- 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
In the kitchens of the Art Institute of California-Los Angeles, our budding chefs are schooled in food costs, communication, and collaborative cooking. Paired up and given $40 and a few hints by guest chef Govind Armstrong of Table 8 restaurant, each team has 30 minutes to scour the bounty of L.A.'s historic Farmer's Market for the freshest ingredients. Big egos and differing tastes make for a spicy mix as the finalists return for a team cook-off.
