Gordon Ramsay

In 1993 Gordon became chef of Aubergine in London. Within three years, was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay set up his first wholly owned and namesake restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world - three Michelin stars. Today, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is London's longest-running restaurant to hold this award, and Ramsay is one of only four chefs in the U.K. to maintain three stars. Gordon has also become a star of the small screen with shows like Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen. He is also a published author of a number of books, many of which have become bestsellers around the world, most notably his autobiography, Roasting in Hell's Kitchen.

Gordon says: "You'll find versions of this recipe all across Asia, and it shows how good fast food can be. Because you are cooking over a high heat, it's important to work quickly and keep everything moving around the wok, especially once the garlic has been added, as it will burn easily and taste bitter. Flattening the chicken not only means it will cook more quickly, but helps to tenderise it too."
