Thanksgiving is a time for family, reflecting and taking the time to give thanks to family and friends. Five chefs from around the country put their spin on this food lovers holiday. Each episode features two rounds. In the first round, they take a classic Thanksgiving side and reinvent it, with the winner getting an advantage in the second round. In round two, the chefs are asked to make an entire turkey dinner in just one hour, after which one will be eliminated. As the four remaining chefs move on, they use leftovers and work to turn sweet pies into a holiday side, with another one eliminated at the end. The three remaining chefs now move on to the finale. In the first round of the finale, one chef is eliminated -- and once two are left standing -- they must make a full Thanksgiving meal in three hours, with the winner walking away with $25,000.

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.

Bobby Flay is no stranger to culinary competitions, whether he's hosting ("Bobby's Dinner Battle") or competing ("Throwdown With Bobby Flay"). In this program he does both. Each half-hour episode begins with two chefs competing to create a dish using an ingredient chosen by Flay. The winner of that challenge -- as determined by a special guest judge -- goes to the second round, in which he or she does battle against chef Flay. To make things a little more fair, the challenger has an advantage by being able to prepare a signature dish that is unknown to Bobby until the start of the round. Once he learns what the dish is, Flay must immediately come up with his own version. A panel determines the winner of the second round through a blind taste test. Food Network regulars Sunny Anderson, Anne Burrell and Giada De Laurentiis are among the judges appearing on the show.

Four chefs call on their culinary skills as they face off against one another to prepare a spectacular three-course meal consisting of an appetizer, entree and dessert. The catch? In each round, they have to use all the ingredients the show provides them, however unlikely they might be (Gummi Bears, anyone?). At the end of each course, a panel of three guest judges "chops" one chef who fails to measure up in terms of taste, presentation and creativity. The last chef standing takes home bragging rights and a cool $10,000. Ted Allen hosts.
