Is Gordon Really a Great Chef? - Kitchen Nightmares

  • Published on Oct 30, 2009
    The Secret Garden is launching their new menu tonight and most of the staff seem happy with Gordon's changes. However, the head chef questions whether or not Gordon really knows what he's talking about. He feels that he might be more qualified than Chef Ramsay when it comes to handling the kitchen.

    lol immigrant. He clearly said these were simple, easy dishes not michelin star meals.. probably to make it simple for your tiny brain to understand.

    Oh god, I watched this with one of my friends, who is NEVER WRONG in his view. He said "Oh my god that is disgusting, they aren't wearing gloves. It is against the law in most places to cook without gloves. You will get food poisoning so easily. I would never step foot in there." I never argue with the dude cause he is so delusional it's insane. So I just said "uh, yeah dude, that's something huh". CMON the only restaurants that wear gloves are fast food joints! That doesn't make the local mcdonalds more sanitary than the closest grill!

      @dannyphehe He constantly gives everyone shit for eating cooked food and meat. The guy is vegan raw or what ever he calls it. Anyway. he only eats raw, non processed foods. He constantly complains about how he is feeling. The diet does NOT work for him, he constantly has stomach problems, which includes a lot of diarrhea and gas, plus a lot of other stuff. He calls that "getting rid of toxins". But I don't think so... I don't care what anyone believes, but that isn't getting rid of toxins. That is your body in shock. I HAVE studied nutrition and other subjects that have to do with the human body and how it reacts to certain things, inc medication.
      This guy is a major extreme though. I don't really have anything against vegan, raw, what ever. Although I personally don't think a raw diet is healthy, I wont say anything to you to try to convert you to a different way of life. You make your own decisions. But on the other hand, if you try to tell me that my diet is wrong, or try to convert me in any way then I will BOMBARD you with every fucking fact that I can dish out. Which includes over 10 years of classes/experience and everything else (professional sources).

    Gordon is a great chef. From him I learned that store bought is more expensive and not nearly as good as fresh, that there is a big difference between cooking for friends and cooking for a restaurant; in a restaurant the cost of the dish is paramount. I also learned a lot about how to keep foods safe and keep my kitchen clean. None of those things I learned from TV cooking shows where the recipe is King.

    Gordon is incredible to watch and learn from. He truly is a master of his craft. Nobody is perfect, but Mr. Ramsay busted his ass to get to where he is today. He's a hard worker at heart, and I cant help but respect the man for his professionalism, skill and work ethic.

  • Timothy Ho
    Timothy Ho 4 years ago +1423

    Gordon Ramsay didn't get his Michelin stars or fame without having to go through intense obstacles and challenges. That is why. What makes a man is not his goals alone but how he makes it to those goals. When gordon was a sous chef he payed attention, kept quiet while his head chef taught him and the rest of his team. I forgot the guy's name but he shouted, screamed and rage even more than gordon ever did. All because he wanted to get the best out of his chefs. I'm not spewing bullshit if thats what you haters think. But if you really believe that he's the 'devil' chef everyone thinks he is then you're damn wrong. The only reason why he is named that title is because he has quite a number of TV shows. Everyone knows how he's like in the kitchen because of that. But nobody realises that among all the chefs in those high quality restaurants.... at least 75% rage like he does. All for the sake of discipline and to get the best out of them by making them sound weak.. So the others under them will think 'shit I have to prove myself, no time for being a slow dick erecting SOB.' many of those that hate him should really watch his shows. Like Hotel Hell, Kitchen Nightmares and stuff. Because he shows that he cares for the people in trouble and in need of desperate help. Not looking at these videos and judging him as a devil just because he says a few shit words.

    It's hard to believe the guy is actually that stupid. I'm sure it was part of the deal for him to act like an insufferably arrogant Frenchman to stir up the viewers. Artificially portraying a conflict between a "good guy" and an "asshole" is the most basic reality TV trick since people like to see the "good guy" win in the end.

    Honestly if anyone (and I seriously mean anyone) ever questions Gordon Ramsey's culinary expertise (Except for a few other well known chefs such as Jamie Oliver and Heston Bluementhal) then not only will get your ass whooped but you will also get humiliated badly because of his/her lack of expertise in culinary cooking.
    In other words do not question Gordon's Knowledge unless you have studied culinary cooking at the same place as him and if you have the same amount or more experience then him which to be honest not a lot of people fit under that criteria.

    Gordon specialises in French cookery, which is famously simple, yet delicious and effective. It doesn't need 50 ingredients, it just needs to look and taste good. It's a great cuisine and Gordon knows that, and serves it in his restaurants. But this arrogant twat who owns this shit restaurant is so up himself, but he can't even cook or run a clean restaurant! Gordon's one of the world's best chefs.
