Quickfire Challenge: Michael Chiarello welcomes the cheftestants to Napa Valley. Their challenge is to cook a dish that features grapes, but they have to cook it in 30 minutes on a moving train, and the prize is a Prius. Michael wins with a stuffed grape leaf topped with a grape branch that he used as a skewer to serve a grape and scallop kebab. Chiarello is impressed with the "story" he told, although it seems like the story was just, "GRAPES!" But he won the car.
Elimination Challenge: The chefs have to cook from 100% local ingredients and cater the Rutherford Hill Winery's annual Crush Party for 150 people. They have to create two dishes: one vegetarian, and one using a local protein, and they'll have five hours to cook.
