Recap Image

As per Chef Ramsay's request after the most recent elimination, Benjamin must join the Red Team, but he's not too happy about it, calling the team fragmented and announcing, "I'm going to go hang myself."

The next morning, Chef Ramsay tells the remaining ten contestants that "Hell's Kitchen" is going to be holding a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. After the chefs meet the still-in-love golden couple, Sal and Marcy, they're given today's challenge: The teams will have 30 minutes to put a modern-day spin on three of the classic dishes served at couple's reception: Trout Amandine, Chicken Kiev, and Steak Diane.

Despite Benjamin's lack of enthusiasm about joining the ladies, he decides to step up and lead his new team, and amazingly, the women all start working together for once and churning out their dishes...without chaos! Unfortunately, things aren't going as well on the blue side, thanks to Salvatore, who, after deciding to roll the dice on Chicken Kiev meatballs, has undercooked them with time running out.

First, Sal and Marcy try the reinterpretations of the Steak Diane. When Nilka serves her dish, made with crab and mushroom reduction, Chef Ramsay calls her out for veering too far from the original dish, which includes cream, cognac, and mustard, though she admits to not being too familiar with a Steak Diane. Jay's steak includes elements of the classic dish, and the couple gives the point to the Blue Team.
