Chef Richard Blais will be Christopher’s mentor in Season 2 of Next Level Chef. Spinosa expressed her love of cooking in an interview with Underground Long Island, saying:
“Cooking is an art because your canvas is simply placed in front of you – usually white. All your mistakes, as well as all your great achievements and perfections, will be on display. Just like any other type of artist.
More about The Next Class Chef Season 2
The structure of the second season of Next Level Chef will be similar to the first season, with additional challenges awaiting the contestants. The 18 chefs participating in the culinary competition will have to work in three different conditions in three different kitchens depending on their instructors. Gordon Ramsay, Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais, chef advisor, will try to exploit their full potential until they select the best members of their team. In each episode, the chefs must prepare a dish to please the judges and avoid being disqualified.
The winner of the season will be crowned the ‘Next Level Chef’, which will receive a cash prize of $250,000 and a year of mentorship from the jury.
Fox described the season as follows:
“The legendary epic food bar is returning to its famed stage. Each floor of the three-story home has a stunning kitchen. The ingredients complement the atmosphere, from the glitzy upstairs to the grim depths of the basement, as Gordon Ramsay believes that the ultimate measure of great chefs is not only what they can achieve in the best of conditions, but the miracles they can produce in worst conditions!”
The second season of Chefs Next Level will air on Fox on Sunday, February 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET, after the Super Bowl. It’s worth noting that after the first episode, the show will air every Thursday at 20:00 ET.
