A British celebrity chef, television personality, a restaurateur named Gordon James Ramsay was born on 8th November 1966. He was born in Scotland and grew up in Stratford-upon-Avon and described his early life as “hopelessly itinerant”. At the age of 16, Ramsay moved out of the family home and into a flat in Banbury.

Upcoming years brought more success to him and from his first restaurant; Ramsay’s empire has expanded rapidly in several places.
