11 Chefs Compete
June 22

The fallout from the last elimination continues, as Fran and Nilka take up sides.

The next day, Ramsay has a question... A classic mother sauce. Hollandaise. Tomato sauce. Bechamel. Veloute. Demi-glace. Your next challenge will feature them all and 20 ingredients that will each have to be used once... Five dishes, 30 minutes. Because the Blue Team has six, Ed and Autumn will work together.

The Blues work out a plan, while Nilka is focused on her individual dish, taking most of the ingredients and leaving her teammates to... simmer? Judging the challenge: two women that Ramsay hold in high regard... his mother Helen, and his babymama Tana.

Fran: Oyster Fra Diavolo
Salvatore: Squab of Duck with Linguine
WINNER: RED (Red leads, 1-0)

Jay: Pan-Seared Duck Breast with English peas
Siobhan: "Butterfly Cornish Hen" (It's a bloody pigeon)
WINNER: ... Nobody (Red still leads, 1-0)

Ed/Autumn: Pan Roasted Sea Bass with Mushroom Veloute
Holli: "Halibut" (Sea bass)

Jason: Strip Steak with Rosemary Demi-Glace
Nilka: Pan-Seared Steak
WINNER: RED (Red leads, 2-1)

Ben: John Dory with Lemon Bechamel
Scott: Roasted Duck with Sweet Potatoes & Eggplant

So for the first time in Hell's Kitchen, we've got a shootout... But there was one dish to be highlighted... Jason's steak. BLUE WINS! The Reds are going to clean every nook of the kitchens. And be thorough with cleaning and prep, because the kitchens are going live tonight. The Blues are going to one of Ramsay's LA watering holes when he's in town and homesick for England... Ye Olde Kingshead Pub.

And there's a picture of Ramsay back when he was just a soccer hooligan. Because, you know, that's how you get to the Michelin star. You break your leg on the field. In a battle of people who suck at darts... Autumn wins cookware... and guess what, everyone on the team will get the same cookware.

As for the punishment, Siobhan is concerned that the cleaning agents used in the punishment may very well be an allergy. As in the hives/throat-closing variety. MEDIC!

Three hours before service, the Reds begin to prep when the Blues return from drinks and playing with sharp pointy objects for fun and profit.

Before we open the doors, Ramsay says that he's going to hold off on the swearing because tonight is family night in Hell's Kitchen, with a children's menu. Open Hell's Kitchen... FAMILY STYLE!


We're hoping that it's the comeback for the Red Team. Nilka... is tired of losing. And they're not on a good start. Siobhan doesn't know that garnish cooks spaghetti. No apps are leaving the Red Kitchen. But the Blues... are on a roll. Salvatore has a question, though. One risotto or two? Two. He's cooking one. Then he adds more rice for two. And lies about it. BAD SALVATORE. NO HOME GAME for you.

Will Nilka get a result from her risotto? Not without lobster. Meanwhile, the kids in the dining room are coloring seasons 2, 3, 5, and 6 of "Hell's Kitchen."

Back in the kitchen, Fran's scallops are rubbery. So much for not (^_^)ing swearing. Jason's not doing better on the Blues as he's stalling on kitchen.

Scott's Wellingtons are completely holding up. And he's blaming his team for it. Raw. Cold. Not cooked. Yeah... Over in the blues, Benjamin takes control and gets the kitchen moving in the right direction. Red... is heading one direction... out the back. Ramsay, Scott, and Andi will finish the service for their kitchen, seeing as the Blues are pretty much good to go on their own. And while the reds are making excuses, Scott, Andi, Ramsay, and the blues are making dinner.

And you know what... We're going to call that a service. Good job, guys. Switch it off. And reds... start cleaning.

Needless to say, Reds lost. Go up and nominate.

Siobhan doesn't have the experience.... Nilka takes some heat for mistakes... Fran is scattered... Scott... is the whole bloody package, him.


The nominations... Scott (two bad services and is all talk) and Fran (... and she's not really sure why). Fran suggests Siobhan, who's always second guessing herself. Nilka says that Fran goes too slow.

Folks, I'm missing "Downfall" because of you, (^_^)ing nominate and be done with it already.

Ramsay wants all three of them front and center. Fran says she has the guts, learning from her mistakes. Siobhan says she put her best effort forward. Scott... gives a long-winded speech. To no avail. SCOTT... TURN IN YOUR MOTHER(^_^)ING JACKET!

Ramsay's not finished. Benjamin steps up and joins the Reds to even the playing field out... We hope.

"If Scott could cook as well as he talks, he'd be the winner of 'Hell's Kitchen'. Unfortunately, he can't."

Can Ben bring the girls together, or will all Hell break loose.... again?

This recap is dedicated in loving memory to Ron Stutzman, technical manager (1945 - 2010). To see this episode in its entirety, go to fox.com/hellskitchen.
