In just five episodes, Gordon Ramsay Uncharted' Season 2 has proven how infectious, thrilling and addictive it can get. This week, chef-presenter Gordon Ramsay is in Guyana, navigating new waters while being wary of creepy crawlies and killer stingrays. But this wasn't only the adventures he indulged in. Gordon also ate spiders and made bow and arrow — all this while putting together an authentic Guyanese dish. However, the highlight of the show was one of the country's most preferred dish — chicken pepper pot, which is made using the juice of cassava, a root vegetable. It's quite the process, let's keep it at that.

But that didn't tire Gordon out. He's always up for that extra bit of zing — be it in his food or life. And that explains why he was so excited to forage for fresh produce. "This jungle is filled with some of the most exciting foods anywhere on the planet," Gordon told National Geographic and added that the jungle felt like a "vending machine". It was a different experience and viewers agreed when they heaped praises on the showrunners and network for airing such a nostalgic and special episode.
