A hand is found jammed in a meat-grinding at a big facility. The rest of the body is in tiny pieces. Catherine manages to recover these by disassembling the grinder. Fingerprints reveal that the decease was a chef at a 5-star restaurant. Another case investigated by Sara and Nick involves an apparent suicide of a woman. The lack of hesitation cuts in the deceased left wrist leads Sara to believe that she was murdered.

The episode takes several cues from Anthony Bourdain
's autobiography "Kitchen Confidential," such as the flicking of blood around the kitchen after cutting oneself and the phrase "don't touch my knife, don't touch my johnson." The notion of someone being murdered in the kitchen and a chef butchering the corpse for disposal had previously been featured in Bourdain's first novel "Bone in the Throat." See more
