Talking about his achievement, Ramsay said,
“Thank you very f**king much. I’m so stoked. Does that mean I’m getting old, though? God, I think I’d go to Tamarind for a curry. But I kid you not; if I could jump in a helicopter after picking up the Old Man’s Lifetime Achievement Award, I’d fly the whole family up to Khai Khai in Newcastle and eat my curry on the fucking Tyne. The last time I tasted authentic Indian cuisine like that, I was in the middle of Bangladesh.”
Reflecting on his career as a renowned chef, Gordon Ramsay stated that he had worked hard to become a cooking genius in the industry. He said,
“I think my legacy would be the plethora of talent that I’ve had the pleasure to work with they’re now laying the foundation of the future. Oh, and whether I’m in a tapas bar on the backstreets of Barcelona or the arse-end of the jungle, someone wants to talk to me about my f**king beef Wellington. As for what I’d like to be remembered for… I’d like to be remembered for perfection. Because it’s an absolute b**ch to get right, but when it is, it’s the most beautiful f***ing thing on the planet.”
During the conversation, the 56-year-old chef talked about his culinary perfection. He said,
“The beginning was upset at Rangers FC. I’d been selected for a testimonial game, a childhood dream. I remember everything; seeing the team sheet, even the fucking pin on the board. Number 3, Ramsay. I was f***ing starting! 17 minutes in, I got tackled, and I was f**Ked. I knew there and then. F**ked.
Gordon Ramsay successfully built his multi-million dollar empire with his dedication and hard work towards his profession. According to reports, he is one of only four professional chefs in the UK to maintain three prestigious Michelin stars.
