Just in time for 4/20! The Food Network is getting ready to launch a true “high concept” television series.
‘Chopped 420’ a spin-off of the popular Chopped series, in which four chefs battle it out through appetizer, main course and dessert stages using picnic baskets filled with challenging foods.
As the name of the new series suggests, it will explore cannabis cookery as a basket element.
The host will be comedian Ron Funches, and judges include chefs Esther Choi, Luke Reyes and Sam Talbot; drag performer and cannabis activist Laganja Estranja, and comedian Tacarra Williams.
The show will start streaming on discovery+ on April 20 which is the annual holiday for those who indulge celebrating the best time of day to fire up a blunt.
The new series will mark the “first time in Chopped history” that chefs will “utilize cannabis to enhance their dishes, ” says Food Network president
