Gordon Ramsay filming next season of Next Level Chef in Ashford studios

The famously grumpy culinary king, Gordon Ramsay, has been filming his hit show Next Level Chef in Ashford studios.

Minister Simon Harris paid a visit to the studios to meet Mr. Ramsay and to see how production was going on the latest season of Next Level Chef, and we’re left wondering which is louder – the Dáil on a particularly rough day or Gordon’s own kitchen on a normal one?

Gordon Ramsay’s Next Level Chef  has been recording new episodes of an international cooking show in state of the art studios set in the a spectacular location in Ashford, Co.Wicklow.

Next Level Chef is a FOX Entertainment cooking show co-produced by an Irish independent production company BiggerStage and Studio Ramsay Global. It follows three talented chefs from all over the country as they compete with each other for the prestigious title of Next Level Chef.

Alongside Mr. Ramsay will be American celebrity super-chefs Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais.

This new studio development is the biggest unscripted production hub in Ireland. The investment gone into this project is going to create long-term and business growth as well as create over 300 jobs locally. Local producion companies and creative talent alike will benefit greatly from said investment, continuing on the steady growth of television production in Ireland.

Minister Harris said, “The opportunity these studios present for Wicklow-based businesses is unmatched. It was thrilling to be in the studios today to meet the staff and crew producing the show as well as meeting the famous and world renowned chef Gordon Ramsay.

“I am delighted that FOX Entertainment chose to build their studio set in Ashford. They have invested millions of euros in developing a sustainable, purpose-built and state of the art sound stage which has already finished producing a US hit show and is now set to produce many more.

“This incredible studio will be of great benefit to local businesses who have already been working with the producers and growing their businesses.

“This also presents a great opportunity for Ireland to grow its TV production sector with Wicklow being centre stage.  

“On top of this, there is a great opportunity to develop the creative industry in Ireland here and to help drive the skills and talents of young Irish people working in this sector. As Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research Innovation and Science, this is something I am very much looking forward to and will back as much as I can.”

After a hugely popular first two seasons, Next Level Chef was renewed last May for a further two season which will be filmed in Ashford Studios.
