Judges make pork belly and walnut appetizers, including dumplings, in round one. Then, a judge is challenged with a Hamachi collar in round two. In round three, the judges turn ugly foods into gorgeous entrees.
In round one, the judges use mystery basket ingredients from a Father's Day competition; in round two, a caddy of hot sauces is used; and in round three, judges incorporate duck into their entrees, and a special guest visits.
