Entertaining and definately a smart business man. Got to give credit where its due, the Gordons Kitchen Nightmares series was pretty funny.

From what I have been reading he has a normal cooking show comming out soon in the US... If true that will be quite the twist.

Hope this is true, I will keep my fingers crossed. I so admire his demand for cleanliness. US could sure use some of his expectations. Most of his shows Nightmares, are properly titled. Nightmare! Who knows what one eats when they go to restaurant. Thankful he exposed some.

thanks for info.

I get BBC America on my cable package and must say that I prefer the English episodes of Kitchen Nightmares to the American episodes

He apparently knows how to run them, as he's still making money. .QUOTE]

Thanks for the clarification, Breezycooking. :)

My opinion of the man remains unchanged. Everyone is going through rough times and relying on just media reporting of a man's fate isn't fair. I still have faith in gordon, although I still prefer his UK shows over the US ones.

Yep. I enjoyed it quite a bit, because Dave was my guy from the beginning. I thought he would have quit a while back due to his arm injury.

While I do definitely agree with you that one shouldn't rely on the media, & I also definitely do not automatically take as indisputable fact everything I read, the serious financial problems re: Gordon's empire were reiterated by the man himself in personal interviews.

Is he an excellent showman & businessman? Yes. Did he get quite a bit ahead of himself & perhaps overestimate his popularity & $$ draw-power abroad? Yes.

There is a famous chef in NY -Eric Rippert - when he instructs or
critiques he is quiet and gentle and IMHO much more effective than
Ramsey. I have a feeling Ramsey might be playing his part as
directed by the writers and producers.
I agree with you. One never learns well when screamed at. Ramsey has a very low tolerance of others below his level of knowledge. In my own opinion he is a foul mouthed, would like to have been a professional soccor player but, instead became a chef. Ramsey requires no direction it is truly his natural behaviour to be an A--hole.
