Hell's Kitchen

Another season of Hell's Kitchen is back on Tuesday. I can't wait!

I love watching those types of cooking shows. Top Chef. Hell's Kitchen, etc. Of all of them, I would never subject myself to Chef Ramsey's tantrums, because I'd have a hissy fit if someone spoke to me like that. Yes, I know....don't work in a kitchen. Seriously, I'd be the feature on the six o'clock news. Live, Local, and Late-breaking: Cooking contestant Sets Star Chef on Fire. I suppose the ratings for that show might go up. :)

I feel the same way. If I were ever a contestant on Hell's Kitchen, I would probably be the 1st person to get eliminated.

It's kind of like watching a train wreck, isn't it? I often cringe at his tantrums and get sick of hearing bleeps for his language, but still I watch. Hmmm....I wonder if his poor behavior is just a performance, or if he actually got so far ahead in the culinary world by being an AH.
A good question for our professional chef's here........did you ever encounter anyone like Gordon Ramsey?

I love, love, love to watch that show... Many of my friends and family have asked me why I don't try out for that show, and my answer is much like the above posts... The minute GR looked at me crossed eyed ready to tell me what a DA i was i would immediately start crying... The smoke would them come pouring out of my ears, and the rest would make headlines, for weeks i'm sure...

Yes. Years ago in Europe I did. But he was one of the tops in his field and I wanted to use him for all he's worth.

Never in the kitchen. There was one fellow who would totally go off on the front of house guys though....pretty much nightly. He'd also go off on his partner (which is why they parted ways after the place had been open about six months) and the kitchen manager....but the kitchen crew were totally sacred to him.

Beyond that though, I was lucky enough to work with some of the most even tempered chefs around. Funny, they never got their own television shows....the one from the paragraph above was a frequent guest on the various PBS shows of the eighties though.

Interesting Kathleen. Did he verbally abuse you like Gordon Ramsey does?

I worked for a Dentist once, who behaved like a raving lunatic...it was the worse working experience of my life. I learned a lot from the jerk, but when I walked out on his abuse he blackballed me with lies to the rest of the Dentist's in town. I was never able to work as a dental assistant again. It taught me a very good lesson at a young age........never to settle for a lack of respect.

In Hell's Kitchen Chef Ramsey is a pig to work with, no doubt. But I can't abide him and won't have his leary face and foul mouth sullying my living room, screaming out of my telly.

His reputation in the past as a business man leaves much to be desired.
