absolute fucking madman
I was watching his Cookery Course or whatever it's called, and it looks simple enough, but I doubt I can find like a 3rd of the ingredients he uses.
A part of me really wanted to become a chef because of this guy, but at the end of the day I care more about health than taste so a career as a food artisan is a bad idea.
Either way, his work ethic and dedication towards the perfection for his craft is inspiring.
I like his television shows. Wouldn't pay to eat at one of his restaurants. It's the same thing with Emeril: when you're ruling an empire and not actually in the kitchen anymore there's no assurance the places trading on your name are actually living up to your standards.
>tfw Ramsay splattered his risotto all over your face once in Bournemouth
This is a childrens program. You'll notice half the time he's dressing up and making the worst jokes of all time, of all time, that would only appeal to a child.
If an adult could stomach this by himself? I'd be worried for his mental well-being.
You call it "a little campy" but that's being generous. He's a grown ass man acting like a clown. No matter what good or valid tips he might have read off the teleprompter, the show format is unbearable. It's Bill Nye for cooking. There's actual shit in there that will teach you, but it's designed to entertain kids while teaching instead of just being the information, which would be a far better television show.
I make his chicken piccata. Did it his way a few times, creme fraiche is fucking expensive and haven't found a good caper I like yet, so instead I use the juice from half a lemon for the sauce.
fucking good though
Cool opinion and stuff but literally every successful informational TV show has had some form of entertainment to it, pure information is for text books.
needs to cut back on the belligerence, but when he's just being conversational, or instructional, he's alright. I've had to work with too many people who try to take after him, and I've had to pull a few of them off the line and tell them "You can and will run this kitchen with tact. I will not lose any members of my core crew because you lose control on the line."
>needs to cut back on the belligerence
That's mainly for the television. I've never worked in a kitchen but I can understand it's stressful and very taxing on everyone involved. So the head must keep a close eye on things and instantly tell anyone fucking up to stop, but too much creates a non-nice (non productive) work environment.
The entertainment shouldn't be for grade school children. You literally cannot defend this. You are not going to somehow convince me that it is good or that it benefits the program.
>No matter what good or valid tips he might have read off the teleprompter
because there's no way he learned it and researched it himself. you sure do sound cynical right now!
>There's actual shit in there that will teach you, but it's designed to entertain kids
no, it's designed for the daytime audience. show me a 7 year old that loves watching alton brown and making a fucking meatloaf. not that there aren't any, but cmon, be realistic. jesus.
I don't think he's funny either, he's got a campy easy to enjoy personality though, and that's enough for a tv show. just chill the FUCK out my dude.
the occasional "Unfuck yourself" or whatever, sure... and yeah, I know it's for TV, but some newbs, and the occasional old-guard curmudgeon don't get it - if people don't want to work for you, they won't.
I cannot believe you are defending his cheesy skits and constant bullshit. Good Eats is a trash program only because of the childish filler, there is no redeeming it, there is no defending it, there is no justifying your enjoyment of it. You have supremely awful taste in television.
