Jetting off on amazing adventures around the world might not be a possibility for most of us right now, but we can still live vicariously through Gordon Ramsay, as a new series of his popular Uncharted travel cookery show arrives on our screens this month.
In the National Geographic series, Gordon journeys to some of the most incredible and remote locations on Earth in search of culinary inspiration, epic adventures, and cultural experiences he will never forget. And to bring just a little taste of that wonder to your home, we’ve got four delicious recipes to share from the show.
Gordon Ramsay Uncharted recipes
Southern India’s coastline in the Indian states of Kerala and Karnataka is what helped shape the cuisine — access to harbors that led to the world spice trade. Kachampuli vinegar, a rich, dark liquid extract from the Malabar tamarind, is used in this Gordon Ramsay Kerala-style fish curry recipe, a spicy traditional dish that includes curry leaves and Kashmiri chili powder.
The Indonesian region of West Sumatra is home to masakan padang, the most popular and influential style of Indonesian cuisine. In Minang dialect, the term ‘balado’ means ‘with chilli,” so one of the main ingredients of the accompanying sambal balado is most certainly spicy red chillis.
While cuisine from Louisiana tends to fall into either the Creole or Cajun description, local ingredients from the land, bayou and coastal waters are the highlight. Fresh satsumas (a variety of mandarin oranges), white wine and herbs combine in a beurre blanc to top the trout, a popular saltwater fish in the state.
Southern India’s coastline in the Indian states of Kerala and Karnataka is what helped shape the cuisine — access to harbors that led to the world spice trade. The flavourful spiced rice pudding mixes cardamom, milk, coffee liqueur and jaggery sugar to create a traditional dessert delicacy.
These recipes are from Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted Season Two, which begins on Wednesday 16th September on National Geographic at 9pm.
