Future Food Stars episode 1: Gordon Ramsay searches for the UK’s most exciting new food and drink business, putting 12 entrepreneurs through a series of challenges as they compete to win his £150,000 investment. Tonight, Gordon invites his entrepreneurs to Cornwall, where he shocks them with a high-pressure individual challenge in which they must overcome their fears and put their faith in him.
Gordon also wants to see how they work in a team using the finest local produce, so challenges them to run food shacks on a beach. It might sound simple, but how will they cope when hundreds of hungry tourists descend on Newquay? The teams must show that they can meet Gordon’s exacting standards and scrutiny. Will they thrive under pressure or crumble as the orders come flooding in? Then, in the biggest test of all, they come face-to face with Gordon. There’s nowhere to hide as he grills them on their performance this week. Only the ones who impress will continue on this epic adventure.
