Episode Guide

    Street Cart Critics
    Episode 10
    Chef Symon faces some of the toughest critics in the world tonight when he prepares dinner for staff at Bon Appétit magazine and members of the James Beard Foundation, the organization that hands out the culinary equivalent of the Oscars. Unfortunately he's facing an impossible handicap. Not only does he only have seven hours to create his masterpiece, but he'll be using street carts for cooking part of the feast.moreless
  • The Pork Man's Nightmare
    There's a grumpy chef tonight when Michael learns he has to cook a vegetarian meal for 150 rodeo cowboys. He has seven hours to create a feast that will fool meat-lovers like himself, and it must include all three of the soy-substitutes: tofu, tempeh and seitan. Not only that, but the Pike's Peak or Bust Rodeo is located in Colorado, so if the no-meat clause doesn't kill him, the altitude might.moreless
  • Hospital Hijinks
    Hospital Hijinks
    Episode 8
    Chef Symon is back in Philly tonight, but not for a block party. Jefferson Hospital is honoring 250 of its best and brightest nurses, and Michael is responsible for catering the event with three amateur sous chefs who are former patients of the nurses. Unfamiliar with hospital catering, he may just need some last-minute help from a fellow Food Network chef.moreless
  • Crayon Craziness
    Crayon Craziness
    Episode 7
    Chef Symon visits the Crayola Crayon factory tonight, where he must make a tasting menu for 150 employees attending the 50th anniversary dinner for the 64-crayon box. Unfortunately, Michael will need more than his skills as the theme for each course will be decides by a turn of a wheel.
  • Block Party Blowout
    Chef Symon does South Philly in Summer, and not only does he have limited time to create a gourmet block-party, he's also restricted to traditional Philadelphia cuisine and ingredients.
  • Mother's Day Madness
    Chef Symon helps celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day with an up-scale picnic for 500 guests. He has just seven hours to prepare his mother's favorites, picnic-style, and only his ingenuity may save the day.
  • No Pork, No Pressure
    Chef Michael may have a truly impossible mission tonight. The man who's "all about the pork" must make a kosher passover, and the preparation rules alone (dairy can't touch meat, two separate kitchens, etc.) may be too much for this decidedly gentile chef.
  • Grand Ole Opry Obstacles
    Chef Symon visits the home of country music tonight where he's tasked with creating a meal for 300 themed on Charlie Daniel's "Devil Went Down to Georgia." With an inexperienced, but tuneful, sous chef and a deadline that changes according to a concert, will he meet the challenge?
  • Escape to Alcatraz
    Escape to Alcatraz
    Episode 2
    Chef Symon's newest challenge involves the prison that once housed America's most hardened criminals. He must cater an event at Alcatraz, but a kitchen a bay away, and juggling the tour schedule may cause him to miss the boat – in more ways than one.
  • Boardwalk
    Episode 1
    Michael Symon takes over chef duties tonight, and his first task involves the New Jersey Boardwalk. He has to put a gourmet spin on its traditional summer fare without access to a grocery store, meaning he has to make nice with all the vendors so he can create a dinner for their 300 employees.moreless
