Hosted by award-winning Australian chef Pete Evans, the show challenges chefs across America to create a meal for a large group of people in a limited amount of time while using only fresh, local ingredients.
The series is produced by WGBH-TV Boston and Newtown-based "Fine Cooking" magazine, published by Taunton Press.
Taibe is the chef at leFarm and Whelk in Westport. LaBant is the founder of the Schoolhouse Restaurant in Cannondale. Pépin is a legendary French chef, who Julia Child once called "the best chef in America" and has hosted dozens of cooking shows on PBS.
In the episode, the chefs prepare a baby carrot salad, fennel-Parmesan fritters with greens in a buttermilk-bacon dressing, slow-roasted pork shoulder with salsa verde, scrambled eggs with tomatoes and herbs, and strawberry and honey buckle with marsala ice cream, all while Tropical Storm Andrea rages outside.
