Gordon Ramsay will headline another culinary series at Fox. “Next Level Chef,” announced Monday by the network, will follow Ramsay and his co-mentors and elite chefs Nyesha Arrington and Gino D’Acampo as they recruit a group of talented chefs, take them under their wing and see who will become the next superstar in the food world.
Ramsay designed a culinary challenge on an unprecedented stage: a tower of more than three floors, each floor containing a different kitchen. From the glittering top floor to the difficult bottom of the basement, the ingredients will adapt to the environment. Contestants will include line cooks, in-home chefs, social media stars, food truck owners and more as they compete for a prize of $ 250,000.
“’Next Level Chef’ is a unique format that can only come from the deliciously brilliant culinary mind of Gordon Ramsay,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Entertainment. “We couldn’t be happier to bring Gordon, Nyesha and Gino together to compete in what is a new and innovative way in a series of cooking competitions.”
“This is the next evolution of cooking contests,” added Ramsay. “It’s big and it’s bold, and I can’t wait for people to see it.” The television personality and Emmy-nominated chef started at the bottom of the kitchen food chain, washing dishes at a local takeout restaurant before rising well above the kitchen hierarchy.
The next series in the 2021-2022 season is produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and Ramsay’s multimedia production banner Studio Ramsay. The project was developed by the Studio Ramsay team led by Creative Director Lisa Edwards and Creative Director of Development Fernando De Jesus. Ramsay, Edwards and Matt Cahoon are the executive producers.
Ramsay is the only culinary talent on air in the United States with four prime-time nationwide network shows, hosting and executive production “Hell’s Kitchen”, “Masterchef”, “Masterchef Junior”, “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back “and” Gordon Ramsay’s American Road Trip.
