Gordon Ramsay, what he did before he became a chef: the terrible background that not everyone is aware of.
He needs no introduction. Gordon Ramsay is one of the most famous chefs in the world, who has become popular thanks to participation in very famous programs dedicated to cooking, such as Hell’s Kitchen, Cucine da nightmare or Masterchef. We really know a lot about his career and his passion for the culinary art, but there is a background about his past which not everyone is aware of.
The Scotsman got into cooking in the early 1980s, but you know what did you do before becoming a cook? Gordon was interested in a very different field from that of cooking, but an unexpected event put him up to his previous career. Let’s find out what happened.
What Gordon Ramsay did before becoming a chef: the painful background that not everyone knows
Gordon Ramsay began cooking in the 1980s: his first job was as a commis at the Roxburh House Hotel, in Roxburghshire, at the end of the decade. But what the famous chef did and restaurateur before entering the world of gastronomy? Well, not everyone would guess, being a field far from the culinary one.
Gordon was indeed a soccer player and was part of the youth teams of the Rangers and, at 12, he played in the under 14 of the Warwickshire. His football career, however, came to a halt in spite of himself. During training, Ramsey injured his knee but continued to play at first. Later, however, during a game of squash, a serious injury arrived, which caused him to rupture of the cruciate ligament of the same knee already affected. An injury that marked the end of his football interlude.
