Alex Polizzi takes on the difficult challenge of finding head chefs. She tackles the Gilpin, a fine-dining hotel in the Lake District. This much-loved family-run business is desperate to find a new executive head chef. After months of fruitless searching, the Cunliffe family have failed to find the right person who will care as much about their business as they do. They've now turned to Alex for help and are offering up to a six-figure salary for the right candidate. The next three candidates are put through the gruelling hands-on interview process. Their first test is of their butchery skills, as they are presented with a traditional saddle of hogget. Italian chef Michael surprises the family with his unusual approach. But will it be enough to beat Hrishikesh's 'east meets west' fusion approach to fine cuisine? Competition is intense, as only one will be selected to go through to the final interview at the end of the week.
