Gordon Ramsay
For Full Story

http://mediasportandotherrantings.blogspot.com/2008/03/...


I'm a huge fan of Gordon Ramsay, I think what he has done and what he is trying to acheive will never be match, my first impression of him though was very different.

I remember watching a Documentary series years ago, which was on the opening of his first restaurant, and thinking who does this guy think he is? I was disgusted at the treatment of his staff and wished that his Restaurant will be a big failure. I watched as he grabbed a little wee Frenchman, fired him for making one mistake and then literally threw him down the stairs, he then chased after him and try to push this guy off his bicycle. I watched as he scream at a waiter, who made the mistake of having a drink of water, to cool down after the air condition broke down.

3. Ramsay is indeed a guilty pleasure of mine...
His chef's knife cuts both ways.

I'm more of a pacifist that he is, but he sure knows which buttons to push to get things done...

(BTW - I've pissed off many good people on this board with my raw attitude {for better or worse}).

I'm not proud of myself, but sometimes frustrations need to be expressed. I chose the wrong forum for that.

4. When it comes to TV Chefs.....
I'l take Delia Smith or Rick Stein over Ramsay any day. At least with their programmes you can learn about food, rather then the head chef shouting at people.

6. I love the BBCA broadcasts of the Brit version of the show -
they bleep out every time he says "shit" but leave every instance of "fuck" quite alone. :D

7. The only time I've much liked him was his Kitchen Nightmares show.
That was always a hoot.

8. I had an orchestra conductor who was a bit like that.
Not as extreme of course, but he was one of those people who knew what buttons to push to make it right. And as much as he was a pain in the ass sometimes, I learned a helluva lot more from him than I did from the guy who replaced him. With him, you knew when you screwed up and you knew how to correct it. Because he told you in no uncertain terms.
