    I used to hate him. I thought he was the biggest d**k ever. I watched Kitchen Nightmares and gained loads of respect for the guy. He's pretty damn funny, too.

    i actually enjoyed the food at the London. food was decently priced, portions are a little small, but a very nice restaurant to take your significant other to.

    i must agree, gordon ramsay is pure genius! his shows on the bbc are more funny(/funnier?) i think. his shows in america seem a bit focused on his "nasty" side.

    So many 'professionals' have their bar set so low they should not even qualify for 'amateur' status. Gordon tells it like it is and (usually!) for good reason. We need more straight shooters, across all industries, to thrive in the Global economy. There is far too much complacency around.

    Ramsey is King in my book

    Isn't he a member here? I could have swore I read in a thread someone mentioned he was.

    Sadly never been to any of his restaurants but I did run into him at a charity thing and he is definitely a high energy person, has a penetrating voice and is a pretty good sized dude. I can see how he has that raging rugger image, which like someone said before seems to be played up because although he looked like he could pop at any moment he was a very nice guy. I will say though someone in the group got him started on something and he is very funny and did start slipping and cursing alot after a minute or so (not that the company would have been offended, still I think he was trying to keep it clean).

    Afterwards I did some digging around the internet for him and he does pride himself on being a straight shooter but also did say he amps it up a bit for TV. And I will say on BBCs Kitchen Nightmares he does do a great job of getting deep sometimes with the people he is helping!

    UK version of Kitchen Nightmares is very good because it's totally reality.

    US version is like Extreme Makeover Home Edition. It's good, but I like the underproduced realism of the UK.

    Hell's Kitchen is great, even though the winners are often seemingly white trash long haired freaks that I would not want touching food I would be introducing into my digestive tract.

    Gordon is the man because of his appearances on Top Gear, he has good style, and he's a car guy it seems.

    I have friends that have trained under him in the U.K. They say he is nothing like the show...very professional.In europe,there is a very traditional system and brigade that a young chef follows and understands.Ramsey is a huge supporter of that system....as opposed to all the young wannabe's here,where they all think going to the CIA makes them an allstar chef by their 21st b-day! His show sucks In my opinion....TopChef is much better with talented people for the most part.
