Episode 4: Advantage ChefEdit


Premier: December 22, 2010 The chefs cater a launch party for the US Open.

  • Quickfire Challenge: The chefs must prepare a stuffing dish. All cutlery and utensils have been removed from the kitchen, so dishes have to be prepared with improvised tools.
    • Top: Marcel, Tre
    • Bottom: Carla, Casey, Tiffani
  • WINNER: Tre (Southwestern Inspired Bread Pudding with Apple Smoked Bacon, Cheddar, Bell Pepper, Chili Powder). He wins $20,000.
  • Elimination Challenge: The chefs are divided into two teams to individually cook for the players in the U.S. Open. Teams must designate representatives for head-to-head matchups, which are scored like a tennis match. The first team to reach four points gets the team victory. Chefs that score a point for the winning team are eligible for the win, while chefs that lose a point for the losing team are eligible for elimination. Though all chefs prepare a dish, due to the format, some may end up not serving; these chefs are ineligible to win, but are still safe from elimination.
  • WINNER: Carla of Team Orange (African Groundnut Soup with Baked Sweet Potatoes, Adzuki Beans and Peanuts). She wins a trip to Italy.
  • ELIMINATED: Spike of Team Yellow (Tomato Tamarind Soup, Olive Oil Poached Shrimp, Pineapple, Tomatoes and Dill)
      • Guest Judge: Tony Mantuano (Quickfire and Elimination Challenges), Taylor Dent (Elimination Challenge)
