"Chef Hunter" (Food Network) is a reality docu-series that features culinary recruiter Carrie McCully providing a few promising out-of-work chefs the opportunity to audition for a coveted Executive Chef position in some of the top restaurants around the country. ]

In each episode the select chefs are put to the ultimate test as the restaurant's general manager and owner challenge the chefs' culinary skill, business acumen and tenacity required to be an Executive Chef. The chosen chefs then experience the most pressure-filled night of their lives, as they get the chance to run the restaurant for the night. For one Chef, getting the job could change their own fate and the fortunes of a top restaurant.

In the season premiere, the general manager of an acclaimed restaurant in Los Angeles calls on Chef Hunter Carrie McCully to fill the executive chef position that recently became available, to keep the reputation that the restaurant has worked hard to earn. After looking at hundreds of applicants, the search has narrowed to the restaurant's top three candidates. After a quick face-to-face meeting, each of the chefs is asked to create one original appetizer as well as a signature hamburger for the menu. Appetizers are one of the most profitable items on the menu, so as the chefs put their unique spin on these dishes, they must keep food costs in mind. After the chefs present their dishes, he decides that one chef is not the right fit for his restaurant. The remaining two chefs are handed the keys to the restaurant for one night as they are given the task to create their own menu, work with the staff, and serve a packed house of the restaurant's best customers. After a night of enduring the pressure of running the kitchen and interacting with customers, Carrie and the general manager evaluate the finalists, with one chef earning the title of Executive Chef at the exclusive restaurant.
