The Chef's Protege BBC

This series just started on BBC
Chefs Tom Kitchin, Theo Randall, and Michel Roux Jr ( I love Michel Roux Jr) Each chef chooses four promising culinary students to mentor and train, eventually eliminating them down to one they feel is strong enough to be their Protege. Then each chef's pick battle for the title against each other.
Very non drama (well people get emotional but no trash talk stuff) and all about food and technique.
Did not say what the prize was but I'm guessing actually to be taken on by that Chef.
First couple of episodes thus far are a bit slow for me, but I'm waiting for Roux's turn at picking before everyone goes head-to-head.
Alas I watched the first episode but missed the last couple of days of this. Really enjoyed watching how Tom Kitchin handles the candidates. Thankfully there's Iplayer to help catch up.
