Pompano Beach, FL, September 07, 2014 --( It’s game on for the three student chefs competing in Season 5 of All Mixed Up™, the cooking show brought to you by the producers of the award-winning show Designing Spaces™. The premiere of Season 5 of the cooking competition that scores big with viewers and is hosted by celebrity chef Ralph Pagano, will debut Wednesday, September 10th at 7:30 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime TV. Episodes 2 and 3 will air on Thursday, September 11th and Friday, September 12th.

All Mixed Up Season 5 offers a twist with an all-women culinary student cast for the first time. The fiery and competitive women will battle it out in the kitchen by slicing, dicing, mixing and cooking up ingredients from America’s favorite brands in a race against the clock to create three appetizers, entrées and desserts in 30 minutes. But that’s not the only way to win the coveted stars they need to take the win.

Celebrity Chef and TV personality Ralph Pagano dials up the pressure by throwing curve balls into the competition such as the “Switch-A-Roo,, where the chefs have to continue cooking each others' dishes, and the Sea Urchin Challenge.

This season’s judges, John Gray from Bubbies of San Francisco, Gracia Pratt from Simply Potatoes®, and Eric Schlossberg – Instructor at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, spice things up at the judges tables and will reveal the secret ingredients the aspiring chefs must use in their dishes only moments before the competition starts. The student’s dishes will be awarded stars based on taste, creative use of ingredients and presentation on the plate.

Tune in to see what’s in the mixing bowls and on the cutting boards this season of All Mixed Up™.
