SEASON TWO FINALE OF ABC'S "THE TASTE"
Culinary Legend, Chef Jacques Pepin, Guest Judges a Rich & Poor Cooking Challenge
"Finale" - It's all come down to this. With only four cooks remaining in "The Taste" kitchen, the mentors give their teams their final group challenge; creating Rich & Poor dishes inspired by various ingredients including tripe, liver, wagyu beef, scallops and foie gras. This week the finalists have the added pressure of cooking for a culinary legend, the one and only, Chef Jacques Pepin.
As a surprise, the final three who make it through the group challenge will be tasked with creating breakfast, lunch and dinner - all within two hours - and in front of a live studio audience that includes some familiar faces from this season, on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

It is from Kinetic Content and is executive-produced by Chris Coelen, Matilda Zoltowski, Emma Conway, Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson and Brian Smith who is the director.
