Best known for his kitchen tirades, Gordon Ramsay amassed a whopping 16 Michelin stars on his way to becoming one of the world’s most famous chefs. Currently, he holds 7 of the food industry‘s greatest honors and continues his search for the best of the best upcoming talents. The popular “Hell’s Kitchen” reality series from the world-class chef currently spans 20 seasons with a 21st season set for release in 2022.

Actually, Gordon Ramsay boasts quite the lengthy repertoire of TV Shows including “The F Word,” “Kitchen Nightmares,” “24 Hours to Hell and Back,” and “MasterChef.” That list is about to grow even bigger with the addition of his latest cooking competition show, “Next Level Chef.” Here’s what to know about the upcoming FOX series.

Let’s start with the series preview here:

Gordon Ramsay’s New Show Is Set on a Stage Over Three Stories High

“Next Level Chef” comes from the combined forces of Fox Alternative Entertainment and Studio Ramsay Global. It also takes a departure from Gordon Ramsay’s usual set-up on “Hell’s Kitchen.” Instead of cooking in an industrial high-class kitchen, this show forces contestants to work their way up from the trenches.

Chefs Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais take on mentor roles beside Gordon Ramsay himself. They seek to co-mentor a group of talented chefs by divulging their trade secrets and critique. The casting does not discriminate, drawing in competitors from every level. The full set of competitors includes food truck owners, social media influencers, home chefs, and line cooks. And if you’re asking “what’s at stake?” Well, a measly $250,000.

The three-story set-up is unlike anything fans have seen from a cooking competition series thus far. It requires contestants to really get creative with their craft. The bottom floor basement features the lowest grade of ingredients, including processed meats. As contestants work their way up the floors, they find themselves in the ultimate kitchen on the top floor. Here, they find supreme ingredients like truffle mushrooms.

The show is set for release on Sunday, January 2nd

A Spooky Halloween Recipe For Those Chilly Fall Nights
