“Worst Cooks in America” turns 10! The culinary competition series premiered on Food Network on this day in 2010. The show takes 12 to 16 contestants (referred to as “recruits”) with very poor cooking skills through a culinary boot camp, to earn a cash prize of $25,000 and a Food Network cooking set.
From Wipekedia: The recruits on “Worst Cooks in America” are trained on the various basic cooking techniques including baking, knife skills, temperature, seasoning and preparation. The final challenge is to cook a restaurant-quality, three-course meal for three food critics.
The 21st edition of “Worst Cooks in America” begins on Food Network this evening.
