Also on the lineup, a reality TV show about women in the restaurant and food industry in Los Angeles

If you're already tired of the spring television lineup, Bravo has announced a hefty schedule for the upcoming year, including a renewal of Top Chef and Top Chef Masters.

Top Chef will be returning for its 11th season, Deadline reports, while Top Chef Masters gets its fifth season. No word on Top Chef: Just Desserts, which means we might be stuck with CBS's American Baking Competition.

In the meantime, two new shows are in the works, with Eat, Drink, Love debuting this summer. Formerly titled Sex and the Kitchen, the show follows around "single, successful, beautiful" ladies who are "connected to the restaurant and food industry in Los Angeles." "These ladies take on the traditionally male-dominated industry in their own way as they juggle a world where business always mixes with pleasure," the press release says (a rehash of Bravo's old release, apparently).

Bravo has also greenlit a new show produced with Gordon Ramsay, modeled after Ramsay's Best Restaurant. Titled America's Best Restaurant, the competition series travels across the country and asks America's best restaurants to compete against each other. Not sure how you're going to get Thomas Keller to battle Eric Ripert, but maybe it'll be a bit more lowbrow than that.

Join Ramsay on an Epic Journey Across the Globe to Peru, Laos, Morocco, Hawaii, Alaska and New Zealand

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted Premieres July 21, at 10/9c, on National Geographic

(WASHINGTON, DC/LOS ANGELES - JUNE 20, 2019) - Gordon Ramsay is taking food as far as it can go in National Geographic's new series Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, premiering Sunday, July 21, at 10/9c. The multi-Michelin-star chef and Ironman athlete embarks on a new exhilarating adventure around the globe.

From Peru, Laos and Morocco to Hawaii, Alaska and New Zealand, Ramsay will be roaring through valleys, diving into oceans, hiking through forests and scaling mountains in his relentless pursuit of culinary inspiration. Food and adventure programming is familiar ground for Ramsay, whose 2010 U.K. series for Channel 4, "Gordon's Great Escapes," saw the venerable chef explore the food culture of India and Southeast Asia.

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted follows Ramsay as he meets with indigenous people around the globe to learn about the cultures, dishes and flavors unique to each location. Every ingredient he harvests and dish he tastes will inspire a new recipe from scratch, created to represent the heart of that culture. Each episode concludes with Ramsay challenging himself with a local food legend by his side - putting his newfound skills to the test as they cook a feast together for the natives. For Ramsay, food is the gateway to culture, and every adventure is a portal into the soul of the people and place.

"It's been an amazing journey traveling off the beaten path with National Geographic and connecting with locals to learn and share incredible stories of unique traditions, delicacies and the extreme lengths it takes to harvest native ingredients," said Ramsay. "I've learned way more filming this series than I have in the last 10 years."

Among the adventures - culinary and otherwise - that Ramsay will take in the premiere season include:

· Trekking through a dense jungle in Laos to sample weaver ant eggs and diving through dangerous waters on the hunt for snails and giant water bugs

· Hunting for eels with his bare hands using traditional Maori techniques with a local fisherman by his side in New Zealand

· Working with local foragers to harvest Maui's deadliest catch with homemade tools and spearfishing with legendary free diver Kimi Werner in Hawaii

· Climbing a sheer rock face during a snowstorm with a local forager to harvest native herbs in Alaska

· Rappelling down a raging waterfall to meet with local mushroom hunters in Morocco

· Hanging off a cliff in pursuit of cactus worms - a delicacy in Peru

The series will also air globally in 172 countries and 43 languages. Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted is produced by Studio Ramsay. Additional episodes of the series have already been ordered ahead of the summer premiere, with production set to resume this fall.

The summer episodes include:

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted - Peru's Sacred Valley

Using his newly acquired skills, he cooks a banquet for monks at the local temple.

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted - Alaska's Panhandle

Yelp Los Angeles

Which one is better. I've been watching Hell's Kitchen on HULU. Unfortunately, Bravo is stingy in posting full episodes of Top Chef (Washington DC) Which one is better? Gordon vs. Tom? Padma vs. the lucky rare female judge?

