- 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
It's down to the last challenge for our two finalists, Katie and Sara. Back when they first arrived in New York City, the contestants created a "dream list" of ingredients to cook their "dream meal." Now, the judges provide them with everything on their lists along with two experts: Allison Williams, the general manager of Olives, and Joe Bibbo, the sommelier. The finalists have fifteen minutes to sit with them, write their menu down, pair their food with wines, and pick china and silverware. The finalists have two hours to cook. This final challenge puts the contestants in the position of owning their own restaurant and calling all the shots.
