This season captures the varied tastes of Washington D.C. and features appearances by some of the town's top names in politics, aerospace, and even the CIA. The challenges are some of the most creative and inventive yet as the chefs take over the concession stands at the Nationals stadium, go inside the CIA's closely guarded headquarters, and literally receive out of this world direction from a NASA astronaut orbiting Earth.
Returning to the kitchen, author, actress and host Padma Lakshmi presides over the judge's table alongside head judge Tom Colicchio, James Beard Award-winner and chef/owner of Craft Restaurants, and judge Gail Simmons of Food & Wine magazine. Joining the series as a regular guest judge is award-winning chef Eric Ripert.
