PASADENA, CA, Jan. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - CTV takes cuisine to a whole new level as

The all-new one-hour cooking competition series puts 16 culinary competitors - 
pro chefs to home cooks - to the fire when four of the world's most notable 
masters of the food world judge their creations based on a blind taste test. 
In the pressure-packed competition series, the taste in a single spoonful can 
catapult a contender to the top, or send them packing. THE TASTE features four 
culinary superstars including no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British 
food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre, and 
chef/restaurateur Brian Malarkey as THE TASTE mentors. 
Each of the famed culinary experts coach a team of four amateur and 
professional cooks, facing a variety of team and individual challenges, and 
elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors judge the 
competitors' dishes blind, with no knowledge of whose creation they're 
sampling, what they're eating, how it was prepared, or whom they could be 
sending home. 
In the series premiere, "Auditions Part 1," the pressure is on when Anthony 
Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludovic Lefebvre, and Brian Malarkey put 29 
professional chefs and home cooks through their first gruelling round of blind 
taste tests - in which just a single spoonful decides whether or not they 
make it past the audition phase and into the competition. 
Created by Kinetic Content, Red Arrow's U.S. production company, THE TASTE is 
executive-produced by Chris Coelen, Matilda Zoltowski, Emma Conway, Anthony 
Bourdain, and Nigella Lawson.
