Recap Image

Aired: 11/17/10

The remaining contestants are ecstatic that they've made it to the final six and they all head up to the dorms to celebrate. After everyone goes to bed, Trev stays up trying to figure out a way to take down the women who wanted him out.

The next morning, Chef Ramsay explains to his protégés how an amuse bouche, "a one-bite wonder" served prior to the appetizer course, can really kick-start a dinner. For this morning's challenge, each chef must create an outstanding amuse bouche for some standout Los Angeles chefs: Ludo Lefebvre, owner of LudoBites; Quinn and Karen Hatfield, owners of Hatfield's; Suzanne Tracht owner of Tracht; and Michael Cimarusti owner of Providence.

The chefs have 30 minutes to create not just a tasty amuse bouche, but also one with an impressive presentation. Each guest judge will rate the dish from 1 to 10 for presentation and give it another set of points for taste, which means that each chef can score a maximum of 100 points. Gail starts out on a high note when her sesame chicken spring roll gets a total of 87 points. Sabrina is a little frazzled as she hands over her smoked salmon with glazed carrots on toast to the judges and Chef Lefebvre blasts it for a lazy presentation. Gail ends up with a weak total of 70 points.
