'Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted': Gordon relishes rat stew in Louisiana, grossed out fans ask 'what will he not eat?'
But, that's not the only source of protein the chef got to lay his hands on. There were frog legs and crawfish to be enjoyed as well
Gordon Ramsay is pushing newer boundaries every episode, both literally and figuratively. In episode three of 'Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted' Season 2, the celebrity chef is in the Louisiana Bayou wading through the swamp in the hope of catching some fish. While at it, he needs to be extremely cautious of the venomous snakes and creepy crawlies that inhabit the waters.
All this for food? For regular people, this may seem a bit too much, overwhelming too. But not for Gordon, who loves a good adventure and would go to any lengths to add a healthy dose of exoticism to his plate.
While he toured the nearby woods, he interacted with locals. During one of his mini-expeditions across the Louisiana landscape, he met and interacted with locals, who introduced him to a new and "interesting" (as he calls it) dish - a rat/ Nutria stew. The Nutria is a semiaquatic herbivore, which is known for its lean red meat. They are a non-native swamp rat, which has caused land erosion over the years.
Gordon has never stepped back from experimenting. He gladly ate the first bite of the stew and said: "That's delicious."
“This week has taught me a lot about how to survive off this incredible land right here in Louisiana, especially across this very fragile ecosystem,” he shared and added: “And these hearty Cajuns have not only survived, but thrived while doing it. Trust me, at the same time, they’re enjoying every minute of it.”
Meanwhile, fans are grossing out watching Gordon polish off the stew.
"Rat anything is nasty gross!!! Happy Father's Day, Gordon," a fan commented, while another asked: "Gordon what will you NOT eat?" In the same thread, others shared memes that were accurate representations of their feelings about Gordon eating a rodent.
But, that's not the only source of protein the chef got to lay his hands on. There were frog legs and crawfish to be enjoyed as well - two of the most well-known Louisiana cuisines the waterways offer.
