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; three restaurants in Las Vegas (Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris,
Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at
Planet Hollywood), 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.
Ramsay received an OBE (Order of the British Empire awarded by Queen
Elizabeth II) in 2006 for services to the industry.
Ramsay has also become a star of the small screen both in the US and
internationally, with top-rated FOX shows airing in more than 200
territories worldwide including, HELL’S KITCHEN, MASTERCHEF, MASTERCHEF
CELEBRITY SHOWDOWN, MASTERCHEF JR., and HOTEL HELL, as well as UK shows:
GORDON BEHIND BARS, ULTIMATE COOKERY COURSE, GORDON’S GREAT ESCAPES and
GORDON RAMSAY: SHARK BAIT. His highly rated KITCHEN NIGHTMARES series
ran for 10 seasons worldwide. He is also a published author of a number
of books, many of which have become bestsellers around the world, most
notably his autobiography, Roasting in Hell’s Kitchen.
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.
