Gordon Ramsay is gearing up to open his very own cookery school for budding chefs.
The celebrity chef, 53, recently found himself in hot water after receiving some scathing reviews over his restaurant food prices, as one even dubbed it a « rip off ».
But it seems as though Gordon isn’t letting the drama get to him as he continues to expand his business ventures.
The Gordon Ramsay Academy is set to open its doors at the beginning of next year in Woking, Surrey.
A source told The Sun : « Gordon is super-excited about the new academy. Giving space and opportunity to the next generation of British chefs is something he is passionate about. »
The source went on: « He can’t wait to hopefully see those same chefs in his own restaurants in the future. It will be an industry-leading facility, to give people of all ages and cooking abilities the chance to have relaxed and fun cookery classes.
« It will also support people looking to get into the hospitality industry, by giving them somewhere to hone their skills.
« Students will also get work experience in Gordon’s portfolio of restaurants and there will be a guaranteed job at the end of it. It’s a really great idea. »
The news comes just days after Gordon came come under fire for an « extortionately priced » breakfast he was advertising at one of his restaurants.
He revealed that a new fry-up would be joining the menu at his Savoy Grill restaurant from September 21.
The restaurant will be charging customers £19 for the brekkie which includes two eggs, one sausage, a few strips of bacon, one tomato and one mushroom.
He shared the news on Twitter with a picture of « the most amazing Full English » breakfast with his 7.4 million followers.
But it didn’t take long for fans to criticise its steep price, and mock the professional chef by comparing it to their own fry-ups.
In reply to the mouth-watering video that Gordon shared of the breakfast, one person said: « Wow £19 for that breakfast…also where’s the Beans… »
Another added: « Can’t wait for you to try it!!!!! Are the sides £5 each or is that for all of them???? Who is mug enough to pay a fiver for one sausage??? Get a grip GR. »
A third said: « £19. If you want black pudding, it’ll cost you an extra fiver. File under ‘rip off’. »
