Nine Upfront 2023: Gordon Ramsay teams up with Nine for Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars

Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars nine upfront

• Gordon Ramsay and business mogul Janine Allis will mentor and guide competing teams

Nine has teamed up with culinary superstar, Gordon Ramsay to bring Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars to Channel 9 and 9Now in 2023.

In a brand-new series for the 9Network, CEO Gordon Ramsay and business mogul Janine Allis will mentor and guide competing teams in Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars.

Already broadcasting in the UK and US, the Australian version will bring an Aussie flair to the format. 

Breaking into the multi-billion-dollar food industry can be an impossible feat unless you’re lucky enough to have some big investors. Gordon and Janine are on the hunt for Australia’s most exciting and innovating new food ideas – searching high and low for the next food star to mentor and invest in.

Contestants will need to pitch their concept to win a spot in the competition, before surviving high-pressure challenges and intense grilling from two reigning food stars, determined to see if they’ve got the raw ingredients to become Food Stars.

Battling it out for their place at the top will be Gordon and Janine’s competing teams – 14 potential food stars who are ambitious, competitive and creative. With one winning idea from each team to take home a cash prize to kickstart their new business, everything is on the line.

They’ll need to prove they have what it takes when it comes to service, marketing, branding and event management.

Chief sales officer at Nine Michael Stephenson told Mediaweek: “He [Ramsay] will definitely be in all of the episodes. It’s likely it hasn’t been finalised in terms of total number of episodes, but this show generally runs over a four to five-week period.”

Produced by Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay company) and Studio Ramsay Global (a FOX Entertainment company), Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars is a bold and competitive series, based on a format distributed by All3Media International, already broadcasting in the UK and US and coming to the 9Network in 2023.
