Show 5: November 10, 2012: Amanda Freitag Celebrity Chef and Food Network Personality

Chef Freitag is probably best known outside of New York as one of the core celebrity judges on Food Network’s hit series, “Chopped.” You can also currently see her Sunday nights as one of the battling chefs on Food Network’s “Next Iron Chef: Redemption.

Amanda takes us behind-the-scenes to explain how an episode of “Chopped” is put together. Each episode takes 12 to 14 hours to shoot on the production set ! It’s a lot more involved than it may appear to the home viewer. The judges (who take their roles very seriously) have spirited discussions about what dish should be chopped in each segment!
