3 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

After Tennille's elimination, Dave, Ariel and Kevin leave the kitchen in excitement after spending some quality time with their family. In the morning however, one chef, Dave, is up before the rest. After seeing his family, winning the competition is more important than ever to him. Being that Araxi Restaurant and Bar has international appeal and its home, Whistler, British Columbia, is hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics, the chefs must be able to cook cuisines from all over the world. A random draw leaves Ariel cooking a Chinese dish, Kevin making Mexican and Dave Indian cuisine.

With forty-five minutes to create his entree and never having made a single Indian dish, Dave starts off very flustered. Dave decides to use pork only after remembering that the cow is worshiped in India. Kevin quickly decides on a dish and is preparing a delicious mole sauce that he feels will take it to the next level. Chef Ramsay announces that there will be 3 surprise judges there to help him judge the challenge, all of which are experts in a different type of cuisine.

Ariel's dish is deemed fair, as is Kevin's despite the absence of his mole sauce, which he simply forgot to add. Dave nervously presents his dish to the three judges. Surprisingly, all three guest judges and Chef Ramsay prefer Dave's Indian dish and he wins the challenge. For punishment, Kevin and Ariel will have to clean and prep for tonight's dinner service under the J.P's supervision. Dave is rewarded with an unexpected three-course lunch with his fianc? and sister that will be cooked by the famous international chefs / judges.

Before dinner service, Chef Ramsay explains that each of them will be given the reigns to run the pass during service. Unbeknownst to them, Sous Chefs Scott and Heather, who are both helping to cook to form a complete kitchen, will be testing them with sabotaged dishes. Kevin is the first to lead service and takes command quickly, catching a halibut, which was supposed to be a sea bass.
