Next Episode of Alex Polizzi: Chefs on Trial is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Alex Polizzi takes on the difficult challenge of finding head chefs for restaurants that have a desperate need to fill a vacancy.
Alex tackles Potli, an Indian market food restaurant in London's Hammersmith. Owners Jay and Uttam have endured an agonising six-month search for a new head chef to help take their first steps towards opening a small chain of restaurants. They've now turned to Alex for help to find the right person.
Over a week, Alex will offer up nine candidates to be put through a rigorous interview process. As well as demonstrating their technical cooking skills, all candidates will have a face-to-face interview and a chance to cook a signature dish which shows off their culinary flair. But at the end of the week only one can get the job.
Yesterday's interview had an unexpected result and the pressure is on Alex to find an outstanding candidate. The next three candidates are put through the gruelling hands-on interview process. Who will identify the correct three nuts to make an authentic korma? Indian cuisine novice Stuart is full of surprises with his signature dish. Will Kuldeep's celebrity chef training be enough to demonstrate now is his time to shine? With expectations high, the chefs need to be as confident with their profit margins as with their cooking.
Competition is tough, as only one will be selected to go through to the final interview at the end of the week.
Alex continues her mission with Potli, an Indian market restaurant in London's Hammersmith, whose owners are desperate to find a head chef to help realise their ambition of expanding a restaurant chain. In theprevious episode, another successful candidate was selected. Here, the last three candidates are put through the gruelling hands-on interview process.
The tandoor skill test puts chefs immediately under pressure to produce an authentic tandoori chicken. Can Bindi's infectious enthusiasm and years of home cooking fit into a professional kitchen or will her lack or restaurant know-how be her undoing?
Mark is the most experienced candidate but has no professional experience of cooking Indian food - however, maybe his maverick fusion approach could be just what they need. And when it comes to costs, who will be bang on the money?
There is only one place left in the final and the pressure is on.
It's the final at Potli, a restaurant serving Indian market food in the heart of Hammersmith. Over the week, Alex has offered up nine candidates to be put through a rigorous interview process. It's now the final interview. With just two candidates having secured their places, it's back to the shortlist to give one chef a golden opportunity.
Their challenge is the ultimate test - to produce an authentic three-course menu to be tested by a restaurant full of owners Jay and Uttam's toughest critics... their loyal regulars. The candidates also have to manage a brigade of chefs testing not only their cooking skills but also their ability to run a kitchen.
When true expectations come to light, it calls for a tough early decision to be made. Will an Indian variation of fish and chips delight or dismay? Can an out-of-this-world dessert be enough to sweeten the deal? And can the chefs work together to run a smooth service and satisfy the owners' and diners' demands?
At the end of the night, one candidate will be selected to become the new head chef - and it's a tough decision.