Top Chef all the way. However, I agree with John, the earlier seasons of Top Chef were better. This season is the only one I got bored watching. Hell's Kitchen is just stupid. The over acting kills me. IT'S ONLY FOOD! Imagine if Gordon Ramsey was a president of a country? Heart attack the first day!

I have not seen later seasons so I can't judge if it's boring now.

The positive qualities of Top Chef-
1)Variety of challenges
2)Lots of food porn
3)Padma. Lakshmi.
4)Variety of locations- Las Vegas, NYC, Los Angeles
5)More creativity with the dishes

The positive qualities of Hell's Kitchen-
1)Some different challenges
2)How to run a restaurant
3)Some creativity with the food

And I'm all for the ORIGINAL Iron Chef.

Top Chef. Could never get into Hell's kitchen.

no comparison. TOP CHEF. just on the quality of chefs alone. those idiots on hell's kitchen are line cooks.

There is NO positives to Hells Kitchen.

Anna, none of the hells kitchen contestants know shit about running a restaurant and I wouldn't even say they're at all creative. It's really an excuse to have Gordan yell at people.

@Javier- That's why I'm peeved at BRAVO for not airing very many episodes of Top Chef on Hulu. It's a pain. Top Chef is sooo much better. Yet FOX has MOST Hell's Kitchen episodes online. Life is not fair. Not fair at all. *cries into gourmet cookbook*

I'm really getting into MasterChef. I like that it's all regular people.

Master Chef is pretty awesome. Gordon cusses, but not so much.

Original Japanese Iron Chef
Top Chef (any season)
Iron Chef America
Kitchen Nightmares
Hell's Kitchen
Then anything else..

Anna - I was watching episode 2 today and was tearing up every 5 minutes. Lol

Now I'll bring up an obscure one. "Chopping Block" with Marco Pierre White. He was Gordon's mentor, but now he and Gordon are NOT on speaking terms. Marco makes Gordon look angelic and saintly. It lasted only 3 (or 4) episodes on network NBC. the remainder was put online at HULU for awhile.

The greasy-haired, grouchy Marco makes Gordon look sanitary, kindly, and cool. Plus, Marco comes across as a cold psychopath.

Original Japanese Iron Chef
Top Chef (any season)
Iron Chef America
Kitchen Nightmares
Hell's Kitchen
Wow, this is almost the exact order I'd put these shows. All I'd change about this list is I'd switch Chopped with Kitchen Nightmares.

But as to the OP's question. if you want to watch a show about food, go with Top Chef. If you want to watch a show about a guy yelling and screaming, go with Kitchen Nightmares.

Since everyone is a fan of real og Iron Chef, I just have to let everyone know I'm watching it right now! I get the "Cooking Chanel" now, pretty rad. Ok, that's all.

The richest celebrity chefs in the world

Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, Rachael Ray, Giada De Laurentiis, and Guy Fieri are some of the most well-known celebrity chefs. These television personalities are known for their extensive line of cooking shows, branded kitchenware, and cookbooks.

Despite their fame and immense popularity, they make chump change compared to chef Ramsay. All five of these top chefs have a net worth that is less than $100 million.

One of the richest celebrity chefs on the planet is Ramsay, with an estimated net worth of $220 million. Wealthy Gorilla attributes his success to his “bluntness and fiery temper” saying, “Gordon carved out a career in the television industry around his culinary experience and personality, that people all over the world love to watch.”

Ramsay’s wealth is a combination of his many successful books, television shows, restaurants, sponsorships, and licenses. With worldwide recognition, his name is associated with fine dining and a superior work ethic.

Despite enormous wealth, Ramsay is not considered the richest celebrity chef. That title belongs to Chef Alan Wong, the co-founder of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, with several restaurants in Hawaii and one in Japan. Wong has a staggering net worth of $1.1 billion.

Top Chef's Boston season — and all its New England-themed challenges — can't last forever. While the Bravo juggernaut will wrap up its 12th season by the end of winter, several other forays into food television have yet to make their debuts. The anticipated Best New Restaurant , a collaboration between Bravo and Bon Appetit magazine, finally hits airwaves later this month with Top Chef's Tom Colicchio expanding his TV footprint. Familiar faces like Rick Bayless, Gordon Ramsay, and Andrew Zimmern return with new seasons of their long-running shows while folks like chef Michael Voltaggio and restaurant critic Giles Coren will debut entirely new programs dedicated to dining.

