I think this is a great series. One I never miss. So much more than just another cookery programme. In fact, there is very little actual cooking in the show. It is, rather, an entertaining way of demonstrating how to run a proper restaurant business, by showing all the pitfalls in the form of REAL failing businesses. In other words, a 'How NOT to do it' show.
In some of the episodes, the owners are so arrogant, and think they know it all, but are losing staggering amounts of money every week. Ramsay has the patience, if not the language, of a saint! Great show. It'll make you wonder about the state of the kitchens next time you're in your favourite restaurant!
