- Series Description
Judges Ming Tsai, Todd English and Michael Ruhlman search the country to find the most culinary committed. They track 12 finalists plucked from the country's restaurants and culinary schools as they embark on a coast-to-coast cooking competition, this documentary-style series will bring viewers behind the scenes and into the kitchen. Each week, the aspiring chefs face intense cooking challenges, difficult deadlines, and the heated pressure of working against the clock. In order to survive, they must combine their kitchen savvy, unique style, and skills of organization and creativity to serve the judges a winning meal. Contestants who fail to perform will run the risk of being "86ed" -- taken off the competition menu and sent home. But success will bring them one step closer to the ultimate culinary prize: a chef position in one of restaurateur Todd English's Manhattan restaurants. Series release date: 4/2005
- Program Description
First, our final eight get a crash course during a guided tour of Vegas hotspot Rio's extensive wine cellar from sommelier Ryan Voss, who teaches them how to taste and pair wines. Next, our eight new wine connoisseurs head upstairs to meet Chef William Becker, Rio's director of culinary operations, who introduces them to a fully stocked kitchen. In 45 minutes, the finalists must prepare and pair three dishes with wines before returning to the kitchen one by one to plate, present, and explain their pairings to the judges.
