Gordon Ramsay’s Uncharted has a trailer, and it’s a bit wild

Gordon Ramsay is opening a new restaurant in London called Lucky Cat. Gordon Ramsay is also the host of a new TV show with National Geographic called Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, in which he goes to never-before-discovered-or-seen countries to cook never-before-seen-or-cooked-food. That would, of course, be the definition of ‘uncharted,’ the fragile poetic license of which pales in comparison to the fact that he is actually visiting countries that all have centuries or millennia of cooking tradition behind them, none of which are uncharted.

A short teaser posted on Gordon Ramsay’s Instagram, Gordongram, says that “adventure is a dish [Gordon catches a fish, climbs a tree, fries some grubs] best served by Gordon.” He also scales a cliff face under the direction of globally-acclaimed — but also uncharted? — Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez, gets a taxi, serves his version of a regional dish to people of that region dressed in their traditional outfits and reflects on how “this is the kind of discovery that sends me straight back to my kitchen.” Perhaps that’s a better place to start — and stay, for a chef who responded to reasonable criticism of his show by reflecting on the “jeopardy” of jumping into Peru, Brazil, and Alaska, and promising to “make all those bitter, twisted, little, boring truckers who aren’t busy enough in their lives eat their words.” [Instagram]
