Season 3 of The Taste premieres with the search to find America's best undiscovered cook.

Returning this season to train the cooks is The Taste's all-star team of mentors: Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre and Marcus Samuelsson.

In the Season 3 premiere, home cooks and professional chefs from across the USA will battle it out in The Taste kitchen by creating their most delicious dishes for the culinary superstar judges to taste.

At the end of the night, 16 cooks will be given a place on the mentors' teams.

In a surprising new premiere episode twist, one competitor will be sent home immediately after an intense "Childhood" inspired challenge.

Along the way, the Frasers cross paths with notorious pirate and smuggler Stephen Bonnet in a fateful meeting that will come back to haunt the Fraser family.

Meanwhile in the 20th century, things are complicated between Brianna Randall, Claire and Jamie's daughter and Roger Wakefield, the historian who helped Claire search for Jamie in the past.

But when Roger and Brianna search for proof that Brianna's parents reunited in the 18th century, a shocking discovery makes both of them consider following in Claire's footsteps.

In the Season 4 premiere, "America the Beautiful": Claire and Jamie cross paths with Stephen Bonnet, a pirate and smuggler who enlists their help.
