Watch Chef Academy

With all of the reality shows today that rely on airing heated disputes, washed-up celebrities devising scandalous schemes, and corny childish games between contestants to get ratings, it's so refreshing to watch a reality show with integrity and merit. One such show, Chef Academy probes the life of famous chef Jean Novelli as he mentors his pupils in the culinary arts.

Chef Academy aired on the Bravo Network each Monday evening and was broadcast from Venice, California. The premise of the show revolved around Jean and nine students: Carissa, Emmanuel, Kyle D., Kyle K., Leonard, Sarah, Suzanne, Tracie, and Zoe. Each episode, the students are given an assignment in which they are to create a culinary masterpiece. As the show culminates, Jean decides whether each student passes or fails the assignment. Viewers can expect to see his disciples create all types of exotic dishes and desserts, from Rack of Lamb to wedding cakes.
