If you’ve seen Hell’s Kitchen on Fox, you probably already have an opinion about Chef Gordon Ramsey. And if you’ve only seen him on that show, you might have a low opinion of him because of the way he rants and raves on that show.
Well, there’s a new show coming this Fall, and Gordon’s back. The show is: Kitchen Nightmares. You might think of skipping that show just because of Gordon Ramsey.
That would be a mistake.
If the show is anything the British version of the show, Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares, you’re going to see a completely different version of Gordon Ramsey. If you have a satellite dish and subscribe to BBC America, you can see what I’m talking about. Ramsey has help quite a few kitchens come back from the brink, and he’s very helpful and sympathetic. He does a lot of things to help the restaurants out of whatever rut they’re in.
Typical problems are: a menu that’s WAY too big; owners that are losing money and who raise prices to try and compensate; chefs that try and to make dishes that are much too fancy for their skills.
I really enjoy the British version of the show, and I’m looking forward to the American version. It’s going to air on Thursday nights, 9pm Eastern.
