4 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

Aired: 8/27/12

As the remaining chefs celebrate making it to the final four, they are surprised by an unexpected visit to the dorm by some of their loved ones. The surprise visit relaxes the contestants and brings them a little closer to each other, but early next morning it's every cook for themself as the competition resumes.

A car takes the final four to Bristol Farms, where Chef Ramsay tells them, "Every chef should know how to maximize profits." They are each given $15 and ten minutes to select stunning ingredients to prepare a dish that is not only a delicious culinary experience but also has the largest profit margin.

To help judge the challenge, Chef Ramsay brings in three special guests -- Chef David LeFevre from Southern California's Manhattan Beach Post, Bon Appetit magazine editor Hugh Garvey and General Manager of the Patina Restaurant Group Christian Philippo. The judges will taste each dish and reveal the dollar amount they would be willing to pay for it. The chef with the highest average price will win the challenge.

Justin is the first cook to present his dish. He has created roasted corn and mango jalapeño salsa with a chili shrimp. Hugh thinks the dish lacks liveliness, and the three judges put a price tag of $28.33 on the plate.
