Cheftestants will conquer the Secret Ingredient and prepare a delicious dish (at home) to share to share at the DCJCC's "Kitchen Stadium" with the Judges' Panel. Noshers who really want to be WOW-ed by amazing food will get to taste it all... and vote for their favorite in each of three categories!
