While the celebrities are competing, the two leaders are competing too. Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence both return as the team leader and mentors. Both of these esteemed chefs want to earn a win in their column.

Depending on their team members, there is strategy involved. Burrell and Florence can cook a myriad of amazing dishes. Still, the dishes that they teach their team members must be approachable for the learning celebrity chefs. While flavors and even a few techniques might be advanced, the whole dish shouldn’t be too far out of anyone’s comfort zone.
