In Gordon Ramsay Uncharted, the chef leaves the shiny kitchens of the UK and USA behind for a cooking adventure that takes him to places right off the beaten track

In Gordon Ramsay Uncharted, chef Gordon Ramsay escapes the heat of the kitchen to go back to nature and discover more about the food of six remote locations.

He begins in southern New Zealand, on Stewart Island, where he meets local Maori chef Monique Fiso.

Out of his comfort zone? Just a bit…

She hands him a machete and takes him foraging – a vital part of Maori cooking.

He also free-dives in the ocean for paua, a type of shellfish, catches eels with his hands and shoots a wild mountain goat.

After learning all he can about Maori cuisine, he ends his Kiwi adventure by cooking up a feast for a group of Maori elders.
