About the Designer
Scottish by birth, Gordon was brought up in England after his parents moved south to Stratford-upon-Avon. Three years later he had given up professional football and gone back to college to complete an HND course in hotel management. After a couple of years Gordon moved to Le Gavroche to work alongside Albert Roux. This was followed by three years of working in France in the kitchens of Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon. Here he was able to enhance his expertise in classic French cooking. In June 2000 Gordon won The Chef of the Year Award at the Cateys. His restaurant Gordon Ramsay was voted the Top Restaurant in the U.K. with a score of 28 in the 2001 London Zagat Survey and was also named as the best Fine Dining Restaurant in the 2001 Harden's Guide. These ratings continued in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005. May 2004 saw Gordon Ramsay star in the Channel 4 series Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, a series of four one-hour programmes, later to be awarded a BAFTA. Shortly after this, Gordon was given two weeks to direct a group of celebrities towards Michelin standard cooking in the ITV series Hell's Kitchen. In November Gordon will open Maze Prague at the Hilton Old Town in Prague. Further international openings are planned for 2008 in Los Angeles, Paris and Amsterdam. 2008 will also be the year that Gordon opens a restaurant at the newly built Richard Rogers designed Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport. The restaurant, known as Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food, opened in March 2008.
