Gordon Ramsay is recognisable around the world thanks to presenting TV programmes about competitive cookery and food, such as the British series Hell’s Kitchen, The F Word, Ramsay’s Best Restaurant, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon’s Great Escape, Gordon Behind Bars and Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course, along with the American versions of Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef and Hotel Hell.
However, he is also a renowned chef and has been awarded 15 Michelin stars in total and currently holds 14. In January 2013 he was inducted into the Culinary Hall of Fame.
Scottish by birth, Gordon was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, from the age of five. An early injury prematurely put an end to any hopes of a promising career in football and he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management.
Ramsay’s first years in the kitchen were spent training under culinary luminaries such as Marco Pierre White and Albert Roux in London, after which he moved to France. There he worked in the kitchens of Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon for three years to enhance his expertise in classic French cooking. In 1993, Ramsay became chef of the newly opened Aubergine in London where, within three years, the restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars.
Ramsay’s first book, Passion for Flavour, was published in 1996. A number of hugely successful books have followed. A list of all of them below:
