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.
