(NEW YORK) -- ABC has cooked up a new competition for its primetime schedule.
In The Taste, premiering Tuesday night, 16 pro and amateur chefs will be divided into four teams, each one mentored by a coach. They will face various cooking challenges throughout the season.
At the end of each episode, the contestants will serve dishes to the four coaches, who will sample them in a blind taste test and then send someone home.
The coaches are TV chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre, and restaurateur Brian Malarkey.
The Taste debuts with a two-hour episode on ABC Tuesday, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern time. It will be followed at 10 p.m. by the series finale of Private Practice.
