About the Chef Gordon Ramsay
An extraordinary restaurant does not just spring up out of nowhere. To understand the vision for Hell’s Kitchen Las Vegas, it helps to learn more about the man behind the apron. Chef Gordon’s history also ties into what it costs to dine at Hell’s Kitchen. His food fame definitely impacts the bottom line.
Gordon Ramsay was born in 1966, Scotland. While attracted to sports in his earlier years (specifically soccer), by the age of 40, Ramsay had turned to cooking and was taking British TV by storm with Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen. Of course, there’s a little more to the story than that (source).
Ramsey studied hotel management, earning his degree in 1987. From there he was able to study and apprentice under some of Europe’s top chefs in both England and France. Come 1993 he was the head chef in Aubergine (London) for three years, earning two Michelin stars. That accomplishment earned him the Newcomer of the Year award at the Catey Awards for the restaurant industry in 1995.
Chef Gordon Ramsay married in 1996. His wife, Cayetana (Tana) Hutcheson was a school teacher at that time. After getting married, they split their life between Los Angeles and London. They have five children Holly, Jack, Matilda, Megan, and Oscar.
Taking the Show on the Road
1998 saw the opening of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London. This restaurant did not disappoint, earning three Michelin stars. The Catey Awards continued keeping an eye on Ramsay, dubbing him Chef of the Year in 2000. Six years later his reputation had spanned the globe, moving into Africa, Australia, and of course, the United States.
Claim to Fame
Reality television in the United States proved fertile ground for his reality TV shows based on the British series. Master Chef began in 2010, followed by Master Chef Junior in 2013, the same year he was inducted to the Culinary Hall of Fame. And if that wasn’t enough, Chef Ramsay has authored over 20 books and currently owns 35 restaurants around the world, including Hell’s Kitchen Las Vegas.
Gordon Ramsay’s Charitable Work
Besides his rich home life, the Chef is deeply involved in various charities. In 2005, he teamed up with Chef Madhur Jaffrey for the Spice up your Life Event in support of HIV and AIDS work in India.
Ramsay and his wife also became ambassadors for Women’s Aid the same year. They have also been involved in on-going efforts for UNICEF along the way through Soccer Aid events.
In 2009 he ran the London Marathon for the Scottish Spina Bifida Association. This is an organization he’s been involved with for some time, including the “Buy a Brick” drive for creating a family support center in Glasgow (2006). Since 2007 he has hosted a St. Andrew’s Day gala as another fundraising focus.
