Gordon Ramsey at The Auckland Cooking Academy

Gordon Ramsey at The Auckland Cooking Academy

An exclusive opportunity to meet one of the worlds most colourful culinary personalities will be held on Wednesday 12th May at The Auckland Cooking Academy, Millys Kitchen Warehouse in Parnell.

The man who made a name for himself as one of Britains finest chefs and television personalities will be visiting New Zealand to judge the semi finals and finals of the NZ Gordon Ramsay Scholar Competition. Gordon Ramsey began the UK Gordon Ramsay Scholar Competition in 2001 with the overall winner receiving sponsored prizes, and work experience in renowned kitchens around the world.

The first winner was a young 20-year-old chef, Gemma Blow from The Square in London. Gemma won herself two exciting stages; one in Chicago at the renowned restaurant of Charlie Trotter; and the other at the famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Her win has put her feet firmly on the path to becoming a top chef.

All the winners acknowledge that winning the prestigious Gordon Ramsay Scholarship "opened a lot of doors" for them. New Zealand is the first country outside the United Kingdom to take part in this Competition. Gordon is visiting New Zealand in may for the final judging of his scholarship programme, which offers an exclusive opportunity to encourage and recognise New Zealand's promising young chefs who are already working in the industry.

"I am looking for talented young chefs who can demonstrate dedication and determination to succeed at the very highest levels" Gordon Ramsay says.

Cocktails with Gordon Ramsey at The Auckland Cooking Academy is an exclusive opportunity to meet and have a glass with Gordon and hear about his scholarship programmes and his culinary adventures. Gordon will also be happy to personally sign copies of his books during the evening.

Tickets to the event are $70.00 per person, and can be booked by phoning The Auckland Cooking Academy on 3091690 or email
