Gordon Ramsay is keeping the kitchen open: Fox just gave Ramsay a season two pickup for his summer competish “Masterchef.”

“Gordon Ramsay is an incredible talent and the biggest culinary star on television today, so we’re very happy to have Gordon and ‘Masterchef’ back for another season on Fox,” said Fox alternative prexy Mike Darnell. According to Fox, “Masterchef” repped the summer’s No. 1 new series with adults 18-49.

“It’s amazing and refreshing to see how much passion and raw talent there is from amateur home cooks across America,” Ramsay said. “It’s extraordinary the amount of energy and excitement the show brought in season one.”

The season one finale of “Masterchef” airs at 8 p.m. Sept. 15 on Fox. Episode will feature four finalists battling for $250,000 and a cookbook-publishing deal.
