About Gordon Ramsay
Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon,
England. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a
promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a
course in hotel management. His dedication and natural talent led him to
train with some of the world’s leading chefs, such as Albert Roux and
Marco Pierre White in London, and Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon in France.
In 1993 Ramsay became chef of Aubergine in London, which within three
years, was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay
set up his first wholly owned and namesake restaurant, Restaurant
Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade
in the culinary world – three Michelin stars. Today, Restaurant
Gordon Ramsay is London’s longest-running restaurant to hold this
award, and Ramsay is one of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three
Now internationally renowned, multi-Michelin-starred Ramsay has opened a
string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to the
United States. These include two ventures in Doha, Qatar that opened in
2012; four restaurants in Las Vegas (Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at The
LINQ Promenade, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay
Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay Burger at Planet
Hollywood Resort & Casino), Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill in Atlantic City
and Bread Street Kitchen in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai. In the UK,
the Gordon Ramsay Group has opened Union Street Café, London House,
Heddon Street Kitchen and two further maze Grills, one of which is
located on the former Aubergine site on Park Walk, Chelsea.
The next-generation multi-media production company STUDIO RAMSAY has a
joint venture with All3Media to develop and produce both unscripted and
scripted television shows, creating new formats and innovative
programming that includes a scripted arm focused on food-related themes,
and development of new talent on a global front. The catalogue of
programs that Ramsay has worked on historically with All3Media via One
Potato Two Potato, together with new original content he’s currently
developing, make for a unique and dynamic production and distribution
partnership. Studio Ramsay’s first production, live food variety show
THE F WORD WITH GORDON RAMSAY, premieres later this month on FOX. Its
first daytime cooking series, “Culinary Genius,” premiered this spring
on ITV in the U.K. and Ramsay’s ITV documentary series will premiere
later this year.
Renowned for highly successful and award-winning original programming,
multi-Michelin star chef Gordon Ramsay produces TV shows on both sides
of the Atlantic seen by audiences worldwide, including his FOX shows
MASTERCHEF, MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, HELL’S KITCHEN, MASTERCHEF CELEBRITY
SHOWDOWN and the upcoming THE F WORD WITH GORDON RAMSAY, as well as
Bravo’s “Best New Restaurant” and Food Network’s competition series
“Food Court Wars.” In the U.K., he’s produced “Gordon Ramsay Behind
Bars” and “Gordon Ramsay’s Great Escape” for Channel 4; food biography
and nostalgia series “My Kitchen” for UKTV’s Good Food Channel; two
instructional cookery series, “Ultimate Home Cooking” and “Ultimate
Cookery Course” for Channel 4; and the first two seasons of “Matilda and
the Ramsay Bunch,” starring Tilly Ramsay for U.K. children's channel
CBBC, all under his One Potato Two Potato banner.
Ramsay has a global partnership with WWRD (Waterford, Wedgwood, Royal
Doulton), which offers quality home and lifestyle products.
In 2014, Ramsay and his wife, Tana, set up the Gordon and Tana Ramsay
Foundation to make a meaningful difference to charities that are
important to them. The Foundation is currently partnered with Great
Ormond Street Hospital, one London’s most respected Children’s Hospitals.
