The hourlong program pits four chefs against each other in contests of skill and creativity inside a supermarket. Syed’s episode, titled “Lemon Bars.”
Reality television is tough, Syed admited to Naples Daily News, especially for first-timers. It is never as easy as it looks, especially under the glare of lights and looking at a camera shoved atop your spatula and right in your face. During Sunday’s show, contestants must prepare stir-fry using only items from even-numbered aisles. Another culinary challenge forces the knife-wielding competitors to deconstruct lemon bars and use those same ingredients to prepare dinner. (Just a hypothetical: How would you turn flour, sugar, eggs and lemon into something other than pastry?)
“A cooking reality show is a combination of food and entertainment,” Syed admits.
But did he enjoy his time as a star? Of course.
“Talking can be done,” Syed said. “But it is better to prove yourself in a cooking battleground.”
