Gordon Ramsay's Salary

$45 Million Per Year

Gordon Ramsay was born on November 8, 1966, in Johnstone, Scotland. He hoped to be a professional football player as a child, but injuries caused him to turn his attention to another love – cooking. In the mid-90s, he was running the kitchen at the Wroxton House Hotel, but a relationship with the owner’s wife prompted him to move to London. Gordon Ramsay bounced around restaurants before landing at Harvey, run by Pierre White. Pierre White was notorious for his fiery temperament, throwing dishes and assaulting his chefs. It is said he once made Ramsay cry in the kitchen after an outburst.

After almost three years at Harvey’s, Ramsay left to study French cuisine but started working for Albert Roux at Le Gavroche at Pierre White’s suggestion. There, Ramsay met Jean-Claude Breton, who would become the Restaurant Gordon Ramsay’s maître d’hôtel. Roux eventually asked Ramsay to be his number two chef at Hotel Diva. He would move on to Paris, where he worked with Michelin star chefs Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon when he was only 23 years old. Gordon Ramsay returned to London to be the head chef at three-star Michelin restaurant La Tante Claire in Chelsea. Pierre White then set Ramsay up in the head chef position at Rossmore (renamed Aubergine) in 1993. The Gordon Ramsay net worth increased by getting a 10% share in the restaurant. Within just 14 months, Aubergine would win a Michelin star.

After a dispute with the owners, Ramsay left Aubergine to open his first restaurant in Chelsea, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. Ramsay worked hard and by 2001, the restaurant had its third Michelin star. Gordon Ramsay decided to branch out and open his next restaurant in Glasgow. How many restaurants has Ramsay had? Over 20! Eventually, Ramsay’s restaurants would cover the globe with locations in Canada, Ireland, Dubai, Tokyo, New York City, Florida, and Los Angeles. There was a controversy about pre-prepared food at some of Ramsay’s restaurants, to which a spokeswoman replied, “This is standard practice. What on earth was the fuss about?”

His magic in the kitchen has made him a successful television personality. Gordon Ramsay’s cooking television shows have included Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef, Gordon’s Great Escape, and F Word. Two British television series, Hell’s Kitchen and the F-Word, would later become series in the US on the Fox Network. Gordon Ramsay not only hosts shows, but he also appears on them. He and British chef Jamie Oliver spent time on a trawler boat in The Big Fish Fight. This series brought awareness to discarding fish at sea.

In 2021, the cookery school called The Gordon Ramsay Academy opened in Woking, Surrey. Gordon Ramsay Academy offers cooking classes for all ages and includes online classes.

Ramsay has been called highly competitive, with a need to achieve culinary perfection. He is often shown having a fiery temper and spewing expletives at his chefs. Ramsay attributes his unfiltered criticism and temperament to his chef mentors, like White and Savoy, and father-in-law, Chris Hutcheson. According to Gordon Ramsay, he is often unaware of his outbursts until he sees them on television. Ramsay’s finesse in the kitchen and likable yet often volatile personality makes him one of the most influential chefs ever.
