But, more than this, it is the family ethos he’s creating which attracted me to read more.
In an interview with the Telegraph, the chef talked about how money has never been his number one priority and he doesn’t want to raise his kids that way.
“[The fortune] is definitely not going to them, and that’s not in a mean way; it’s to not spoil them,” he said.[/text_output][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][gap size=”2.313em”][image type=”none” float=”none” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” src=”17850″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”30px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/1″][text_output]He and his wife, Tana, have agreed that their kids -Matilda, 15, Jack and Holly, both 17, and 18-year-old Megan – will get a 25% deposit on a flat, but he refuses to buy the whole property. And the Ramsay children don’t even get luxury treatment when they go on holiday.
Their dad revealed he doesn’t let them sit in first class with the adults, saying they “haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford it.”
He said: “I turn left with Tana and they turn right and I say to the chief stewardess: ‘Make sure those little f***ers don’t come anywhere near us, I want to sleep on this plane’.
“I worked my f***ing arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.”
Ramsay, 50, who has had a TV career in both the UK and US to add to his restaurant successes, is said to have earned $54million last year alone, according to Forbes.
But when it comes to passing money down to his kids, he’s got very strong views. Whether you agree with their delivery or not, the Ramsays have instilled an ethos in their daughters and son that they should save if they want to buy things for themselves.
Do you agree or disagree with this attitude, “family ethos”? Do your children ride the easy wave or do they too need to paddle out through the rips?
