  • Mucho Ultima in Manhattan Beach, Calif., is looking for a new executive chef to help re-brand it as a destination restaurant. Anne Burrell brings in four chefs. First, she tests their knowledge of Mexican chiles, then the chefs are tasked to reinvent the taco. The two chefs that remain are each handed the keys to the restaurant for one dinner service. One chef struggles to keep pace in the kitchen while the other runs out of ingredients in service. Only one gets the job and becomes Mucho's next executive chef.

  • Iconic Venice Beach Restaurant James' Beach hasn't had a steady executive chef in five years. Anne brings four top candidates that she feels have the chops to stay long term. Each chef must reinterpret modern comfort food for the health-conscious community of Venice Beach. When two chefs are each handed the keys to the restaurant for a dinner service, one chef juggles the stress while catering to demands of celebrity clientele, and the other breaks down under the time constraints. In the end, only one chef earns the prestigious position of James' Beach's new executive chef.
