“Thanksgiving Soup-er Stars” – THANKSGIVING EPISODE!

All four chefs in this special Thanksgiving competition dedicate their time and talents to soup kitchens. In the first round, the chefs each come up with distinctive appetizer concepts in response to the typical Thanksgiving leftovers found in the baskets. Then in the entree round, the remaining chefs are surprised to see a theme emerging with the baskets. An ice cream cake and a starchy candy are two of the perplexing items to be dealt with in the final round.
