Celebrity chef and executive producer Gordon Ramsay (pictured) has inked another two-year contract with U.S. broadcaster Fox.

The short-tempered Michelin star chef announced via Twitter that he will stay in Fox’s kitchen to serve up at least 80 hours of programming.

Introduced to American audiences in 2005 with Fox’s spin-off of ITV’s restaurant-themed series Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay has since gone on to front the culinary competition formats MasterChef and off-shoot Masterchef Junior  as well as the hospitality rescue series Hotel Hell. 

MasterChef’s sixth season currently airs on the network and was recently renewed for a seventh season. MasterChef Junior was renewed for its fourth season earlier this year. The two series are produced in partnership between Endemol Shine North America and Ramsay’s One Potato Two Potato.

Hell’s Kitchen – which recently wrapped its 14th season is produced by ITV Studios America and A. Smith & Co. Productions. Hotel Hell is produced by One Potato Two Potato.

Ramsay pulled the plug on the decade-long UK/U.S. culinary reality series Kitchen Nightmares last June.