And in a rare food-world scripted series, chef Eddie Huang's memoir Fresh Off the Boat is ready to emerge as ABC's newest sitcom, exploring culture clashes and restaurant ownership in Orlando, Florida (it's also a landmark program for Asian-American representation on television). Here now, a look at what's coming up this winter for food-television fans:

The Great British Baking Show PBS, currently airing (check local listings)

Last month, PBS began airing beloved UK show The Great British Bake Off — renamed for stateside viewing as The Great British Baking Show— starting with series five, which originally aired on BBC One in summer 2014. So yes, while the winner has already been crowned (and thus, spoilers abound online), the competition is just heating up, with forthcoming episodes dedicated to the amateur bakers/contestants tackling bread, self-saucing desserts, and custard tarts. As in past seasons, cookbook author Mary Berry and baker Paul Hollywood act as judges check out a preview for this season's third episode, airing January 11, above.

MasterChef Junior FOX, currently airing

Have your fill of precocious child chefs yet? Less than a month after its season two finale crowned an 11-year-old the winner, Fox's MasterChef Juniorhas already returned for its third recap-ready installment. This season will mark the final appearance of restaurateur Joe Bastianich on the judging panel in November 2014, the famous-in-Italy television personality will leave the franchise after five years as a MasterChef and MasterChef Junior judge.

Wahlburgers A&E, premieres January 7

The rapidly expanding Wahlburgers chain returns to A&E in the form of the similarly named reality series that's equally about famous siblings and burger-flipping. The third season of the show follows the Wahlberg family (actors Mark and Donnie, Wahlburgers head chef/brother Paul) while they open restaurants and attend other professional/personal events. A press release promises Wahlburgers cameras are on-hand during Donnie Wahlberg's 2014 wedding to TV host Jenny McCarthy, and the couple now have their own spin-off reality show, naturally: It's called Donnie Loves Jenny, and it airs immediately following Wahlburgers.

Mexico: One Plate at a Time PBS, premieres January 9 (check local listings)

Chicago chef/most interesting man in the world Rick Bayless returns to Mexico for the 10th season of his public broadcasting show Mexico: One Plate at a Time. According to the Chicago Tribune, the show will celebrate its tin anniversary by focusing on up-and-coming chefs in Mexico City — including Jorge Vallejo, Jair Tellez, and Edgar Nunez — who take Bayless to their favorite local restaurants. As with all PBS shows, airtimes may vary but read up on the complete season 10 line-up at Bayless’s official site.

Restaurant StartupCNBC, premieres January 13

As promised, Joe Bastianich teams with Texas chef Tim Love for the second season of this reality competition that pits the two "investors" against each other to bid on fledging restaurant concepts. Like ABC's popular show Shark Tank, entrepreneurs enter the game seeking a financial investment in their concept during the first season, Bastianich invested his personal money in three restaurants/contestants, while Love threw his cash behind two. This year, Top Chef alum Antonia Lofaso joins the cast as an "expert insider" while restaurant owners from New Jersey to Oklahoma to San Francisco all compete.

Best New Restaurant Bravo, premieres January 21

After months in development, Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio is ready to branch out with a second Bravo show. Best New Restaurant, based on the UK's similarly named Gordon Ramsay show, follows Colicchio as he dines at 16 restaurants in four American cities: Austin, Los Angeles, New York City, and Miami. Each competing restaurant will be put through "a series of tests" including secret diners (eating on hidden cameras) and contrived challenges, with two ultimately selected to compete head-to-head for the "Best New Restaurant" title. Bon Appetit acts as the show's print media partner, with editor-in-chief Adam Rapoport and restaurants & drinks editor Andrew Knowlton acting as frequent "VIP diners."

