The ten recruits take a trip to Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse, where, in their first Skill Drill, they must learn to execute five fundamental knife cuts. Then each Chef teaches their team a Teppanyaki-style dish, cooked directly on a blazing hot flattop grill. The recruits' results are varied, to say the least. Back at Boot Camp for the Main Dish Challenge, the Chefs demo only a few key techniques for a dish; the rest of the recipe is posted on the blackboard. The Chefs repeatedly emphasize that a good cook must read and know their recipe completely. So, halfway through prep, to test whether the recruits have followed their directions, the Chefs surprise them by erasing the recipe!
