On the other side of the room, Chef Jason Knapp goes through the items in his mystery box. It's a Battle of the Jasons here! The items in this box include Denver cut beef, rum, kohlrabi, saltine crackers, gorgonzola cheese, and gooseberries.

The winner of ths round will advance to the finals June 8th at the Statehouse Convention Center. Heat 6 will begin shortly after this competition is concluded; Chef Daniel Capello and Chef Donnie Ferneau will face off for the other position in the finals.
