Red Arrow Studios format The Taste has been recommissioned by GNT Brazil for a fifth season.
The format was originally created and produced by Kinetic Content for ABC (US), and has now been licensed by Red Arrow Studios International to over 40 territories worldwide, including a successful and long-running production in Germany, produced by RedSeven Entertainment for SAT.1.
In Latin America the format has also aired in Colombia on Caracol TV.
Season Five of the Brazilian version will feature the return of top chefs Felipe Bronze, Claude Troisgros, André Mifano and Helena Rizzo to the show. The Taste sees 16 competitors – from home cooks to professional chefs – selected by four famous Masters of Food, with their creations judged on a blind taste. A single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send them home.
In each episode the contenders take part in both a team and individual challenge. The mentors then eat a single spoonful and judge it, not knowing who prepared the food, which ingredients they used or how they cooked it. At the end of each show, the mentors decide who to eliminate, leading to the final where only one chef can take home the grand prize.
The Taste Brazil returns to GNT today, April 4, 2019.
