1. "A Next Level Welcome"
With a team of mentor chefs watching out over a talented group of home cooks, line cooks, food truck owners and social media stars, Next Level Chef season 2 re-introduces the three-level cooking stage with ingredients and challenges that match each level. From the opulent top level to the bottom level's basement, competitors are challenged to work with whatever they are provided with in hopes of moving up to the top level.
Next Level Chef season 2 episode 4: "Rice Guys Finish Last""The chefs are challenged to make a dish from the most popular cuisine across the United States. They will have 45-minutes to create a next level Chinese-inspired dish."
Next Level Chef season 2 episode 7: "Here Fishy Fishy""This will be the challenge that takes the competition to the next level. Chefs are alarmed when they learn the ins and outs of what it takes to make a next level fish dish. And, for the first time ever, when the platform comes down, it will not be stopping."
"Produced by Studio Ramsay Global and FOX Alternative Entertainment, Next Level Chef is the next evolution in cooking competitions, as Ramsay has designed a one-of-a-kind culinary gauntlet, set on an iconic stage like you've never seen. Over three stories high, each floor contains a stunningly different kitchen. From the glistening top floor to the challenging bottom of the basement, the ingredients match the environment, because Ramsay believes the true test of great chefs is not only what they can do in the best of circumstances, but what kind of magic they can create in the worst!
"With a level playing field, Ramsay opened the competition and scoured the country for the very best line cooks, home chefs, social media stars, food truck owners and everything in between, all competing against one another with the goal of finding the food world's newest superstar!
"Although he now sits unrivalled at the top of the culinary world, Ramsay started at the bottom, washing dishes in a local takeout restaurant. He firmly believes that as long as a chef has the drive, talent and perseverance, he or she can make that climb to the top. Creativity, consistency and cunning are the recipe for success to make it to the next level, as the competitors adapt to the challenges waiting for them. Only one can walk away a Next Level Chef and win a life-changing $250,000 grand prize with a one-year mentorship from Gordon, Nyesha and Richard."
Chef Gordon chose Tucker, chef Nyesha chose Nuri, and chef Richard chose Matt. Tucker's dish impressed all three mentors the most and saved her team from elimination. Chef Gordon's squad will be cooking at the top tier in the next episode and could watch the elimination round from the lounge room. 041b061a72
