The Gordon Ramsay Academy is set to open in Woking this Autumn, creating a 6,000 sq ft environment to welcome food lovers of all levels and ability to hone their culinary passions through a vast range of educational, technical and fun courses and training programmes.
In addition to the upstairs academy, a 3,700 sq ft ground floor location for the first STREET BURGER outside of London will also open, offering 7 statement burgers made with ingredients sourced from British providers from around the UK.
Cllr Ayesha Azad, leader of Woking Borough Council, said: “This is a major coup for the borough. Gordon Ramsay has world renowned restaurants all over the globe so we’re absolutely delighted he has chosen Woking as the place for his next big venture. Not only is it enormously exciting for everyone, it’s also hugely positive for everything we’re doing to make Woking Town Centre a vibrant and interesting regional destination. We look forward to welcoming him and his team.”
Gordon Ramsay said: “I am beyond excited to finally confirm The Gordon Ramsay Academy will be opening in Woking later this year. It has been a long time in the planning and I truly believe, not only will we offer guests of all ages and abilities the chance to learn in what I hope will be fun, relaxed and also really informative classes, but to me this Academy will go even further. I know how important mentors are, how important it is as a professional chef to sharpen your skills, to be guided in your training and to gain valuable work-place experience in a professional kitchen environment.”
