Last week on America’s Best Cook, airing on Sundays at 9|8c, the four regional mentors selected their teams of two home cooks each, leaving just eight competitors in the competition. This week, the competition officially begins. At the start of each episode the cooks will be given a cooking challenge, with their resulting dishes getting judged by a guest Food Network chef. This time the challenge is all about elevating classic dishes. With that in mind, the home cooks must reinvent and modernize a traditional dish — pulling out all the stops for creativity. But not everyone’s dish will be a success. Some will reach too far, others not far enough.
FN Dish wants to know: If you had to reinvent a classic dish, which one would it be? Vote in the poll below and get a sneak peek at the challenge.
The home cooks must choose from sloppy joes, mac and cheese, spaghetti, fish sticks, tacos, chili or tuna casserole. Vote on which one you would want to reinvent, and in the comments, let us know your creative angle.
