Anyone see Gordon Ramsay's new show?

"Kitchen Nightmares"...restaurants that are falling apart, and Chef Ramsay comes in and basically acts as a consultant to turn the business around. I saw one episode and I'm hooked...you should see the shape some of these restaurants are in!

No, haven't seen the show. However, Buck and I don't usually look at any TV until at least 8 or 8:30 p.m. this time of the year. Don't have any clue about what's new that is on this year. Is this program on the Food channel?

I just got done watching it and I'm definitely hooked, too! Last week he was pretty easy on those folks but tonight, he was in fine form. It's such a cool show.

Yea I just watched last night's episode..I can't believe a restaraunt would serve rotting food to customers. Makes me wonder what some of the restaraunts I go to are like "behind the scenes".

It's also funny how the General Manager will just "pass the buck" onto everybody else. If you're the GM, you're responsible for EVERYTHING!

Chef

We watch him on a cable show that is filmed in different locations, other than the states. Always mentions the area but who remembers the details. I'll never get to eat there. Anyway, he feels the way a person should be about serving food. Very disciplined and clean. I believe he has two restaurants here in the states. He really is motivater and doesn't worry about who he insults but he means it for their own good. I personally like someone who tells it like it is. Not everyone feels this way I know. He also uses crude language, I believe it is to impress them about what he says. The show is much better on cable. Must have something to do with the filming that they do. Glad you like it too.

I think he does it for "shock value". I find it gets to be a bit much after awhile. It really amazes me how some of these people stay in business. I think they are so deep into it, that they can't see the forest for the trees.

Shock

Lorraine, you are absolutely right! Exactly the way you would feel about your own meal. What I question now, is when I eat in restaurant what goes on in their kitchen. I doubt whether people really care as long as they don't have to prepare it. Most people do not think cooking is interest ing. Chef does! I doubt whether I would want him watching me prepare meal. Not in this small kitchen. I do care if there are flies in the house and food on the floor would be eaten by the dogs before I could serve it.

Most people get turned off by his language. I agree with you 'shock value'!

I caught the end of the episode with the Italian restaurant in NY. That owner was such a dope. He deserves to be out of business.
