Fred Sirieix, Gino D'campo and Gordon Ramsay are set for a special Christmas road trip.
The trio are back for another extraordinary culinary Christmas adventure and with 2020 having been a bit bleak, to say the least, the boys are keen to end the year with a bang.
Gordon, Gino and Fred road trip Christmas special is on TV this festive period with an air date confirmed for Wednesday, 16 December at 9PM on ITV.
After Gino led them to the deserts of Morocco on last year’s mis-adventure, Gordon is determined that they celebrate the season properly this time, so he has arranged a trip to the ultimate winter wonderland destination and the official home of Santa, Lapland!
Gordon, Gino and Fred: Desperately Seeking Santa will follow the group as they take a trip in their trusty RV to experience a treasure trove of festive fare and meet Father Christmas in person.
ITV share of the new special: "Gino has a letter he wants to hand deliver to Santa from his daughter Mia, Fred is keen to witness the once-in-a-lifetime wonder of the Northern Lights and Gordon is eager that they all encounter the culinary delights of the country and chow down on some reindeer meat.
"He knows it tastes delicious and is one of the healthiest foods you can put on your plate. Served with buttery mashed potatoes, reindeer is eaten throughout the country in all seasons.
"But the boys won’t just be eating Rudolph, they’ll be having a not so traditional Christmas feast with the Sami people, the only indigenous people within the EU who have been herding reindeer for centuries. And helping with the herding will enable the boys to better understand how these majestic and mythical Christmas creatures make such good meat!
"As the three foodie friends seek out the best the country has to offer their expert palettes, they’ll face plenty of off menu distractions.
"This is the land of ice swimming and saunas, snowmobiles and huskies, and it wouldn’t be a Gordon, Gino & Fred Road Trip unless they got snowballs deep in everything this country has to offer."
Gordon said: "Christmas is absolutely the time to try and forget the dark moments and focus on festive cheer which is exactly what we are going to do when we get together and get out to Lapland. What’s not to love about three grown men going in search of Father Christmas!?"
Fred added: "We are back together after such a disastrous year. We have missed each other and the fun."
And Gino enthused: "Do you know what, it’s good timing for everybody, even for me personally, it’s a great time to be able to get out and try and forget about everything.
"Because when you film Gordon Gino Fred, you kind of have to put everything behind. That’s the secret of the show for us and for the people watching. You’re going to have a fantastic time!"
Gordon, Gino and Fred: Desperately Seeking Santa is on Wednesday, 16 December 9PM on ITV.
