On Wednesday’s new episode of Bravo’s “Top Chef Duels,” two masters go head-to-head and the challenges are appropriately tough.

Former “Top Chef Masters” competitors and long-time friends, David Burke and Takashi Yagihashi, take the duel to a whole new level.

In the first 30 minute rounds in which the chefs create the challenges, Yagihashi chooses an ingredient that is deceptively tough, the egg.

During David’s round, he challenges his old friend with crab. But wait, it has to be prepared three ways.

Then, the game takes a bizarre twist in it’s final rounds where the chefs have no idea what’s ahead for them.
