Sweet Genius Surprises to Come in Season 3

In this new season of Sweet Genius, the chefs I invited into my kitchen really raised the bar with unusual techniques and inspired flavor combinations. Candied vegetables? Champagne candies? Pizza dough Rocher? Why not.

The path to genius is never ordinary.

And speaking of unusual techniques, smoking ingredients isn’t just for barbecue anymore. Some of the chefs in my kitchen found imaginative applications for my smoke machine in their desserts. My palate will never be the same.

The competition is fierce and so are my inspirations. Find out what wild new wonders I have in store for the chefs this season. It will be anything but tame.

Being a pastry chef is hard work, but when I’m in the kitchen I like to have fun too. Tune in this season to find out what inspired me to wear a tutu and red nose.

New Season Premieres Thursday, October 18 at 10pm/9c.

    I love Sweet Genius, but I often wonder why when Chef Ron is about to anounce: … and your inspiration:
    "Chef Ron Ben-Israel", because he's an inspiration for sure.

  6. We are a bunch of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our community. Your web site provided us with valuable information to paintings on. You have done an impressive job and our entire community will be grateful to you.

    We just recently came upon this show and love Chef Ron Ben-Israel! His own desserts show pure artistry. In view of that, we just could not get over why he did not comment on the presentation or, shall we say terrible presentation, of many of the desserts submitted for his tasting. We watched the "turkey" eposide and watched in horror as one of the contestant's submissions repetedly looked like brown glop. They should have been embarrased to submit such messes to someone like Chief Ron Ben-Israel.

    Thank you, Food Network, for giving us a competition judge who is genuinely likeable. He doesn't tell the contestants to "bring their A game" or remind them repeatedly that they have to work for the $10K that is a fraction of what he is making. No, he encourages them, even when they lose, and says positive things when they deserve it. This makes us all feel better about risks we take in the kitchen.
