In this brand new series, Gordon Ramsay travels the length and the breadth of the UK in search of brilliant restaurants that deliver gastronomic perfection. He’s looking for a shining culinary star who deserves to win the title of Ramsay’s Best Restaurant. Gordon will be celebrating the breathtakingly diverse talent in kitchens all over the country. But this is no genteel showcase, it’s a cut-throat competition, fiercely fought and hard won so the faint of heart need not apply. Gordon and his team will plough through thousands of nominations from the restaurant-going public, scrutinising well loved restaurants in exacting detail. Each of the eight heats will focus on a different type of cuisine including Italian, French and British categories. Great people with great stories are at the heart of every episode of Ramsay’s Best Restaurant. This series is not simply a search for professional excellence, it’s a deeply personal journey for Gordon – every step along the way he’ll be meeting people who, just like him, have an enormous and unyielding passion for cooking. It will bring home to Gordon what’s really great about Britain, its culinary traditions and the multitude of cuisines it embraces. All over the country, people are running independent restaurants because there’s nothing on earth they’d rather do. And spending time with them will remind Gordon why he loves people who love food. Ultimately, he knows it’s a privilege to be able to discover the very best in Britain and award them the accolade of Ramsay’s Best Restaurant.
