ultimate culinary boot camp. Under the watchful and often critical eye of
renowned chef Gordon Ramsay, the fifteen would-be cuisiniers slice, dice,
flambé and sauté their way to the top, in order to prove they have what it
takes to succeed in the high 'steaks' world of fine-dining. The 'pièce de
résistance' this time around is the coveted position of Executive Chef at
Gordon Ramsay's new restaurant, The London West Hollywood, scheduled to open
in summer 2008.
    Each week the competition sizzles as Chef Ramsay turns up the intensity
and demands nothing short of perfection from his new recruits. Emotions run
high and tempers boil over with more aspiring chefs and more dinner services
than ever before. While the competitors each vie for his approval, watch for
Gordon's saucy demeanor and spicy vocabulary to stir things up and leave them
feeling fried!
