Premise: Culinary curmudgeon Gordon Ramsay hits the road to explore new kinds of cuisine unfamiliar not only to most members of the viewing audience, but to the renowned chef himself. In the first season, Ramsay explores the culinary traditions of India, whips up some curry and samples the vegetarian lifestyle. Subsequent episodes include the crusty cook exploring Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Thailand, as he tries his hand at exotic delicacies that can only be found in these Southeast Asian locales. Tarantula, anyone?
