Two Chefs Compete - Winner

Recap Image

Aired: 12/15/10

After pouring their hearts into this intense competition, Russell, a sous chef from Chicago, and sous chef Nona from Atlanta have become Season 8's final two contestants. Now, they'll have to create their own menus and run their own kitchens for the final dinner service. As soon as that's over, one of them will be rewarded with the job of a lifetime - a head chef position at the JW Marriott Hotel's LA Market restaurant in downtown Los Angeles and a cool $250,000 annual salary.

The duo stays up most of the night coming up with ideas for their respective menus. The next morning, they spend the day consulting with their sous chefs to finalize menus, fine-tune presentations, and perfect their cooking techniques.

With just about 24 hours left until the start of the all-important final dinner service, Russell and Nona take a surprise helicopter tour with Chef Ramsay. But there's one more surprise in store: The helicopter lands on the roof of the JW Marriott for their final challenge. After telling Russell and Nona that they'll have to parachute down (Nona was willing to do it!), Chef Ramsay admits that part was just a joke. But he's very serious about the fact that they'll each have one hour to create five stunning dishes, which will be judged by five stars of LA's culinary community.
