FEATURED SERIES

Worst Cooks in America: Season 2

Sixteen of the country's most hopeless cooks attempt to transform from kitchen zeros into kitchen heroes as they compete in a grueling culinary boot camp. The "recruits" - nominated by family and friends for their abysmal cooking skills - are split into two teams led by Chef Anne Burrell (Secrets of a Restaurant Chef) and Chef Robert Irvine (Dinner: Impossible). In each one-hour episode, the recruits put to use the techniques they learn from their chefs in two high-pressure tests. The worst cook from each team is eliminated at the end of the episode and in the finale, the finalists must prepare a restaurant-quality meal for a panel of culinary experts. On the line are the chefs' professional reputations and $25,000 for the newly-crowned kitchen hero. Season one of Worst Cooks in America premiered on January 3, 2010 as the highest-rated series premiere in Food Network history.

· Premieres Sunday, January 2nd at 9pm, "Worst Food Forward" - SEASON PREMIERE! For the Skill Drill, the 16 recruits must prepare a dish from scratch before each chef chooses a team for the other chef to teach. For the Main Dish Challenge, the recruits butcher a chicken and replicate an entr´┐Że as taught by their chef.

· Premieres Sunday, January 9th at 9pm, "Farmageddon" The recruits visit a farm where Chefs Anne and Robert challenge them to prepare an omelet for their Skill Drill. For the Main Dish Challenge, both chefs demonstrate a dish, and each recruit participates in a step of the demo. Then, the recruits must rely on their memory when the chefs take away their notebooks.

· Premieres Sunday, January 16th at 9pm, "Frozen to Fabulous" Chefs Anne and Robert set out sauces for each team to replicate by taste alone, and each chef then incorporates one of the sauces into a seafood dish which their team members must recreate for the Skill Drill. Then, in the Main Dish Challenge, the recruits must replicate a "Frozen Meal Makeover."

· Premieres Sunday, January 23rd at 9pm, "Grill Skills" Chefs Anne and Robert challenge the recruits to a burger-grilling Skill Drill. The chefs choose the most creative burger after a blind taste test, and reveal a "Chef Advantage" - the chef whose recruit wins the Skill Drill gets to trade a team member. For the Main Dish Challenge, the recruits must execute elegant meals for two.

· Premieres Sunday, January 30th at 9pm, "Game Day Party" The chefs assign their teams a scrambled recipe for the Skill Drill. Each team works together to unscramble the recipe and cook the dish while the chefs secretly watch. For the Main Dish Challenge, the recruits must cater an hors d'oeuvre party for NFL star Kris Jenkins, his wife, and 30 of their guests.

After combating countless "impossible dinners," Chef Robert Irvine faces a daunting new challenge: save America's most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000.

Day one of the extreme mission begins with a thorough business assessment as Robert launches the restaurant into full service, closely observes the staff and kitchen, and determines their weakest spots.
