    It's the first round of competitions for the 16 culinary hopefuls who have secured a spot in The Taste kitchen. The teams will face both group and individual cooking challenges as they gear up for battle.

    First challenge: Each mentor joins their team in the kitchen for the first time, shares their own memories of the foods that remind them of home, and gives their team a specific dish to put a personal spin on. Second challenge: Without the help of their mentors, the competitors have to prepare the dish that most represents their own memories of home. From soup and roasted meats to a multicultural mash up, in the end, two competitors will be sent home.

    Back in its second season, and also with a brand new, two hour format, The Taste is open to everyone - from home cooks to professional chefs - in an effort to find some of America's most naturally gifted cooks. 16 culinary hopefuls will ultimately win the chance to show off their skills in The Taste kitchen where one blind spoonful of food can determine whether a competitor stays or goes home.

    The series features no-holds barred Chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef/author Ludo Lefebvre, and joining The Taste this season, Chef, author and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson. These four stars of the culinary world will compete, mentoring a team of four contestants apiece as they vie to create the best tasting dishes in a state of the art kitchen.

    In the two-hour series premiere, the heat is on when contestants put their best culinary foot forward and create their best dish for Anthony, Nigella, Ludo and Marcus to taste. At the end of the night, 16 will be given a place on one of the mentors' teams. One single spoonful will decide whether or not they make it past the audition phase and on to the competition.
