Is he a genuinely a good chef or just a pushed meme celebrity?
>>15724732He's a good chef but an abusive asshole in the kitchen.
>>15724732someone post the webm's
>>15724732When they do kitchen nightmares does he get to now own a percentage of those companies
He did I think 5 seasons of the Kitchen Nightmare UK version... I think it was called Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.It's one of the finest food related series/shows I have ever watched. And you can't help but just love Gordon. He is the real deal. Super down to earth, but really intense as well. Very interesting series to watch and I highly recommend if you can find it somewhere. It's nothing like the USA trash TV kitchen nightmares.
>>15724732Yes. He is a TV personality but he's also got more Michelin stars than anyone else.>>15724790Gordon plays to his audience. Thats why the American version is so bombastic and dramatic. He understands catering to your audience is an important part of being a chef.
>>15724739kek he fell for the meme
>>15724732is everyone on this site fucking retarded and young? another post asked how McD's became popular if there are hundreds of other cheap burger places.do you think Ramsay just became relevant because you saw him on tik tok? or because all his hell's kitchens episodes are free now? yes he's a good fucking chef. he owned and operated a bunch of world class restaurants around the world. he is very theatrical and is one of the pioneers in in the professional/entertainer crossover.
Of course he's a good chef, his records speak for themselves in terms of his Michelin stars. The main reason he's so popular is because of his entertaining personality though
>>15724732the only bad thing about him is he is a (((scot)))
>>15724996>he's also got more Michelin stars than anyone else.Thats blatantly false.

>>15724732Personally my measure of a good chef is whether or not they can execute the simplest of meals. Take grilled cheese for example. Any "chef" who can't pull of melting cheese between two slices of nicely toasted bread doesn't deserve to call themselves a chef. Does anyone know if Gordon has ever filmed himself making a humble grilled cheese? That would answer our questions well.
>>15724732He was good, but then he got a taste of making American television and went downhill fast.

Temperature control is paramount. A good chef needs not to rely upon adding cream or cheats, just good technique.
>>15724732Yeah, a great one!
reminder that James May beat Ramsay at making fish pies
>>15724732he just mimics that man who taught him, Marco Peirre White, who taught all the big Celebrity chefs, while Gordon is fun angry calling people donuts, Marco was an actual sociopath, both are good cooks though
>>15724996imagine giving a shit about gold stars from a tire company
>>15725481this is how I feel when I'm cooking or preparing food in front of "an audience". I can make delicious food with no worries on my own, but with someone at the table watching me work, I feel I can see every indelicate slipup, every jerk of the wrist, every dripped-drop, etc. in hyperfocus. And it is moritfying.
>>15725715>make sure bread isn't too thick>cuts inch thick pieces>randomly putting in kimchi>salts the breadGordon, pls. Butter, bread, cheese. That's all you need.
>>15725698>Marco was an actual sociopathSource?
>>15725875>source his genes betrayed him
>>15725715What the fuck. Even comment section is shitting on him.
>>15725893Who is that faggot?
I like his shows, both usa and ukVery good food shows
>>15725356>>15725715OH MY GOD NO GORDON NO WHAT ARE YOU THINKING???
>>15724732He’s just an asshole
>>15725715>solo guitar riffs in backgroundi hate american television
he 3 things1. a great chef and restaurateur2. a tv celebrity and media character3. fucking old and desperate for attention & relevance OR a victim of his producers that are wringing him for every penny
>>15727452if you can't tell the top one is significantly bigger than the bottom u have autism friend.
literally google it you retard
>>15725875Watch his first TV show.
>>15725628reminder that I beat Ramsay at making grilled cheese
>>15725752>two types of cheese>throw them next to each other half and half instead of shredding and mixing>>15727134Please develop an equal aversion to American imageboards.
>>15726438Marco Pierre White's son. A literal subhuman.
>>15727689He doesnt even try to eat the bottom one.
>>15724739That’s a work brother
>>15724790Yeah the uk show is pretty good less theatrics but I noticed on the newest season of Hell’s Kitchen he’s more just himself less with the angry chef gimmick
>>15724732He used to be a fantastic chef. He sold out and now he fucks up grilled cheeses and whatever the hell >>15725481 is
>>15727689bottom one is still too big
He once set fire to James Cordens studio trying to fry bacon.
>>15724732he makes me lol
>>15724732if i had to guess he's a pedophile who cooked children for the elite rituals
>>15729407if i had to guess you haven't taken your meds yet today anon
>>15725703Top tier kek
>>15725215Do you feel the same way about Christian AKA Dubs Man?
>>15724732https://youtu.be/xzAbpWISfKEMarco is more intimidating anyway
Haven't been to a restaurant of his he actually works in since the mid 2000s but he certainly was a stellar chef, and his restaurants are still good. However I just see him as an entertainer now. Makes good informative shows for the UK market and makes retarded same script 10 season shows for the retarded Amerifat buffoon market. He knows which one is easier and makes him more money.
>>15725875In Anthony Bourdain's book Kitchen Confidential he talks about a time when a chef de partie was complaining about being too hot in MPWs kitchen. MPW got a knife and cut the back panel out of his chefs jacket while he was wearing it and told him he should be nice and cool now.
Go watch Boiling Point on Youtube.Great documentary about him opening his first restaurants and trying to get 3 Michelin stars. Bonus points for Marco Pierre White appearances
>>15724732I think he's a very good chef that knows how to play the game and how to market himself very, very well. >>15724790>>15727940I wish they went back to the more genuine, UK type of kitchen nightmares. So much better.
>>15724732I think everyone ITT agrees that he was a great chef trained under another highly exceptional chef, but once he fell for the fame and money meme his skills declined and went to the shitter.
>>15731435>is skills declined and went to the shitter.I mean maybe but how do you know this?
>>15724739how would you feel if paying customers came to your restaurant expecting high quality dining and someone walks up and drops raw bland shit infront of you and asks you to serve it to a customer? i bet you would get pretty mad.
>>15725715>The kimchi, which will give a nice spicy texture>spicy texture I had to turn it off
>>15724739T. Never worked in a kitchen
>>15725703unironically, you should.
>>15727689The bottom one is big but still manageable to fits in your palm and also stacks a bit higher.
