Hell’s Kitchen RECAP 5/7/13: Season 11 Episode 10 “12 Chefs Compete”

Tonight on FOX our favorite Chef Gordon Ramsey returns with a new episode of HELL’S KITCHEN called, “12 Chefs Compete” On tonight’s it’s the party of a lifetime when HELL’S KITCHEN hosts its first-ever Quinceanera.  Did you watch last week’s episode?  We did and we recapped it here for you!

On last week’s episode in anticipation of Steak Night at HELL’S KITCHEN, Chef Ramsay challenged the Red and Blue teams to create five beautiful steak dishes. Each team member selected one cut of meat and went head-to-head with an opposing team member. The winning team earned a day in the sun and poolside pampering, while the losing team had too prepare and butcher meat for dinner service. Later, dinner got off to a rocky start when one diner found an unpleasant surprise in her dish. Fed up with the lack of communication on both teams, Chef Ramsay sent the teams into deliberation, and tempers flared during another dramatic elimination round.

On tonight’s show Chef Ramsay announces that HELL’S KITCHEN will be hosting its first-ever Quinceañera and throwing a party fit for a princess. During the challenge, the Red and Blue teams prepare a tasting menu for their special guest. The winning team earns a fun-filled day at an amusement park, while the losing team stays behind to transform the restaurant for the party. Chef Ramsay puts the pressure on the chefs to execute a flawless dinner service, but when one chef throws another under the bus, guests are left hungry and dinner service comes to a halt. Frustrated at both teams, each team must nominate two of their weakest links, and Chef Ramsay makes an unexpected decision.

Tonight’s episode is going to be another drama packed one, which you won’t want to miss. So be sure to tune in for our live coverage of FOX’s Hell Kitchen Season 11 episode 10— tonight at 8PM EST!  Find out whose dreams of winning HELL’S KITCHEN might go up in flames.
