- 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
The final four contestants arrive in New York City. They head to chef judge Todd English's restaurant, Olives, where they are met with their next challenge, the finalists will be "working the line." This means they will stand in a line with the other cooks in the kitchen, turning out food ordered by customers. After drawing cards to determine the order in which they will cook, they are introduced to the three dishes they will be preparing. Executive chef Victor LaPlaca shows them the classic Olives salad, chef judge Ming Tsai demonstrates his crispy calamari, and Todd English prepares seared tuna with risotto and asparagus salad as the last dish.
