Friday, September 16 in Here it all starts


Early in the morning, Ethan fears that Chief Teyssier will dismiss him from the institute. Axel then points out to him that his uncle is going to make a decision based on his mother’s revelations. He also tells her that he doesn’t need school to cook since he is very good at it. However, the Cardone son knows full well that with his reputation, he will not be able to integrate prestigious establishments if he is fired. For his part, the young man would like to distance himself from his mother because she is too demanding. He also thought that by integrating the institute, he could have had his own space, which is unfortunately not the case.

At the same time, Chef Teyssier has finally decided to keep Ethan at the institute, which particularly annoys Clotilde. Indeed, the headmistress points out to him that a student still ended up in the hospital because of him, but Emmanuel maintains that the accident took place outside the establishment. Then, Antoine explains to him that the student will be screened every week and if it turns out to be positive one day, he will be fired. The principal also thinks that they must protect him from his abusive mother and that the institute will impose on him a framework with a more positive environment to get out of it.

A little later in the amphitheater, Teyssier reveals to the students that the chef Cardone gave doping products to her son. He announces to them that she is therefore no longer welcome at the institute and that her module stops now. Plus, he’s decided that Ethan can stay, as long as he submits to weekly screenings. And that’s not all, first and second year students will no longer have lessons together. For his part, Tom is not at all satisfied and makes it known. Emmanuel tells him that if he is not happy, he can follow the chef Cardone. After all, no one is holding him back.

Chef Cardone then thanked the director. He tells her that he knows full well that she has nothing to do with this doping story, but he still wants to make her understand that she is not innocent for all that. Indeed, he knows her methods and knows that she had to push her son to his limits for the sole purpose of making him the best. The chief urges her to be careful since she could damage her son’s talent by force. However, Annabelle doesn’t care about her opinion.

Meanwhile, Axel finally manages to reconcile with Solal for his greatest happiness. he then meets Samia who asks him for news of Ethan. The young woman regrets her behavior the day before and unfortunately does not know how to fix things. At that moment, they come across Chief Cardone. The student takes her courage in both hands and tells him that nothing justifies mistreating her son.

Later, Ethan makes a shocking revelation to his mother: he has been doping every day for several years now. The young man admits that he cannot stand the pressure she puts on his shoulders and regrets never having been up to it for her. Annabelle is then flabbergasted, she was far from suspecting her discomfort. She assures him with great emotion that he is very talented and that he does not need to take amphetamines to become a great chef. Ethan is very happy to hear it since it’s not in his habits. She then promises him to work on it.

At the end of the day, Ethan finds Samia. The young man knows that she has taken her side in front of her mother, which means that she is still worried about him. The two students then start teasing each other again.


Chef Meyer admits to the young chefs that she is actually in charge of the first module of the master’s degree and that she will accompany them in the creation of their own project. Rose reveals the terms to them: they have one week to offer an emblematic dish with a strong restaurant concept. They will then choose the best proposal and they will have to work from this one together to refine the concept, create the map and form a brigade. And they have a big surprise, the best idea will become concrete, since an ephemeral restaurant will be installed in the park of the institute on this occasion.

A little later, chef Meyer reproduces one of her signature dishes in front of them. She reveals to them that she developed it in just a weekend after years of failures. She was carried during her creation by the emotion she felt when her father died. The chef then explains to them that it is their emotions that will make them unique in the kitchen. She is also looking forward to discovering them more through the dishes they are going to offer her.

Anaïs, Salomé and Charlène do not think they are capable of making an emblematic dish in such a short time. They also think back to Mehdi who took months to create his signature dessert when he already had a very good level. For his part, Enzo points out to them that they must get out of their comfort zone.

At the end of the day, Anaïs and Salomé share their fears with Rose. Young chefs don’t want to make a bad impression on Chef Meyer. They then ask him to delete the module on the emblematic dish. However, Rose categorically refuses and tells them that the master is made for professionals, which means that they must know how to adapt to all situations.


Guillaume is finally back at the institute. However, he did not come back to his post and made a resounding announcement: he resigned. Chief Teyssier does not intend to let him go, but the deputy headmaster retaliates immediately. He tells him that his little despot act will no longer work on him and that he no longer tolerates his dictator methods. Guillaume admits that he hasn’t been able to stand him for years and then ends up telling him to fuck off. Emmanuel is then in shock and gives him a day to pack his boxes.

A little later, Antoine admires Guillaume’s courage and would like one day to be able to tell his four truths to the director. He then wants to know if his colleague really wants to leave, which is the case. The assistant principal needs to see other things.

Guillaume then meets Kelly by chance. He is very happy to see her since he wanted to talk to her before leaving the institute. He confesses to her that he cared a lot for his mother and apologizes for his behavior of the last few weeks because he knows that he hurt her. However, despite her departure, he would very much like to keep in touch with her. Guillaume then makes a very nice statement to her, telling her that she is a wonderful and talented young woman. He is also convinced that she will become a great chef. They are both on the verge of tears.

Chef Armand arrives in turn. She would very much like to hear from him from time to time. They then recall the moment when they put their suitcases down at the institute years ago with their son. Guillaume confides to her that he spent his best years at the Auguste Armand school and that if he had to do it again, he would do it again without hesitation because she was the woman of his life. The ex-spouses weep bitterly. And he then promises her that he will always be there for her.
