Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge Season 2 Winner

Tonight at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network is the season 2 finale of Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge.  The three finalists competing for the $25,000 prize are Eric Howard, Robin Song, and Christian Gill.

The episode description for tonight states:

Giada De Laurentiis challenges the three final chefs to make a dish that represents the person they're most thankful for, and they each have to incorporate a different type of squash. The chef who most impresses judges Alex Guarnaschelli, Carla Hall and Christian Petroni wins a critical advantage for the dinner round, when the chefs have to make the ultimate Thanksgiving feast. The final three chefs battle through hours of cooking until the best walks away with $25,000 and the title of Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge Champion.

I will update this post with the winner of Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge season 2 after the episode airs and feel free to discuss this season in the comments.

Thanksgiving Live Returns To Food Network Via 'The Kitchen'

On Saturday, November 23rd at 11am, Thanksgiving Live will return to Food Network via a special episode of The Kitchen.

The episode description states:
From dry turkey to lumpy gravy, The Kitchen is offering advice on how to pull off the biggest meal of the year: Thanksgiving! Sunny Anderson, Katie Lee, Jeff Mauro and Geoffrey Zakarian are joined by Alton Brown and Alex Guarnaschelli to share their expertise and answer viewers' calls for help. They're also revealing time-saving tips and demonstrating some of their family recipes to make the holiday meal a success.

If you want to participate in the show, you can send in questions via the Food Network website and also through the Food Network Kitchen app.  You can also ask things on social media platforms such as Twitter by using the hashtag #ThanksgivingLive.

The last time Food Network had Thanksgiving Live was in 2013.  You may recall that was the year where Giada De Laurentiis cut her finger on live television and annoyed a lot of people during the episode.  Alton Brown has hosted over the years and he is back for this version on The Kitchen as well.

Feel free to comment on this post during and after this Thanksgiving Live episode, and if anything interesting happens on the show I will do another post.
