Celebrity Foodies On Wednesday, July 25, National Geographic announced Ramsay’s new series, Uncharted, will feature the foul-mouthed chef embarking “on anthropology-through-cuisine expeditions” to foster relationships with people, places and flavors around the world. Each episode will also see the MasterChef Junior host, 51, face off against the locals, “pitting his own interpretations of regional dishes against the tried-and-true classics,” before ending with a “friendly competition with local chefs and foodies.” Stars Who Dine Out As many people on social media have noted, Uncharted sounds very similar to Parts Unknown, the CNN show that featured Bourdain traveling around the world learning about other cultures through food. After Bourdain’s death by suicide in June, his friend and fellow chef Andrew Zimmern told Us Weekly that he was worried about similar shows popping up, explaining, “My fear is that having realized how valuable he was now that he’s gone, that there’s some network out there ready to launch 30 Bourdain copycat shows with real idiots hosting them.

Saskatoon Police Service Chief Troy Cooper said flags will be lowered tomorrow to honour Linklater.
