Gordon James Ramsay Early Life

When he was 12 years old, he started playing under-14 football and was selected for his first team. Due to repeated injuries, his football career was over.
Ramsay moved to Stratford-upon-Avon with his family in 1976, where he worked as a pot washer in a nearby Indian restaurant. He left his parents’ house when he was 16 and began residing in a flat in Banbury.

Gordon James Ramsay Career

When he was 19, he decided to enrol in “North Oxfordshire Technical College” to study hotel management because he was serious about getting a culinary degree.
He first worked at the Wickham Arms in the middle of the 1980s before moving on to the Wroxton House Hotel. Later, he relocated to London and worked in numerous restaurants there.
After spending two years and ten months working under the difficult Marco Pierre White at “Harveys,” he made the decision to pursue a career in French cuisine. He started working for Albert Roux at “Le Gavroche” in Mayfair on the advice of White.
After a year of employment at “Le Gavroche,” Roux extended an invitation for him to join him at “Hotel Diva,” a ski resort in the French Alps. Later, Ramsay relocated to Paris.
Ramsay opened Gordon Ramsay at Powerscourt, his first eatery in Ireland, in 2007 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Powerscourt, County Wicklow. In 2013, this restaurant closed. He debuted his first eatery in the Western US in May 2008 at the Sunset Strip’s London West Hollywood Hotel (formerly the Bel-Age Hotel). The restaurant was shut down in 2015 when the contract ran out.
In Montreal, at the site of the former Rotisserie Laurier BBQ, Ramsay debuted Laurier Gordon Ramsay on August 9, 2011, as his first establishment in the country. The restaurant’s owner, Danny Lavy, declared in February 2012 that the establishment was severing ties with Ramsay due to the chef’s lack of participation and comprehension.
2013 saw the closure of the eatery.
