It's the perfect recipe for the ultimate food battle when the best amateur cooks in America put their signature dishes to the test against five professional chefs in “Food Fighters,” a high-stakes culinary game airing Tuesdays (8-9 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC.

Our guest is Food Fighters contestant Annie Smith. Annie Smith is a stay-at-home Mom and married mother of three from Corona Del Mar, California. Formerly a psychologist, Annie discovered cooking was her own personal form of therapy after her daughter was diagnosed with a rare neurological condition called Rett Syndrome, which left her unable to speak, make a full range of facial expressions, eat, walk, or use her hands effectively. She hopes to win enough money on the show to purchase a speech-generating device that will allow her daughter to communicate.