Million Dollar Critic BBC America, premieres January 22

It's already aired in Canada, but the first season of Million Dollar Critic — the restaurant-focused travelogue of surly British critic Giles Coren — will make its stateside debut on BBC America later this month. Not unlike Best New Restaurant, the competition sees Coren visiting a slew of North American cities (including Philadelphia, Providence, Charleston, and Toronto) and dining at restaurants that strike his fancy in each. Ostensibly, the aim is for Coren to bestow one restaurant at each pit stop with a "million dollar review."

Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations Travel Channel, premieres January 26

Longtime Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern breaks away from his usual bread-and-butter — in this case, more likely to be offal and rare worm poop — in his newest Travel Channel spinoff, Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations . As the name suggests, Zimmern will seek out iconic dishes at popular travel destinations from Barcelona to Tokyo to Zurich, Switzerland: In the premiere episode, Zimmern documents the frying of loukamades and rolling of dolmades in Athens, Greece. Go, watch the latter in the clip above.

From Duff Till Dawn Food Network, premieres January 29

Ace of Cakes star/casino-restaurant owner Duff Goldman forgoes some sleep to host From Duff Till Dawn, a punny new competition show on the Food Network. Each episode will feature two cake decorating teams going head-to-head in an overnight competition to create an "outstanding and over-the-top" cake. In addition to host Goldman, a rotating line-up of judges promises appearances by director Kevin Smith, actress Haylie Duff, and a slew of other Food Network personalities.

Kids Baking Championship Food Network, premieres February 2

Duff Goldman is having a busy spring: In addition to From Duff Till Dawn, he'll team with sitcom star Valerie Bertinelli to host the Holiday Baking Championship spin-off Kids Baking Championship, aka Food Network's latest attempt to get in on some of Fox's sweet MasterChef Junior magic. During the four-episode "stunt," eight child bakers, ranging in age from 10 to 13, will compete in a series of baking and pastry challenges, with one ultimately crowned the Kids Baking Champion (and taking home $10,000 for their efforts).

Fresh Off the Boat ABC, preview February 4, premieres February 10

Chef/rabblerouser Eddie Huang's memoir Fresh Off the Boat hits ABC in this sitcom adaptation written and produced by Nahnatchka Khan (best known for Don't Trust the B—— in Apartment 23). As in the book of the same name, the show follows a young Eddie (played by Hudson Yang) as his family moves from Washington, DC to the more whitewashed Orlando, Florida in the '90s. As many have pointed out, the show marks the first sitcom to focus on an Asian-American family since Margaret Cho's 1994 show All-American Girl. "I feel like we've seen the Asian community being the butt of the joke, the nerdy friend at work or whatever," Khan told Entertainment Weekly. "It was important (for us) to tell real stories featuring real characters who are also funny, but not for the reasons that you have seen before." ABC will run a one-off "preview" on February 4 before the show settles into its usual Tuesday-night timeslot on February 10.

Hell's Kitchen Fox, premieres March 2

Gordon Ramsay's shoutiest ongoing series continues with its mind-numbing 14th season on Fox. According to the network's numbers, the 13th season of Hell's Kitchen — which crowned Florida chef La Tasha McCutchen the winner — marked the 200th episode/dinner service for the reality competition. And as per usual, the reality competition will pit professional chefs against each other in a quest to receive an executive chef job at one of Ramsay's restaurants, with an inflated salary/prize package to match.

Breaking Borders Travel Channel, premieres mid-March

Details are still scarce for this one, but a Travel Channel representative confirms Breaking Borders will premiere on the Travel Channel by mid-March, featuring Los Angeles chef/Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio visiting conflict zones for food-fueled discussions. Journalist Mariana van Zeller joins Voltaggio in his travels in order to "gather people from both sides of the conflict for an amazing meal and an animated discussion in search of common ground."

All-Star Academy Food Network, premieres in March

A familiar mis-mash of celebrity chefs — Curtis Stone, Alex Guarnaschelli, Bobby Flay, and Michael Symon — will act as mentors for a group of 10 amateur cooks hoping to rise through the ranks at All-Star Academy. In each episode, the home cooks will face a challenge that will eliminate them one by one (guest judges, not the mentors, determine who goes home) the cook left standing wins the $50,000 prize. Chopped's Ted Allen hosts.
