How does Next Level Chef work?

For Next Level Chef, Gordon designed a one-of-a-kind culinary gauntlet with three stories, each floor contains a different kitchen. From the glistening top floor state-of-the-art kitchen to the challenging bottom-level basement kitchen, the equipment and ingredients match the environment, because Gordon believes the true test of great chefs is not only what they can do in the best of circumstances, but what kind of magic they can create in the worst.

The cooks are divided into three teams—one headed by Gordon, one by Nyesha and one by Richard—and each week each team competes to produce the best dish, which puts them in the top-level kitchen. The losing team, of course, has to cook its way out of the basement.
