The last set of ingredients will contain stuff to give professional chefs a Heroic BSOD
There are a few foods that most high-end chefs, and even medium-end chefs, just cannot stand. Heck, they hate them so much, some don't even call them food
. Thus, a basket in the final episode will consist of:
- Chili Peppers
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Frozen Fish
- Canned Spam
- Margarine (optional)
I've left Kraft Singles out because there's a lot of overlap between it and Velveeta. And one good-spirited chef will laugh and laugh. Probably the one from Guam.
- Spam has already been used in one competition. And while Velveeta and Kraft Singles haven't been used, Cheez Whiz has.
- Kraft Singles (well, "processed cheese slices") have now been used in Chopped Canada.
You tick off the production staff at your own risk.
Inevitably, the more obnoxious chefs on the show get handed a basket that grosses them out. Considering these are deliberately selected items, one wonders if the production staff are playing favorites...or maybe trying to teach said chefs a lesson.
