Contestants face a variety of themed challenges asking them to whip up the best concoctions of savory, sweet, and everything in between while Rudolph and Poehler provide comedic commentary. Once their creations are complete, teams will present their treats to the best possible desert judges – a table full of grandmas. Season 2 invites a new cast of contestants to step up and try to win the cash prize with promises of “explosions, instruments of destruction, and cake-smashing” across the five-part series.

On the same day as the season premiere, Cooking will also air a holiday special on NBC for charity. The special will see Rudolph and Poehler welcome their famous friends for a miniature pastry making to raise money for the causes of their choice. It is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. ET.
