The Taste is Back for Season 3!

I'm thrilled to announce that The Taste is back on ABC for it's 3rd season! Last week was just the beginning: mentors Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, Anthony Bourdain, and I all picked our teams. This week, the real competition begins. In case you missed last week's episode, you can still watch it here on ABC.the taste This year's batch of contestants is amazing (you can get to know them here), and the lineup of guest mentors/judges is unbelievable - you can expect appearances from culinary all-stars Jonathan Waxman, Michael Symon, and Eric Ripert, just to name a few. Plus, we've added an exciting new twist to up the competition: a sudden death blind-tasting round, judged by our weekly guest mentors.

You can catch The Taste on Thursday nights on ABC at 8pm , and don't forget to root for #TeamMarcus!
