The hit culinary competition series “Hell’s Kitchen” s slated to return for its 19th season in a flashy new setting.

Chef Gordon Ramsay is taking the show to  Las Vegas,  a city that’s home to the world’s first Hell’s Kitchen restaurant at Caesars Palace. And, for the first time ever, 16 aspiring chefs from around the country will roll the dice in Sin City with the hope of winning big.

Among them is Milwaukee-based chef Adam Pawlak, owner of the popular fast casual pasta bar Egg & Flour. 

“I’ve waited over a year to share this news with all of you,” wrote Pawlak in a post today on Facebook. “I will be on the brand new season of Hell’s Kitchen…”
