For someone who’s clueless about cooking, julienne or blanch might sound like a person’s name, temper sounds like something you lose when you’re upset, and spatchcock might be something to do with Fifty Shades of Grey. Though these kitchen techniques are second nature to experienced chefs, not so with cooking newbies.

On Chef In Your Ear, the delicious fun happens when two extremes come together: talented chefs and kitchen rookies. They are teamed up together to see which culinary odd couple can create the best restaurant-quality dish. But there’s one serious catch — the chefs can’t step foot into the kitchen. The chefs can only give their culinary expertise — step-by-step instructions on how to cook an amazing dish — through an earpiece that the rookie wears, all the while trying to keep their temper (and we don’t mean keeping eggs from curdling).

Jordan Andino (Harlow Sag Harbor), Devin Connell (Delica Kitchen), Craig Harding (Campagnolo), Rob Rossi (Bestellen) and Cory Vitiello (The Harbord Room) are the five talented chefs up for this challenge, all rooting for their rookie to win. But it’s not just their pride and reputation on the line — the winning chef decides the losing chef’s fate.
