The home cooks and professional chefs compete in a childhood-inspired challenge; a competitor is sent home; guest judge Stephanie Izard.
Contestants prepare dishes from the sea, including steamed fish, seafood stew and shellfish in miso broth. Eric Ripert is the guest judge.
The 13 remaining cooks compete in a holiday-theme challenge that features dishes based on fowl and spiced chocolate desserts. Naomi Pomeroy is the guest judge.
The mentors give the final five cooks their final challenge: to create dishes with two opposite ideas and culinary concepts. Then, the winner is chosen.
