Things start off on a high note when four chefs, including a ukulele instructor, must make a meatloaf without any of the usual ingredients. Next, how do you make an appetizer with less-than-appetizing items from a sample table? Finally, the chef that makes the most daring dish after a two-minute dash for groceries gets to go on a Shopping Spree worth up to $20,000.
Chefs from four distinct American regions vie for culinary supremacy. First up, turning a hometown hit into a homerun when you only get five ingredients. Next, it's sink or swim when chefs make a seafood supper using nothing but frozen food. Then, how do you prepare one protein two different ways when you can only use items from three aisles? The winning chef wins bragging rights for his region plus big bucks in the Shopping Spree worth up to $20,000.
Creating the ultimate diner dish should be easy for Triple D chefs, but a strict weight limit on ingredients makes this challenge heavy duty.

The winner takes a road trip around the market worth up to $20,000.
