Watch the Premiere of "The Taste" on ABC

Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, and Marcus Samuelsson will pick their teams. Who will get the final taste? Tune in tonight, Thursday, January 2, as Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre and Marcus Samuelsson prime their taste buds to choose their team on "The Taste". Sixteen competitors will be chosen based on blind bites they will prepare for the judges. Those who make it past the judges' discerning palates will then be put on teams of four where they will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. Surprising guest chefs of the highest caliber will then choose the winning taste each round.

The competition starts tonight at 8pm EST on ABC. Tune in every week to the show and check out Marcus's Twitter (@MarcusCooks) where he will be live tweeting every episode.
