Chopped Mystery Basket Weirdest Ingredient Bracket Tournament — Vote in Round 3

by in Shows, April 24th, 2013

Chopped Bracket Round 3Some of the mystery basket ingredients that get used on Chopped are pretty unusual, to say the least. But the culinary producers who come up with them don’t just draw them out of a hat — though sometimes it does seem that way! They take their time to decide on the ingredients, making sure the basket components are just right and actually manageable. FN Dish queried the culinary producers to find out the top 16 weirdest basket ingredients they’ve had on the show. The list of ingredients ranged from goat brains to gummy eggs over easy — almost no ingredient is off-limits.

Now it’s up to you, Chopped fans, to vote on the ingredient you think is the weirdest of them all in this four-round bracket tournament, which coincides with the new season of Chopped All-Stars.

Here’s how it works:

In Round 1, from April 10 to April 17, you voted on the 16 ingredients and narrowed them down to eight.

In Round 2, from April 17 to April 24, you voted on the eight ingredients and narrowed them down to four.

In Round 3, starting today, you’ll get to vote on the remaining four ingredients to narrow them down to two.

And in Round 4, starting Wednesday, May 1, you’ll narrow down the final two, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday, May 8.

Vote below by selecting one ingredient from each group.

The polls have closed in the Chopped Mystery Basket Bracket. Find out the winner here.

    I would like to know what the criteria is to "retire" an Iron Cheff. Do they just drop out, loose out, or just stop showing up????

    Cooking a great dish in a time contraint under the eye of the camera is more than enough to create a great competition. Ditch the rediculous ingredients! They are not food and they have no place in anyone's kitchen.

      I couldn't agree with you more! If you can't pronounce it, have never heard of it, and don't know what it is, then what's the point?
