Gordon Ramsay is taking food as far as it can go in National Geographic‘s new series Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, premiering August 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The show follows the mutli-Michelin-star chef as he embarks on a new exhilarating adventure around the globe. Every ingredient he harvests and dish he tastes will inspire a new recipe from scratch, created to represent the heart of that culture. Each episode concludes with Ramsay challenging himself with a local food legend by his side — putting his newfound skills to the test as they cook a feast together for the locals. He’ll visit the out-of-the-way places that tourists don’t find in locations like Peru, Morocco, Laos, New Zealand, Hawaii and Alaska. For Ramsay, food is the gateway to culture, and every adventure is a portal into the soul of the people and place.
