Tuscan Kitchen is a massive restaurant that is looking for a new executive chef who can handle volume while maintaining their dedication to scratch cooking. Anne Burrell brings owner Joe Faro 4 candidates who are tested on their Italian scratch cooking skills and their knowledge of Italian regional cuisine. After a dramatic turn of events sends one candidate home in tears the 2 final chefs are each handed the keys to the restaurant for a dinner service. One chef's service gets off to a bad start and must dig their way out while the other struggles with consistency and must please a special VIP table to turn it around. Owner Joe Faro is left with a tough decision as to who to hire as Tuscan Kitchens next Executive Chef.
