Ah, the holidays, a time for love, joy, and awful meals prepared by over-reaching loved ones, over-worked chefs, and maybe even you. In the spirit of this season, we're asking you to send us a story (or a photo or video) about your worst holiday dining experience. The reader who sends us the best of the worst will receive dinner for six from a standout local restaurant, delivered on Sunday, January 3, the premiere night for the new show, Worst Cooks in America.
On the show (Sundays on Food Network, 10pm ET/9 pm CT), top-flight chefs Anne Burrell and Beau MacMillan will each take on a team of six hopeless home cooks and try to transform them from kitchen zeros into kitchen heroes in 10 days. Viewers will follow the personal journeys of the twelve "recruits" as they face a series of high-pressure culinary challenges in their attempts to triumph over their inability to cook.
So, let's have them. Your worst to the contest line by Tuesday, December 29, please.
