9 Chefs Compete, Part 2 of 2

Recap Image

Aired: 7/17/12

Tonight's dinner service is the biggest test that both teams have faced so far. It's the Red Menu versus the Blue Menu. Chef Ramsay's critique of the Blue Team's dishes is a major setback for them when he finds that Clemenza has left bones in the fish. This dangerous mistake has left Chef Ramsay fuming and threatening to send the Clemenza home.

With only 30 minutes until the doors open, the Blue Team members have their work cut out for them. Before service begins, Chef Ramsay gathers all the competitors and tells them that they can make no excuses tonight: it's the contestants' menus, but it's his standards they must meet.

The Red Kitchen's menu will feature Christina's flatbread and Kimmie's rib-eye with Tiffany's potato gratin. The Blue Team's menu will feature Justin's scallop-stuffed squash blossoms, Justin's steak and fried onions, and Brian's sea bass. Chef Ramsay will be using diner comment cards to help him determine the winner of the night's dinner service.

Right off the bat, Christina has nine flatbreads fired but fails to answer when Chef Ramsay calls out orders from the pass. As she starts to fall behind, Barbie jumps in and lends a hand. With the flatbread crisis averted, Christina sends her appetizers to the pass.
