Recap Image

Aired: 5/7/13

As the number of chefs continues to dwindle, the remaining cooks are reinvigorated. This week, Chef Ramsay shows the contestants a photo of 15-year-old Brianna and announces that Hell's Kitchen will be hosting its first-ever quinceañera.

Brianna, her mom, Jennifer, and her godmother and party planner, Josette, will be the judges for the next challenge. The chefs must first create a sample tasting menu for the event. The teams have 45 minutes to create five courses consisting of two appetizers and three entrees - one pasta, one chicken and one steak.

Ja'Nel and Jon present the cold appetizers for their teams. They both make a ceviche, but the special guests prefer Jon's version, giving the men their first point.

Cyndi's fried cheese ravioli impresses Brianna, but Barret hopes to come out ahead with his fried cheese balls. Instead his dish is judged too spicy, allowing the women's team to tie the game.
