British Chef Gordon Ramsay has a new show in the works called Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, slated to premiere next year on The National Geographic channel.
Premise: Ramsay will explore foreign food cultures, “discover the undiscovered”, and engage in a kitchen competition with the locals, where he will pit his own interpretations of local dishes against the traditional versions.
Public reactions have been great negative, so National Geographic issued a disclaimer statement of support:
“We are disappointed that the announcement of our upcoming series with Gordon Ramsay was taken out of context. With National Geographic’s storied history of exploration, our plan with this series is to celebrate and learn about local cultures around the world. In partnering with Ramsay — a well-known adventure enthusiast — we are going to fully immerse viewers and give them a glimpse into surprising and unexpected cultures and local flavors. We have not gone into production on the series yet, so this perspective is premature. We’re looking forward to working with Ramsay, who’s been making food and travel documentaries for well over a decade, to share the series when it premieres sometime next year.”
ONTD, do you miss Anthony Bourdain’s classier exploration of cultural cuisine?
