In the second episode, guest Chef Bernard See teaches them how to prepare their first dish, Mesclun salad, a French salad made of seven types of vegetables.The second dish is aglio olio, followed by fried rice.
The episode shows the participants hard at work in the kitchen, and they will learn up to nine dishes. This will culminate in a dinner showcase.
There are a few funny moments as contestants goof up while cooking.
Criteria of Cookery
For the judging, 80 per cent is based on presentation, taste and hygiene, and the remaining 20 per cent come from a group of special guests and food bloggers who will be giving their comments.
Chefs with Heart was conceptualised by Josephine of Just Cinnamon. Celebrity chefs Willin Low and Heman Tan were roped in as guest trainers. The successful apprentices will be employed in one of the three chefs’ restaurants after the series.
