From The Futon Critic

Geoffrey Zakarian is back to host the deceptive and suspenseful series, Cooks vs. Cons, where amateur cooks go head-to-head against professional chefs while concealing their true identities, adding to the mystery of this culinary competition! Each episode the contestants battle it out in two rounds of timed challenges to create delicious restaurant quality dishes using a secret ingredient. The pressure is on as a rotating panel of judges, including Richard Blais, Anne Burrell, Josh Capon, Monti Carlo, Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli, Katie Lee, Marc Murphy, Daphne Oz, Marcus Samuelsson, and more, decide who is a novice in the kitchen and whose cooking skills have been seasoned to perfection. Tune in to Food Network on Sunday, July 10th at 10pm to see if you can figure out who's who before the final reveal!

"Viewers were captivated as they played along with the judges to figure out who was the professional chef and who was the home cook," said Didi O'Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel. "Now audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they share in even more of the fun and mystery with twice as many episodes this season."
