Hurling slurs have kind of become a hallmark for Gordon.
Career, Awards, and Nominations
Gordon’s first job as a chef was at Wroxton House Hotel which he left and transferred to London where he joined Marco Pierre White at Harveys. On the suggestion of Marco, he began working at Le Gavroche in Mayfair. He later became the right hand of Albert Roux at Hotel Diva, a ski resort.
He, in hope for better prospects, moved to the “Fashion Capital” of the world, Paris, to work with two Michelin-starred chefs, Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon. On his return to London, Marco invited him back to work with him giving a 10% of the total business. Gordon took it, but the turning came when he left it due to some dispute and eventually started his own restaurant “Restaurant Gordon Ramsay.” He opened up a number of restaurants across the globe including in New York and Tokyo.
The celebrity chef moment came when he appeared on “Faking” in 2001. The muchn-deserved fame came with “Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares” and “Hell’s Kitchen” which ran for a number of series. Soon the US version of the same came expanding his name beyond Britain.
He also produced along with judging the US version of “MasterChef.” He also did a culinary travelogue program “India, Gordon’s Great Escape.”
Gordon has a lot of feathers in his hat. He is a “Catey Award” winner, and he was awarded the “Officer of the Order of the British Empire,” and there are many “Michelin Stars” to his name.
