“I maintain standards and I strive for perfection.” – Chef Gordon Ramsay 

 

Chef Gordon Ramsay is a fiery chef from Scotland who, over his career, has managed to fuse his passion for cooking and fine dining with entertainment and business – subsequently leading to fame and success. He demands the highest of quality from others, which earned him recognition in the industry and shortly thereafter the whole world knew who he was.  Regardless of whether people recognized him because of his critical evaluations or his tasty dishes, Ramsay’s strive for perfection earned him the reputation that follows him from kitchen to kitchen and country to country.  In 2015, Forbes ranked him as having the 21st highest income of celebrities in the world, proving that he has come a long way since his conventional upbringing and dabbling in European football. Although he had had a passion for football, he unfortunately suffered a knee injury during team trials and not long after turned his football aspirations toward culinary goals.  At age 19, Ramsay began devoting himself to his new calling – throwing himself at the mercy of mentors that shaped him into the man he is today.  While his mentors guided him towards his niche, Chef Gordon Ramsay’s tenacity is what brought him the success that he relishes in today.
