Gordon Ramsay’s Next Level Chef is getting a U.K. version, set to air on ITV and ITVX.
Produced by Studio Ramsay Global, Next Level Chef is a one-of-a-kind culinary gauntlet challenge, billed as the toughest and most epic cooking contest on TV. The eight-part series is set within three unique kitchen spaces across three stories and almost 50 feet high.
Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s head of entertainment commissioning, said: “Next Level Chef is a dynamic, edge-of-your-seat cooking competition in a league of its own. We’re so excited to welcome Gordon back to the U.K. and get started on perhaps the most ambitious TV studio the world has to offer!”
Ramsay said: “Next Level Chef is off-the-chart Next-Level everything! A culinary competition that is epic on every level. From the size of the enormous structure to every challenge, every moment of jeopardy is huge. I want to see our chefs, social media stars, home cooks whatever their level, whatever their experience, show me what they can do. Whether they’re at the top cooking in the dream kitchen with every gadget and the finest ingredients or in the middle kitchen [with] good equipment, good ingredients but nothing fancy or—and this is where it gets really interesting—down in the basement kitchen, [with] super basic, minimal ingredients and leftover scraps that show me what you’re really made of!
Talent and tenacity will absolutely shine through, and someone will walk away with an equally Next-Level prize. I can’t wait to get started!”
