>> No.15724790

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.

>> No.15724996

Yes. He is a TV personality but he's also got more Michelin stars than anyone else.
Gordon 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.

kek he fell for the meme

>> No.15725074

is 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.

>> No.15725075

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

Thats blatantly false.

Personally 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.

>> No.15725426

He was good, but then he got a taste of making American television and went downhill fast.

They used to say that eggs was the litmus of beginning chef to actual chef. Temperature control is paramount. A good chef needs not to rely upon adding cream or cheats, just good technique.

this 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.

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.

>> No.15731299


In 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.
