Chef Gordon Ramsay tells TMZ ... he isn't writing off disgraced "Hell's Kitchen" champ Ja'Nel Witt even after she failed a drug test -- "My door is always open."

We broke the story ... Witt was not allowed to take the job as head chef at Ramsay's Las Vegas restaurant after winning HK earlier this year because she tested positive for cocaine.

But Ramsay says he still believes in Witt's talent ... and yesterday at LAX he told us, "I hope she sorts out her personal issues."

While it is true that very few of the winners were given the job promised they were given jobs with the exact salary promised and as far as ja'nel being on drugs being a cook is extremely stressful I know because I'm I'm that profession it takes a lot out of you mentally and physically
