What’s in Your Ultimate Chopped Basket?

by in Shows, January 21st, 2013

Chopped BasketThree rounds, three different baskets and 12 out-of-this-world ingredients. Whether it’s Chopped Champions, All-Stars or regular-season episodes, that’s a lot of combinations to come up with.

So we’re asking this question: What would be included in your ultimate Chopped basket? Not something you’d want to receive, but something you’d give to a fellow competitor. Would there be two proteins? All sweets? Would you include one or two ingredients they’ve probably never heard of? It can be argued that the simplest ingredients like eggs, chicken, pasta and rice are sometimes the hardest.

Tell us what you’d choose in the comments below.

    Having just been diagnosed with multiple food allergies, eating out is rarely an option. What would I put in the basket? Well, I think it would be awesome to have limited pantry ingredients to see how they can adapt! LOL.. I need ideas, so I would say they could not use wheat/gluten, GARLIC, milk/dairy and eggs. I'm also allergic to peanuts, almonds, avocado, beef turmeric and ginger. I think it would be a hoot to see their faces when told they cannot use those ingredients, and then toss in asofetida, tofu, ground turkey and black soy beans. For us poor saps who can't have garlic, asofetida can be cooked off to mimic the taste of onions and garlic. This could be a great episode!
