A show all about real businesses & real opportunities

Australia's newest entrepreneur hopefuls, who looked to turn their dreams into reality, put everything on the line in Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars, a brand-new series for the 9Network, which aired on Channel 9 and 9Now.

Breaking into the multi-billion-dollar food and beverage industry could be an impossible feat unless you were lucky enough to have some big investors behind you.

Global culinary superstar and CEO Gordon Ramsay was pitted against Australian business mogul Janine Allis. With an investment of $250,000 each, they were on the hunt for Australia’s most exciting and innovative new food and drink ideas to mentor and invest in.
