Gordon Ramsay Is Back For Another All-Action Global Culinary Adventure, Tasting and Traversing His Way Through Portugal, Croatia, Mexico, Texas, Puerto Rico, Iceland and More!
Gordon Ramsay is back, foraging for food and facing treacherous conditions around the globe in pursuit of culinary excellence in the third season of GORDON RAMSAY: UNCHARTED. National Geographic’s cooking expedition series will premiere this Memorial Day, on Monday, May 31, at 9/8c, and will also air globally in 172 countries and 43 languages. After its Memorial Day premiere, the series will air weekly on Sundays at 9/8c, beginning on Sunday, June 6. The multi-Michelin-star chef and Ironman athlete buckles up this season as he serves up another thrilling adventure, exploring world cultures through food.
“During these unprecedented times, UNCHARTED provides an exciting escape to explore the world safely from home, and inspiration to try new flavors and cooking techniques from the food experts I meet along my journey,” said Gordon Ramsay. “The world is a massive place, full of diversity and history, and we’re just starting to dig into the boldest flavors the planet has to offer.”
This upcoming season, Ramsay hits the road again and feasts his way through Portugal, Croatia, Mexico, Texas, Maine, Puerto Rico, Iceland and the Smoky Mountains, going off the grid and off the recipe to explore global cuisines and unique culinary customs. He’ll herd cattle on horseback with the help of a helicopter and hunt for venomous rattlesnake in the backcountry of Texas. He’ll brave giant pounding waves for fresh barnacles that cling to the rocky Portuguese coastline and struggle to keep up with a team of lobster fisherwomen off the coast of Maine’s choppy waters. He’ll fight for oxygen while freediving for local mollusks in Croatia and rappel down a treacherous waterfall and kayak through raging rapids deep in the Smoky Mountains.
Under the guidance of local experts and food legends he meets along the way, Ramsay will partake in culinary customs and learn about delicious delicacies and fresh flavors unique to each region. Every ingredient he harvests, dish he tastes and person he meets will inspire him to create a recipe from scratch intended to represent the heart of that culture. Each episode concludes with Ramsay challenging himself during a final big cookout with a local food legend by his side, as they prepare a meal together for the locals he met during his journey.
