Gordon Ramsey

Gordon Ramsay, a symbol of success and dedication, is an extraordinary example of success in the culinary, television, and literary industry. Thanks to his talent, passion, and commitment, he has achieved significant milestones (reaching a peak of 16 MICHELIN Stars) and has left an indelible mark in the world of gastronomy.

Gordon James Ramsay was born in 1966 in Johnstone, Scotland. He was raised in England in Bishopton, in the Stratford-upon-Avon area, in a complicated family situation. At the age of 16, he moved to an apartment in Banbury. Ramsay's interest in cooking emerged at 19, when he began studying hotel management at North Oxfordshire Technical College.

Gordon's adventure in the world of gastronomy began in the 80s, where he worked for Albert Roux at the starred “Le Gravoche” and Marco Pierre White in the stressful environment of the famous restaurant “Harvey’s.” The experience gained with the two internationally renowned chefs encouraged him to deepen his knowledge of French cuisine.

At 23, Gordon moved to France, collaborating with MICHELIN-Starred chefs like Guy Savoy, his greatest mentor, and Joël Robuchon.

Partly overwhelmed by stress after 3 years of working in the big Parisian kitchens, Ramsey spent 1992 as a personal chef on the private yacht Idlewild, which allowed him to travel to Italy and learn about Italian gastronomy.

In 1993, Ramsay held the role of chef at the restaurant “Aubergine” in London, which obtained Two MICHELIN Stars in just three years.

In 1996, Ramsay married Tana Hutcheson, with whom he had five children, and a year later he started his group of restaurants, “Gordon Ramsay Restaurants.”

In 1998 Ramsay embarked on an extraordinary rise in the world of catering, opening his first restaurant, “Gordon Ramsay” in Chelsea, which quickly became a gastronomic landmark earning Three MICHELIN Stars, the last one in 2001.

Since then, Ramsay has opened numerous other successful restaurants in London, including the starred “Pétrus” in Knightsbridge, in Paris, including the two Michelin-starred restaurant “Le Pressoir d'Argent” in Bordeaux and the starred “Au Trianon” in Versailles, and all over the world, for a total of 35 just in Britain, 10 in the USA, 3 in Dubai, 2 in France and one in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Sanya (China) and Seoul.

Ramsay has received numerous awards and honors for his talent. In 2000 he was named the UK's best chef at the Catey Awards, and in 2006 he received the title of Independent Restaurateur of the Year and the Order of the British Empire (OBE) conferred by Queen Elizabeth II.

Ramsay's television career began to take shape in 1999 with the miniseries Boiling Point, followed by popular shows like "Hell's Kitchen", "Kitchen Nightmares" and "MasterChef". Ramsay has managed to maintain a balance between his career as a chef, author, and television personality, commuting between Los Angeles and London.

In addition to catering and television, Gordon has collaborated with major brands in the field of home goods and lifestyle, participating in a global partnership with WWRD. In 2014 he founded with his wife Tana the “Gordon and Tana Ramsay Foundation”, aimed at supporting charities dealing with sick children.

In 2016 he launched Studio Ramsay, a production company dedicated to the development of television programs for the UK, the US, and digital platforms.

Ramsay's ventures are not limited to cooking: he is a prolific writer with books that have become worldwide bestsellers, and he has also had success in the video game industry with "Restaurant DASH with Gordon Ramsay". In 2020, Forbes magazine ranked Ramsay 19th in the ranking of celebrities with the highest earnings. Gordon continues to perpetuate his career in various sectors.
