Last night the season premiere of Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars premiered on Fox. If you weren’t able to watch in real time, worry not. The show will be available to stream beginning tonight on Hulu – same format for coming weeks!
There isn’t a lot I can say at this point about what I did or said in my episode since I signed a very serious NDA, so I’ll do my best to just add a few minor details and let the show speak for itself.
I got a call from a big talent agent asking if I’d be interested in appearing in the capacity of a pizza consultant / pizza chef on a new Gordon Ramsay reality show? All I knew is that there was a “famous” pizza person involved and I would have to help them with their New York pizza. That’s about it. It was Monday and we were shooting on Friday. After a few telephone calls and emails, I agreed to do the appearance.
To make sure everything ran smoothly, I called a pizza friend, Ines Barlerin from Lupacotta, to be my sous chef for the shoot. We spent only one day on set shooting and were given very little time to prepare.
Lots more information to come but make sure to tune in and check out the show and I’ll be sure let you know when my episode is going to air via my Instagram feed.
