Crime Scene Kitchen Season 2 recap reveals the elimination of Kristy and Tarsha in episode 9. The show follows contests between two sets of chefs.
It’s a new season with all new surprises to challenge the skill of all new bakers. This time six classically trained bakers teams will go head-to-head with six self-taught teams.
There are two Crime Scene Kitchens, and they started with a safety bake, and whoever wins the first round automatically advances to the next stage of the competition.
Judges leave the hints behind in each round, and it’s up to the participant to sniff out the clues left behind.
Using the only clues left behind in this kitchen, they must figure out what was baked there and recreate the mystery desert as best they can in just two hours.
The only one who knows the identity of that mystery dessert is the judge’s youtube star Yolanda Gampp and Michelin-Starred chef Curtis Stone.
The right decision gets them closer to winning $100,000, and if they make the wrong move, they have to go home.
The first episode began with a self-taught baker and the next with a classically trained one. Halfway through the season, both teams will merge.
The show premiered on June 5, 2023.
