Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted is the culinary adventure foodies crave


Are you ready for a culinary adventure? In Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted the iconic chef travels the world and embraces food as the universal language.

Debuting on National Geographic, Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted explores the ultimate foodie adventure. Putting aside the best of lists or the hottest food trends, this culinary adventure discovers the heart of food and culture. Are you open to this culinary journey?

While the term foodie is often bantered about, most food fans have a willingness to explore all types of foods, flavors and cuisines. Although American tastes might shy away from offal or certain proteins, other cultures celebrate those ingredients.

In some ways, those food choices are more than necessity. They are an expression of culture, heritage and community. Being open to any and every experience creates a universal language through the exploration of food, flavor and cuisine.

This Ramsay show explores those connections between people and food. While the show is food centric, the episodes highlight the stories behind the food. As many people have come to understand, a dish is often a person, a community and a culture on a plate.

While each episode highlights a different location, the premise is similar in each episode. Ramsay connects with the people and the community behind the location’s food. While foodies may gawk at the food legends highlighted in each episode, the journey to that ultimate feast is the real reason to watch this series.

In a way, this series is valuable lesson for any food fan. Many chefs travel the world looking for inspiration. While they might not be recreating an iconic, regional dish, chefs often use experiences as inspiration for new recipes.

Through this series, Ramsay learned about the “unique traditions, delicacies and the extreme lengths it takes to harvest native ingredients.” Even as a veteran of culinary programming, this series helped him learn more about food and its connection to community.

While the viewer at home might not be able to Peru or New Zealand, anyone can find the connection to their own world. Maybe instead of buying fish from the mass market retailer, you can go to the local fish market and learn how that fresh catch got to your dinner table. The idea is to spark a conservation about food, what it means and how it unites everyone in a universal language.

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted will air starting on Sunday, July 21 at 10 p.m. EST on National Geographic. The summer series will highlight several locations including Peru, Hawaii, Alaska and New Zealand.
