Once the Battle for the Apron concludes, the top home cooks will be put through their paces in a series of challenges designed to test their palates, food knowledge, passion and culinary skills. Later, the hopefuls visit an amusement park to create amusement park-themed meals; cook for Las Vegas jugglers, magicians and dancers; visit a cattle ranch to prepare meals for ranchers and cowboys; and face the infamous restaurant takeover.

Your new show sucks. How phoney. After telling us that taste and presentation count, Some idiot cooks macaroni and cheese w/no salt or flavor, and he passes. Then some lady over cooks the pasta and the presentation sucked, and she passes! What kind of phoney balogna crap is this? I will never watch it again. Oh and I guess it was 'please the blacks day' since they were all black.

Also, if you've ever worked in some jerk's kitchen, you know it isn't cool at all and I'd rather go to prison and eat the same slop every day and die old than watch that kind of thing for fun.

Jeffery Steingarten is a total gargoyle of this new show. He displays himself as a bum who has no standards nor etiquette of eating a fine dish. He has this stand-offish way of making contestants feel as if he is the "hear all see all" and can't even hold his utensils correctly. He makes everyone feel inferior, as I'm positive he cannot even cook a proper egg. He chews "slobbishly" and should be banned from public appearances going forward. Yes, he may be an all acclaimed hero of the food industry, but he is an absolute MONSTER!!!
