Aired: 9/19/11

Paul, Tommy, Will, and Elise are the four remaining chefs preparing to battle it out in the kitchen to determine who will be crowned the winner of "Hell's Kitchen," walk away with $250,000, and become the next head chef at BLT Steak.

Chef Ramsay greets the final four in the dining room and introduces them to some special guests: their family members. After a brief visit, the chefs are motivated even more to win the competition.

In the kitchen, Chef Ramsay presents them with the Taste It, Now Make It Challenge. He shows them one of his own dishes and tells them that they must re-create it by sight, smell, touch, and taste. They will get no information about ingredients or receive any of the recipe.

The chefs struggle to identify the protein Chef Ramsay used in the dish. Will and Tommy choose monkfish, while Elise goes with halibut. Paul decides to cook both monkfish and cod and determine which to present when the dishes are complete.
