7 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

Aired: 7/24/12

The seven remaining chefs are hoping to redeem themselves after a tough night of service. Chef Ramsay gives them 30 minutes to prepare three stunning dishes from the regular Hell's Kitchen menu. But, of course, there's a catch.

During this Communication Relay Challenge, only one team member will be in the kitchen at a time. Each chef will cook for five minutes, and then the next chef will take over. During the switch, they will have 15 seconds to communicate the status of the dishes. The second person continues cooking where the first left off. The team with the best dishes wins.

Justin and Dana are the first up. The menu is risotto, lamb, and cod. Since all three items have very different cooking times, it's vital that the first chef has a strong game plan, laying out which ingredients to start first.

After their five minutes are up, Justin and Dana have 15 seconds to update Clemenza and Christina. When they run out of time, Barbie and Brian take over. In the fourth round, Dana tries to keep things moving in the Red Kitchen, while Robyn burns the cod and must start again.
