Crossword Puzzle Crisis

Episode: CCDIN-605F

Robert tackles his most puzzling mission yet. Robert's at the American Crossword Puzzle Championships, where he's given eight hours to feed 500 puzzle fanatics. But this is no ordinary meal; for this crowd Robert not only has to please their palates, he must also engage their minds. New York Times Crossword Editor, Will Shortz, gives Robert his mission and explains that every dish must be presented in the form of a common culinary-based figure of speech. Robert and his team must come up with a list of culinary phrases, such as "two peas in a pod" "high on the hog" and "which came first the chicken or the egg." Then, they must figure out a creative way to represent each phrase -- with food -- one plate at a time. Can Robert figure out all the pieces to this puzzle? Or will this be Dinner Impossible?
