“With numerous hit TV shows, entertaining viewers all over the world, Gordon Ramsay might be the only chef ambitious and talented enough to open two restaurants within days of each other, without a second thought. Following the highly successful opening of Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas in May of 2012, the opening of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino marks three Gordon Ramsay restaurants to open in Las Vegas in less than a year, expanding his relationship with Caesars Entertainment Corp.
Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management. His dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of the world’s leading chefs, such as Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White in London, and Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon in France.
In 1993, Ramsay became chef of Aubergine in London. Within three years, he was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay set up his first wholly owned and namesake restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world – three Michelin stars. Today, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is London’s longest-running restaurant to hold this award, and Ramsay is one of only four chefs in the U.K. to maintain three stars.
Now internationally renowned, Ramsay has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to the United States. Ramsay has also become a star of the small screen, both in the U.K. and internationally, with U.K. shows such as Gordon’s Great Escapes and Gordon Ramsay: Shark Bait, as well as four top-rated Fox shows that air in more than 200 countries worldwide: Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef and Hotel Hell. He is also a published author of a number of books, many of which have become bestsellers around the world, most notably his autobiography, “Roasting in Hell’s Kitchen”.
Ramsay lives with his wife, Tana, and their four children, along with their bulldog Rumpole and two cats. He divides his time between Los Angeles and South London.
