Thanks Coney, I remember it differently but then I have gotten a lot older. That is the show after reviewing on the web. You might be interested in reading the following...seems like good ideas come around again just like fashion. Thanks again...it was driving me crazy trying to remember.

FOUR GREAT CHEFS WILL BATTLE IT OUT FOR CHARITY!
Chefs will compete head to head. Each chef is given a set pantry, a mystery ingredient and a time limit. Here's the twist: members of the audience serve as sous chefs and judges.
I signed up and enjoyed reading posts over the last few years. Brought back lots of memories from the Cajun Cook to Gramham Kerr.
However, I have a question that I hope someone can answer as I can't find the answer on the web by various searches.
I believe there was a cooking challenge show either on Food Network or regular network in the 90's or early 2000's. It was similar to Chopped but used more "normal" ingredients and I don't believe the people that cooked actually had a lot of professional training. I think two teams were given a basket of the same ingredients and once unveiled had so many minutes to use them and create a meal. I remember that across the country people had get-to-gethers to emulate the show and I think videos were shown on each show of some of these.
Am I imaging this or was there such a show. It so, what was the name of the show. My best fried who has always been an avid cook and cook show enthusiast doesn't remember it at all.
Does anyone have a clue...trying to find the answer is driving me CRAZY!
