Hell's Kitchen (US)

Hell's Kitchen (US)

Chef Gordon Ramsay is a former soccer player who is much better known for his top star ratings worldwide as a chef. Having a highly successful show in the UK, Fox brought him to their network with 12 hopeful apprentices vying to win a new restaurant of their own. If it were just about their cooking talents, it might be easy, but this isn’t called “hell’s kitchen” without the devil himself in the person of Ramsay, making incredible demands for perfection, something he himself provides as is proven by his many years of winning top worldwide awards for his magnificent cuisine and presentation. If you can stand the heat, welcome to Hell’s Kitchen.
