Watch Gordon Ramsay Make Scrambled Egg Dishes From Around The World

Gordon Ramsay is known for his high-drama reality cooking series, but also has been whipping up a variety of unique egg dishes on his YouTube channel.

As part of a series on his channel, Scrambled, Chef Ramsay has been cooking up a variety of unique egg dishes that draw influence from different countries. The locations coincide with episodes of his National Geographic show, Uncharted.

Below are just a few of the tasty unique scrambled egg dishes Ramsay has made that might inspire a few creative takes of your own.

Sea Urchin Scrambled Eggs In Tasmania

Uni scrambled eggs are always a luxurious, savory treat, especially when served in the shell. In spots like California, where sea urchin is considered an invasive species, this could be a way to treat yourself, have a fun scrambled egg experience, and help the environment out at the same time.

Peruvian Alpaca Fat Scrambled Eggs

Alpaca is a common protein in Peru, but Chef Ramsay stuck to using the fat, alongside chilies and herbs whisked inside. Could be interesting to do this with another type of animal fat if alpaca isn’t available near you. Pork fat, perhaps?

Black Iberian Bacon and Eggs from Portugal

Iberico Pork is one of the highest-quality meats you can find out there, and Chef Ramsay managed to get some from Black Iberian Pigs (Porco Preto) and turn it into a tasty take on bacon and eggs. He actually doesn’t use the belly, which makes me intrigued on what other cuts of pork could go great alongside eggs that we normally don’t use.

Norwegian Reindeer Sausage Omelette

Reindeer is commonly eaten in the colder parts of the Northern Hemisphere, especially in Scandinavian countries and even Alaska. If you don’t want to track down reindeer sausages on Amazon (yes, you can find them there), maybe another game meat sausage or even something spicy like andouille would work?

Regardless of which dish you take on, it’s cool to get a ton of inspiration around a single item, and Chef Ramsay is doing just that with this unique series all about scrambled eggs.

Get To Know LA’s Best Gourmet Fish & Chips

When it comes to fish & chips, Los Angeles is most likely the last city you’d expect to serve up a plate that’s noteworthy enough to tell everyone you know about. But at Fishpop, in the Koreatown neighborhood of LA, Chef Joon is firing up gourmet versions in different and bold flavors that are memorable and scintiliating.

Joon’s culinary pedigree is made up of training under lauded chef Joe Sasto, where he learned the fine art of pasta making. The unlikely connection to fish & chips could have one wondering initially the exact correlation, but once you realize that technical kitchen prowess is key to making a perfect serving of fish & chips, it all starts to make sense as to why Fishpop’s brand of the dish is top notch in the city.

Whether you’re crunching into a sweet & sour homage to Panda Express’ Orange Chicken in crispy fish form, or if you’re like me, and diving face first into the perfect and memorable spicy version, Fishpop guarantees a fierce craving for their food. It’s chef’d up fish & chips, really, all done with the respect and care that even the most humble cut of deep-fried seafood deserves.

The video above illustrates the fine details that go into Fishpop’s mastery of fish & chips, which is more than enough to convince any discerning diner that this is the best version that LA has to offer.

Fresh made pasta is one of the world’s tastiest comforts, especially when put into a creamy, cheesy sauce that gets the serotonin spiking.

There’s many variations on mac and cheese and similar pasta dishes out in the wild. What makes the Ube Mac and Cheese from Orange County’s Pvsta Lab stand out, however, is their fresh made ube pasta with a striking violet hue.
