Gordon Ramsay’s Studio Ramsay and Fox Alternative Entertainment have partnered to serve up the competition format Next Level Chef.

Slated for Fox’s 2021-22 season, the series is billed by Fox as the “next evolution in cooking competition,” as contestants battle it out in a three-story high “culinary gauntlet.”

Each floor contains a different kitchen — from the glistening top floor to the challenging bottom of the basement, with ingredients to match the environment.

Joined by chefs Nyesha Arrington and Gino D’Acampo, Ramsay (pictured) and his co-mentors will each recruit a group of talented cooks to take under their wings. In the end, just one chef will walk away with the US$250,000 prize.

Next Level Chef is a unique format that could only come from the delightfully brilliant culinary mind of Gordon Ramsay,” Rob Wade, president, alternative entertainment and specials, Fox Entertainment, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be happier to bring Gordon, Nyesha and Gino competing together on what is a new and innovative way into a cooking competition series.”

The format was developed by the Studio Ramsay team, led by chief creative officer Lisa Edwards and creative director of development Fernando De Jesus. Ramsay, Edwards and Matt Cahoon serve as executive producers.

Next Level Chef is the most recent cooking competition greenlit at the network. In April, Fox slated the baking competition Crime Scene Kitchen, produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and Fly on the Wall (Big Brother) and hosted by actor/comedian Joel McHale.
