GORDON RAMSAY: UNCHARTED
July 27, 2019  | By David Bianculli

National Geographic, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Gordon Ramsay seems to be all over the Fox schedule – but for this new National Geographic series, he sets out to conquer the world. Or, at least, to visit it, one remote community at a time. The setting for the premiere is Peru’s Sacred Valley, and Ramsay tours the area, climbs trees, samples food, and even cooks his own variations on local recipes. The program’s eagerness to go to distant places and try unusual things is a nod to, if not a petty theft of, the late Anthony Bourdain, but Ramsay is a bit more set in his ways. When he samples a fried caterpillar, he spits it out – whereas, long ago on another culinary travel series, that program’s host, Michael Palin of Monty Python fame, bit into a similarly exotic offering, smiled, and ad-libbed wickedly, “Good grub!”
