We loved to hate Ramsay in Hell’s Kitchen, we lost our appetite with his Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and sweated with the poor hotel owners while in his reality show Hotel Hell while furiously taught the hospitality lessons. However, in the new show, Gordon has been surprising us for three seasons with travelogues from various parts of our planet in which he found inspiration for his "kitchen". The show Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted enabled the viewers to discover cultures and customs they have never dreamed of.
"This year, I am especially pleased with the show because I have never been to most of the countries we visited. This time, the specialties of beautiful and unique countries such as Puerto Rico, Portugal, Croatia, Iceland, Mexico were on our "menu", and we were also in Texas. We really made a real culinary adventure ", said the famous chef, adding that he will remember some of the tastes he brought from this TV trip for the rest of his life.
"When you get to know the cuisine of a nation, you actually discover a lot about the culture, tradition, and customs of that nation. When we go to a country, we do everything as the people who live there do. The country that was a real revelation to me, precisely because it is located in Europe, and for many, it is a real exotic destination is Croatia. There, with the famous Croatian chef David Skok, I fished for conger eels and tried a great fish pate. I couldn't believe that this type of fish could give such a treat," Ramsay did not hide his enthusiasm.
In the current season, he brings us some of the most unusual "snacks" from all over the world. And these are some of his most and least favorite ones:
"I will remember the Icelandic specialty - fermented shark - for a long time because it is the hardest to "wash off the tongue". Basically, it is a ham of a special type of shark whose meat, in its raw form, even after regular heat treatment, is poisonous. It causes symptoms like drunkenness. I wasn't too thrilled with that specialty, but the Icelandic deer stew made me crazy. Sensational taste", concludes Ramsey.
