Celebrity chef Colin Fassnig says his life went from famine to feast

Chef Colin Fassnedge says he saw ‘horrible’ and ‘dangerous’ restaurants while filming new series Kitchen Nightmares — while stepping into Gordon Ramsay’s shoes on Australian reboot

Two years ago, he was rising high as a celebrity chef.

Then the pandemic hit and Colin Fassnage lost five jobs in one day.

Now, the Irish-born TV reality star says he’s back and busier than ever, juggling roles on Kitchen Nightmares Australia and Channel Seven’s My Kitchen Rules.

In February, it was revealed that Coleen will be making some big shoes as host of Kitchen Nightmares Australia.

The series originally rose in popularity in the UK and US while celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay was in the lead.

When he’s not on the road with this hit show, the fast, curly-haired speaker is filming episodes of another cooking TV success, My Kitchen Rules.

Colin said:

“Some of the kitchens I’ve seen have been horrible,” Colin said. He added that he loved doing the show, where each episode would try to guide a failed restaurant to success

The Dublin-born celebrity chef says doing an MKR is like stepping into an “old shoe”.

“I’ve been doing this show for 10 years and it’s good to be back,” the 46-year-old told the Daily Telegraph in an interview on Saturday.

Colin added that he loved doing Kitchen Nightmares, in which in each episode he would try to steer a failed restaurant to success.

“Some of the kitchens I saw were horrible,” he said.

While not as high-voltage as the famous Gordon Ramsay, Colin offered a hint of what fans can expect.

“I would say how badly cooked food is dangerous,” he said sarcastically. And I let them do that [the contestants] I know that’

Colin insists he will not display the same short temper as his British counterpart.

The Irish-born restaurateur said: ‘If you’re looking for a show that screams and yells in people’s faces, that’s not what I want to do.

Colin said:

“I don’t think anyone wants to see me go in at this time with the hospitality industry on its knees and screaming and yelling at people,” Colin said. I’m much older now. Maybe 10 years ago I was like this, but not now. Gordon was photographed at Kitchen Nightmares

“I don’t think anyone wants to see me go in at this time with the hospitality industry on its knees and screaming and yelling at people.”

Kitchen Nightmares ran in the UK for five seasons from 2004 to 2007, before returning for one season in 2014.

It also ran from 2007 to 2014 in the United States on Fox.
