The setting is after hours at The Gorbals in downtown Los Angeles. The setting is very intense. There are celebrities, foodies and restaurant critics. They are there to intimidate the cooks by yelling and heckling the cooks.

The two cooks are given three ingredients to cook with. The chefs must use these ingredients and cook as many dishes as they want in an hour. After the hour, the chefs them present there dishes to the judges. one will be name the winner and bragging rights and one will be the loser. Each cook will be presented with a cleaver; the winner's says "I Won" and the loser's says "I Almost Won."
