Gordon Ramsay teams up with Nine to search for Australia’s next Food Star

Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars nine upfront

First announced at Nine’s 2022 upfronts, the show finally has a premiere date.

First announced at Nine’s 2022 upfronts, Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars finally has set a premiere date of Tuesday 26 March.

Celebrity chef Ramsay will be pitted against Australian business mogul Janine Allis as Australia’s entrepreneur hopefuls pitch their food and drink ideas.

Ramsay and Allis will invest in their favourite 14 innovations, and mentor their founders.

The two teams will then have to fight to survive, competing in various high-pressure challenges. The losing team faces an intense grilling from Ramsay and Allis, resulting in an elimination.

The winning entrepreneur from each team will take home a cash prize of $250,000 investment, and a one-year mentorship program from either Ramsay or Allis.


“Viewers will see what Australia has in terms of Food Stars, and these businesses are going to surprise you,” Ramsay said.

Allis added: “Food Stars showcases some of these extraordinary concepts and products, and viewers will get to see just what they’re made of. It is one hell of a journey.” 

Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars is produced by Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay company) and Studio Ramsay Global (a FOX Entertainment company), for the 9Network. It will premiere on Tuesday 26 March 26 at 7:30 pm on Channel 9 and 9Now.
