6 Chefs Compete

Recap Image

Aired: 8/29/11

After one of their weaker dinner services, the six remaining contestants return to "Hell's Kitchen" eager for redemption. Chef Ramsay tells them that one chef from each team will be given a half-hour to make an entrée, another will have 20 minutes, and the last will get just 10 to cook for the challenge.

On the men's team, Tommy gets the 30 minutes because he's more of a thinker. Will has just 10 minutes to prepare his food because he is fast on his feet, while Paul is given the assignment to pull something together in 20 minutes.

In the Red Kitchen, Jennifer decides to make the half-hour meal because she knows she can't cook quickly. Elise volunteers to do the 10-minute entrée, leaving Elizabeth the 20-minute slot.

Jennifer and Tommy rush into the kitchen. But as Jennifer begins cooking, Elise and Elizabeth start shouting out questions about the ingredients available for their individual dishes. On the men's team, the competitors are just focused on moving their teammate Tommy along.
