About Ultimate Recipe Showdown
In this series hosted by Marc Summers and Guy Fieri, the Food Network is looking for the Ultimate Recipe in six different categories: Chicken, Burgers, Comfort Foods, Cakes, Pasta and Cookies. After a nationwide recipe contest with thousands of entrants, the Food Network kitchens selected nine finalists per category/episode. The finalists prepare their dish on set under the lights and pressure of a live audience. A panel of food experts sampled all of the dishes to determine whose is the best. The winner will walk away with $25,000.
