Ian, Michael and Hrishikesh compete in the Gilpin hotel Lake District kitchen to land their dream job on Alex Polizzi: Chefs on Trial.
Alex 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.
Alex will offer up nine candidates to be put through a rigorous interview process. As well as testing their technical cooking skills, all candidates will have a face-to-face interview and a chance to cook a signature dish that shows off their best dish. But at the end of the week, only one can get the job.
