In each episode, competitors face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the Mentors judge the competitors' dishes blind, with no knowledge of whose creation they're sampling, what they're eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be eliminating.
Potential applicants that think they have what it takes to impress the best and take a bite out of the competition should sign up for an open casting call by visiting www.thetastecasting.com.
The NASHVILLE open casting call will take place:
Sunday, July 14, 2013, 10:00AM-4:00PM
The Bridge Building
2 Victory Avenue
Nashville, TN 37213
"The Taste" is executive-produced by Chris Coelen, Matilda Zoltowski, Emma Conway, Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson. Brian Smith is the director.
