The first challenge, restaurant dishes to California firefighters, might be quite stressful for the home cooks. These challenges usually involve a lot of yelling by Gordon, cooking mistakes and maybe a few tears. It can be stressful for a home cook to create this type of meal. Hopefully, they keep the dishes clean, thoughtful and well-cooked.

The food scraps challenge should be required viewing for all home cooks. So many people throw away too much food. From broccoli stalks to carrot tops, food waste is a major problem. All those discarded bits offer amazing flavor and can be used in so many ways.

More chefs are becoming conscious of the food waste problem. Many restaurants and chefs are trying to educate people on being a more thoughtful consumer. People have adopted the idea of knowing where their food is sourced. The next step is better awareness of food waste.

Even though this subject is important, MasterChef will definitely put an interesting spin on the topic. It appears that Gordon will be in the kitchen cooking with the home cooks. Hopefully, no one disappoints their mentors.
