Recap Image

After Chef's elimination of Julia, Rock pulls Jen aside. He apologizes for what he said, and Jen does the same. Jen and Bonnie are sad that Julia is gone, but they hope that culinary school will be good for her. Rock misses Julia as well because she was an "inspiration" to him. Bonnie is concerned that she's not worthy to be here. Jen is worried about Rock.

The next morning they gather before an uncharacteristically cheerful Chef Ramsay. He introduces them to his "number one mentor." It's his mother. Chef warns Rock not to curse in front of his "mum." She presents Chef's favorite dish as a boy: macaroni and cheese. Chef explains that people want comfort food, but as culinary artists they must make comfort food unique. Chef shows off his twist on mac and cheese. His version has lobster and black truffles. For the next challenge, the candidates will improve an American classic for fine dining. "Homemade to gourmet," Chef explains.

The three must choose from five domed plates so they don't know which dishes they are getting. Bonnie is stuck with franks and beans, which throws her. Jen is surprised with fried chicken. "I can do something with that!" she laughs. Rock's dome uncovers spaghetti and meatballs. They have one hour and can use anything from the Hell's Kitchen pantry. Bonnie is hung up on what a franks and beans dish is. Rock makes fun of her.

With the time up, everyone presents their dishes to Chef and his mom. Bonnie has an Italian version of franks and beans. She made mini bruchettas with a mushroom crème leek sauce. Rock did three small servings of pasta. One is with a crème sauce, one with veal and the third with a spicy chorizo. Jen shows off her fried chicken roulade stuffed with crab meat, spinach and goat cheese.
