Gordon Ramsay is truly going global in his forthcoming National Geographic television series Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted. According to the official announcement, Uncharted will air in 43 languages in 171 different countries.
“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," he said in a statement.
That means, when filming starts this fall, he's got a list of adventures planned and some of them admittedly scare him, like the plan to go tarantula hunting in Cambodia. For a man who has made a TV career out of helping people improve via his unique brand of tough love slash savagery, don't expect him to be coddled.
Gordon will also connect with notable food activists and chefs in each area and throw down in kitchens in friendly challenges about regional dishes where all the pressure will be on him in his show, envisioned as a mash-up between a cooking series, an on the road show and a competitive battle.
Although the show is called Uncharted, the travel component certainly evokes flavors of a beloved globe-trotting chef with an Emmy-level food-and-travel show: Anthony Bourdain.
