Gordon Ramsay never sits still and his latest food show ‘Uncharted’ sees him traverse four continents in search of previously unknown food experiences.
Getting off the beaten track in order to discover unusual ingredients and food cultures Ramsay, according to a press release from National Geographic, gets busy “unlocking a culture’s culinary secrets through exploration and adventure with local food heroes, no matter where they may lead him; tracking down high-octane traditions, pastimes, and customs that are specific to the region in hopes of discovering the undiscovered.”
The last year in food entertainment has seen a host of food shows try to step into a very large Anthony Bourdain-shaped hole in the schedule. Ramsay is a bankable and very likeable chef that has the entertainment experience to carry this type of vehicle. While the TV chef has come in for some criticism for allegedly trying to ape Bourdain's television style, the truth is Ramsay was doing this kind of extreme travel/cooking show in the UK decades ago.
“My passion for adventure has made me not only a better chef but also a fearless apprentice of all cultures, which makes it so exciting for me to work with National Geographic, who’ve been taking exploration to the limit for their entire storied history,” said Ramsay when the show was announced last July.
Uncharted will air on National Geographic on Juy 21.
