Chef Andre Rush will make the rounds to several eateries in Washington, DC, to assist them to overhaul themselves for the better in the newest unscripted culinary program. In the new series, the White House chef will seek out restaurateurs that need discipline and might benefit from his inventiveness in order to turn around their enterprises.
The program will consist of 10 episodes, with the chef visiting one restaurant in just 48 hours in each episode. The Kitchen Commando team will visit a crab-themed eatery that was previously an online hit in the season opener. Gordon Ramsay describes chef Andre Rush as a personal buddy, an exceptional chef who has served in the US army, in the Kitchen Commando trailer. He went on to say that he can assure viewers that “you don’t get much higher than that” in terms of standards.
“He also has the most massive arms I’ve ever seen in the culinary industry.”
The Kitchen Commando claims to have “seen some action” in Iraq and to have served four presidents. He’s set to embark on his “toughest task” yet in the new program, saving struggling businesses throughout America. He said in the trailer that “boot camp” is about to commence. Chef Andre Rush is shown having restauranteurs perform pushups, as well as offering them harsh love and inspiration as needed. Gordon Ramsay said in a press release that he got to spend time with Chef Rush and that his passion for the culinary business and his tale inspire any chef.
