Ep 1: Something Old, Something New
Eight new chefs and eight returning chefs battle it out in Charleston, SC. The new chefs enter the kitchen first and must cook as many dishes as possible in one hour using the simplest of ingredients, a whole chicken. Then the veterans square off to reimagine a Charleston classic, shrimp and grits. In the end, the chef with the worst dish in each group will go head-to-head in a sudden-death cook off to determine who goes home first.
