Synopsis >

Chef Marcel Vigneron and his company are hired by Dave Marino, President of the Los Angeles Country Firemen's Relief Association, in order to pay tribute to the organization's volunteers. After touring the firehouse with Jarrid Masse and Devon Espinosa (and getting to sample some genuine fireman cooking), Marcel heads back to the Quantum Kitchen to begin brainstorming the menu with his team. Marcel decides to focus the menu on his version of hearty firehouse food featuring inside-out chili (with gellified chilli peppers), langoustine shrimp cocktails (with five different types of cocktail sauce ranging from cocktail air to cocktail spheres), apple-smoked baby back ribs injected with apple gelatin, and a complex carrot cake that resembles a camp fire. Sasha, the party planner, transforms the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum into an upscale extravaganza complete with a stunning flaming table from which all the guests dine. At the end of the night, Marcel and team deliver a spectacular experience for the guests in what is possibly their most successful event to date.
