A show all about real businesses & real opportunities

Aussies, looking to turn their food dreams into reality, will put everything on the line in Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars, a brand-new series coming soon to the 9Network.

Global culinary superstar and CEO Gordon Ramsay will be pitted against Australian business mogul Janine Allis. Both investing $250,000, they’re on the hunt for Australia’s most exciting and innovative new food and drink ideas, to mentor and invest in.

Having to survive and compete in various high-pressure challenges, contestants will need to prove they have what it takes when it comes to all the essential facets needed in running a successful business.
