Four talented chefs compete in supermarket-themed cooking challenges as they must navigate their way through the aisles, adhering to "real-world" challenges of shopping on a budget, substituting out-of-stock ingredients, and cooking (and checking out) with five items or less.

There's nothing comforting about making a comfort meal with five ingredients, but that's what the chefs have to do.
