Best of the Worst: Ready for Redemption
The best of the worst recruits are back in boot camp for culinary redemption. Anne Burrell and her newest competitor, Michael Symon, welcome eight returning recruits eager to finally master the kitchen. The chefs start off with a culinary time trial to see who has improved and who has reverted to their old, disastrous ways. Then Anne and Michael have the recruits remake the dish that sent them home. After teams are chosen, the recruits are tasked with replicating their chef’s dishes, which includes butchering whole ducks, and the recruit with the worst dish is sent home.
