With Rachael Ray beside her, Chef Anne Burrell faces a new challenge — celebrities who can't cook. They only have six weeks to transform seven pampered celebs into kitchen stars. To assess everyone's skills, Anne and Rachael host a potluck and find themselves tasting some very interesting dishes. After Anne and Rachael pick teams, one celebrity is sent back to Tinsel Town.
With the final recruit for each team chosen, Chef Anne and Chef Tyler work with their Recruits to choose a refined three course menu to be served to a panel of expert judges. While the Recruits cook, one must work through excruciating pain when they get a taste of the real dangers facing professional chefs daily. The two final Recruits work tirelessly in a professional kitchen to determine who will be named the winner of the Worst Cooks in America and win $25,000.
