The television show Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell follows Anne, as she helps restaurant owners find new executive and head chefs. Each episode features a different restaurant owner, as Anne presents four possible candidates for the position. Each candidate is interviewed briefly, by the owner to get an understanding of their culinary backgrounds and goals. Once the brief introductions are completed, Anne and the restaurant owner put the four candidates through a series of cooking challenges. These challenges are used to test the abilities of each job applicant, and how well they can follow instructions given to them by the owner. After each round, Anne and the owner are presented with the candidates' culinary creations. They are judged on their ability to follow the instructions given for the test, as well as their creativity, presentation, and taste of their dish. After reviewing all of the dishes, one candidate is eliminated and their job interview is over. Another test is given to the three remaining candidates, and the judging process repeats, until there are only two job candidates left. Now, the remaining two interviewees are given the opportunity to run the restaurant for one evening through dinner service. They must create their own menu, as well as work with the existing restaurant's kitchen staff to prepare for their dinner service. Anne and the restaurant owner monitor and evaluate each chef's ability to effectively run and complete a dinner service. After each chef has completed their dinner service, the restaurant owner chooses which chef they feel would be the best match for their restaurant, and offers them the position.
