Keweenaw episode & watch party for National Geographic’s Uncharted with Gordon Ramsay

HOUGHTON – Members of the Copper Country are invited to a free community watch party of National Geographic’s Uncharted with Gordon Ramsay featuring the Keweenaw Peninsula. The showing will be held at the Michigan Tech’s Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts in Houghton on Sunday, July 25. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. with the airing beginning at 9 p.m. The event is hosted by the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Last September, all of Michigan asked the question: What’s Chef Gordon Ramsay doing in the Keweenaw Peninsula? Reports later confirmed the celebrity chef was filming an episode with Michigan chef James Rigato of award-winning Mabel Gray in Hazel Park for television series’ third season. Uncharted follows Ramsay’s global exploration of some of the most remote places on Earth to learn culinary secrets from the locals – with some heart-pumping adventure on the side.

According to National Geographic’s episode listing, “Gordon dives into Lake Superior in search of burbot amongst shipwrecks, navigates the forest to hunt woodcock, and helps a monk build a fence for his thimbleberry jam bushes.” National Geographic’s cooking expedition series airs on Sundays at 9/8c, and airs globally in 172 countries and 43 languages. Episodes are available the next day on Disney+, along with seasons one and two, which are currently available to stream.

“This is an incredible moment for the Keweenaw Peninsula,” shared Brad Barnett, director of the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau. “It’s a reminder to our community that we have a really special place in the Copper Country. We’re appreciative to National Geographic and the Gordon Ramsay team for helping show-off our part of Michigan.”
