Gordon Ramsay laces his boots, grabs his knives, and buckles up as he hits the road again in the second season of Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, premiering on 8 June at SIN/HK 10 a.m. (JKT/TH 9 a.m.) on National Geographic with a primetime repeat at SIN/HK 10 p.m. (JKT/TH 9 p.m,).

Season two follows the multi-Michelin star chef and Ironman athlete as he embarks on more exhilarating global adventures in his relentless pursuit of culinary inspiration. The series will air globally in 172 countries and 43 languages. In Southeast Asia, it will air across Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

“We are exploring seven new regions this season, each with vastly different culinary customs and history,” said Ramsay. “We get the opportunity to learn from the locals and hear their stories, and that gives us a much deeper experience and understanding of the world around us.”

Ramsay feasts his way through Tasmania, South Africa, Indonesia, Louisiana, Norway, India, and Guyana, venturing even more off-grid and off-recipe to explore global cuisines. He journeys deep into the landscape of each location, scaling mountains, battling 3-metre waves, braving frigid temperatures, and bushwhacking his way through the backcountry to forage for some of the finest ingredients in the world. From swimming in Great white shark-infested waters to participating in a traditional bull run, Ramsay risks life and limb in his biggest and boldest mission yet in order to achieve edible excellence.

Under the guidance of local experts and food legends he meets along the way, Ramsay partakes in culinary customs and learns about the delicacies and fresh flavours 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 locals.

Some of the adventures — culinary and otherwise — that Ramsay experiences this season include:
– Risking life and limb by participating in a traditional bull race in a remote West Sumatran rice paddy field;
– Braving Tasmania’s stormy waters to hose-dive among the rocks for giant spiny lobsters;
– Leaping from a helicopter into high waves to harvest mussels along the South African coast;
– Exploring a bat-infested Indonesian cave system in search of giant prawns;
– Racing a four-wheeler through Louisiana’s dangerously muddy back roads to forage for fresh
greens and hunt for bullfrogs and crawfish;
– Plunging into Norway’s frigid waters to uncover the bounty of ingredients found within the
fjords;
– And battling strong surf to catch fish using traditional techniques in South India — that is,
with a 90-kilogram net out at sea.
