All About the cooking show The Final Table
The Final Table has a unique format that has not been seen in any of the other cooking shows. Out of the 24 contestants, participants are paired to form 12 pairs. Each one of them is coupled with the chef they are most comfortable with and with whom their choice of flavors matches. The episode is named after a country. And the contestants have to prepare the staple dish of the particular country infused with their flavors.
In every episode, the panel of judges changes. The panel includes a food critic and two residents of the titled country of the episode. There are two rounds. In the first round, the pair have to prepare a dish, and the dish is judged by three judges. The three pairs of contestants who fail to win the hearts of the judges go into the second round, ‘The Final Plate Challenge’.
The contestants of the bottom three-zone prepare a dish with an ingredient chosen by the guest chef. There are ten episodes in total and are binge-worthy if you are a food lover. Timothy Hollingsworth from the United States of America became the winner of the first season of The Final Table, while Darren MacLean from Canada was the first runner-up.
