Popular chef Gordon Ramsay, in a recent interview with IANS, expressed his love for India and its diverse culture. Adding more to the excitement, he stated that he wished to open a restaurant in India. 

The discussion was held recently, before the lockdown, when Gordon visited Coorg to shoot the second season of his show on National Geographic titled 'Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted.'  

Talking about the same, he told IANS, "There are very few countries in the world that have such unique diverse flavours from north to south and then east to west. Every state, every region in India has its own speciality in food. I have been coming to India for so many years, and every time I explore something new. It's the love of local people that compels me to visit the country again and again. I really want to open my restaurant for the Indian people in India."

Adding more about the experience, he said, "The south is all about spices and it felt amazing to smell the fragrances of those masalas. It was an incredible experience visiting India this time. I shot with local female cooks. Trust me, they are far, far better than me. In fact, I was surprised to see how they were not sweating while cooking in such hot climate."

Gordon also shed light on the need to introduce food and cooking-related subjects as a part of the school curriculum, and said, "Looking after yourself and your eating habits is important. Cooking should be an example in many schools for boosting students' confidence and making them understand how to look after their well-being. That's welfare. And this is a big agenda for me this year, to encourage more people to cook and talk and have the best conversations with your loved ones around the table."
