  • Horrible Gordon


    I 'm Italian, Italian doc, been born and grown in the North of Italy, from Italian parents.

    First of all, the restaurants "Italians" visited by Ramsey and also their chefs don't have anything of Italian, not even the name that is also often wrong.

    They don't know the true Italian cuisine and don't have the ability and the Italian culinary tradition, by now lost in the years and Americanized (the Italian tastes are simpler and less fats than your prejudice has convinced you)

    Al least, not even Gordon knows how to cook Italian. He wants to make it believe, unfortunately he massacres, ashamedly ruining her, recipes of the tradition of the kitchen above all of the South of Italy (yes, because, in Italy, the kitchen isn't only one, but it also varies from a city to the other)

    The kitchen that you know is an americanization of that Italian and completely false.


    Ah,I add that from us the attention for the food also brings the attention to the careful research of raw materials and in the preparation and not only do we have restaurants in conditions such as those seen in the transmission, but we have a police authority preceded (the NAS) to the control of the respect of all the severeest rules applied by the Ministry of the Health.

    I'm sorry for my Englishmoreless
  • Americanization ruins another great show

    I recently binge watched my way through the entire UK version of this show and loved every minute of it. Gordon Ramsay was a delight to watch working with the chefs on the show whether he was tearing them down or building them up.

    I was interested to see how the show fared in being transformed for an American audience. I was very disappointed. It's lost all of the charm it had in favour of dramatic cuts, creative editing and an unnecessarily loud soundtrack. More swearing and yelling, less discussions about food. More incompetence with little to no payoff or turnaround on the restauranteurs parts and worst of all, the narration. I don't know if I'll make it through the rest of season one of the US version. I hope he makes more in the UK style some day.moreless
  • Love his attitude and the show!

    Chef Ramsay reminds me of myself when I go to restaurants. It seems I have trouble controlling my tongue when I taste something bad. A couple of weeks ago, I went to a place that claims to have fresh fish and on the sign it said "Fresh-Frozen" and I said to the guy behind the counter "Is it fresh or is it frozen?" he laughed and said it's "Freshly Frozen" I'm like you have got to be kidding me. I got quite angry and said "F*** there's nothing fresh about frozen fish". Too many people say that he's foul mouthed and doesn't control his temper but, people need a reality check when they are so delusional to believe that their restaurant is great and their food is great. They fail to realize that no matter what they think, their restaurant wouldn't be failing if, they took care of it.moreless
  • Kitchen Nightmare

    I have been a chef for twenty years and I can't understand how dirty some of these restaurants are. Where is the Health Department in some of those places ?
