Chopped is a reality-themed cooking competition series that airs on Food Network. Four chefs compete in three three rounds or segments on the show: appetizer, entree and dessert. After each round, a chef is then eliminated until there is one winner at the end. The winner receives $10,000.[1] In each round the chefs are given three to five food items that must be part of their dish. There is a large pantry and refrigerator that the chefs can use in addition to the required items. In each round the chefs are given a limited time to complete their dish. The appetizer part lasts twenty minutes. The entree and dessert parts last thirty minutes. Three guest chefs judge each round.
