Gordon Ramsay is the world’s most famously bad-tempered chef. The 51-year-old began his award-winning career in England, eventually working his way to the country’s capital, London, before finally hitting the big time working with Marco Pierre White at Harveys restaurant.

However, the two did not see eye-to-eye, and after almost three years he decided to leave and move to Paris to study under other acclaimed chefs. When he eventually returned to London, White helped him set up his first restaurant and the rest, as they say, is history.
