Gordon Ramsay            

Celebrity Chef, Restaurateur, Cookbook Author & Judge of FOX's "MasterChef"

Scottish by birth, Gordon was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, from the age of five. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in soccer, 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. He later moved to France to work in the kitchens of Guy Savoy and Joel Robuchon for three years, where he was able to enhance his expertise in classic French cooking. In 1993, Ramsay became chef of the newly opened Aubergine and within three years the restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars.

In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay set up his first wholly owned restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, in Chelsea. It was awarded three Michelin stars within three years of its launch and is now London’s longest running restaurant to hold this prestigious accolade. Over the next five years, Ramsay and his team launched some of London’s most high profile restaurants including Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s, Petrus at The Berkeley, The Grill Room and MENU at The Connaught and The Savoy Grill.

2003 saw the launch of Ramsay’s first international restaurant, Verre, located in the Dubai Hilton Creek Hotel. Gordon Ramsay Holdings now operate a number of restaurants across the globe in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Dublin, Doha, Paris, Tuscany, Sardinia and Melbourne.

Between 2004 and 2010, Gordon Ramsay Holdings launched a number of successful restaurants in London including Maze Grill, Plane Food at Heathrow T5, Murano, York & Albany and two pubs, The Narrow in Limehouse and The Warrington in Maida Vale.

One of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three Michelin Stars, Ramsay was awarded an OBE in 2006 for services to the hospitality industry.

Ramsay has also become a star of the small screen both in the UK and internationally with shows such as "The F Word," "Hell’s Kitchen" and "Gordon’s Great Escape." Gordon can currently be seen on "MasterChef," "MasterChef Juniors" and "Kitchen Nightmares."

Ramsay has also published a number of hugely successful books including his autobiography, Roasting in Hell’s Kitchen, and his most recent cookbook, Gordon Ramsay’s Home Cooking.

For the past two years, Gordon has landed on Forbes list of the “World’s Most Powerful Celebrities.”
