Tonight's new episode "Desperately Seeking Sous Chef: Battle 1" kicks off a five-part tournament, each episode of which features four chefs demonstrating their culinary skills over three rounds, in which they hope to impress judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant and Chris Santos. Those judges evaluate the chefs on their cooking skills, attitude, leadership and ability to multitask. The best candidate in each of the first four episodes moves on to the finale and chance to win a job offer from Chauhan, Conant or Santos to join their restaurant as sous chef.
