challenging them to what amounts to a cook-off -- Flay's team and the cooks each prepare the dish, which is taste-tested by a panel of impartial judges. The specialties can be anything -- wedding cakes, pizza, barbecue, pie and more. Sometimes Flay wins, and sometimes he loses. As he says, "It's anybody's game."

Coming up with ideas for dishes using the mystery ingredients provided on "Chopped" can be difficult for adult chefs with years of experience, so imagine how difficult it is for young chefs on "Chopped Junior." In this version of the long-running franchise, children are tasked with making something out of mystery-basket ingredients that don't seem to go together. The usual "Chopped" judges are joined by celebrity guest judges to determine which kids advance after each round. The winning cook earns the same $10,000 prize that adults win on the main show. If things get a little too intense for the youngsters, host Ted Allen is there to comfort them and encourage them to keep going.
