IT'S THE FIRST ROUND OF COMPETITIONS FOR 16 CULINARY HOPEFULS WHO WILL SHARE "THEIR LIVES ON A PLATE" TO IMPRESS THE MENTORS/JUDGES ON ABC'S "THE TASTE"

Chef and Author Edward Lee Guest Judges Group Challenge

"My Life on a Plate" - It's the first round of competitions for the 16 culinary hopefuls who have secured a spot in "The Taste" kitchen. The teams will face both group and individual cooking challenges as they gear up for battle.

First challenge: Each mentor joins their team in the kitchen for the first time, shares their own memories of the foods that remind them of home, and gives their team a specific dish to put a personal spin on. Second challenge: Without the help of their mentors, the competitors have to prepare the dish that most represents their own memories of home. From soup and roasted meats to a multicultural mash up, in the end, two competitors will be sent home.

Chef and author Edward Lee guest judges during this episode of "The Taste" THURSDAY, JANUARY 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
