HELL'S KITCHEN, a culinary boot camp that features a group of aspiring restaurateurs opening a top-class restaurant, overseen by world-renowned but terrifying chef GORDON RAMSAY, premieres Monday, May 30 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/ PT) on FOX.
A former pro-soccer-player-turned-Michelin-starred-chef, Ramsay has conquered London's haute cuisine scene. Now he's crossing the Pond to Los Angeles, to open the city's newest restaurant and discover – or create – the country's next culinary star.
Adapted from the wildly successful British short-run series of the same name, HELL'S KITCHEN will follow 12 competing chefs 24/7, capturing the fiery drama, intrigue and high emotion as the restaurant's opening night approaches. These ambitious hopefuls believe they have the drive, talent and desire to run their own restaurant, and they will be tossed into the cauldron, working under Ramsay and fighting for survival.
The participants may have varying culinary experience, whether as a burger flipper, a mother of six or a barbeque wiz, but one thing they all have in common is a passion for food. Each week, Ramsay will slice and dice the contestants, keeping those who possess the right combination of ingredients to ensure success.
