Fox and Gordon Ramsay team for reality series 'Master Chef'

November 3, 2009 |  6:18 am

Hk6_gr_0150.r Fox has ordered up "Master Chef," a new reality show that will pit amateur cooks against one another in a battle for culinary supremacy.

Gordon Ramsay, star of the network's other food-centric hours, "Hell's Kitchen" and "Kitchen Nightmares," will co-produce and headline "Master Chef," which is based on a format that originated in the U.K. but more recently shattered ratings records in Australia.

In the Australian version of the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter, contestants -- home cooks, not professional chefs -- audition by creating a dish for a panel of three judges to earn spots as semifinalists. The remaining contestants compete each week by way of team-based and individual cooking challenges until only one remains.

A premiere date has not yet been set. Reveille and Ramsay's One Potato Two Potato will produce.
