A second helping of the original U.K. series that launched Britain's most celebrated and colorful chef to international notoriety. The star of Fox's Hell's Kitchen and their U.S. version of Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay first brought his vast expertise to TV in this International Emmyr-winning British reality hit seen on BBC America. Kitchen Nightmares U.K. gives Ramsay one week to turn around failing restaurants. He does it with a combination of sound business sense, a perfectly attuned palate, and more than a pinch of profanity. This 3-volume DVD boxed set includes ten episodes: the eight episodes that comprise the second U.K. series and the two related Kitchen Nightmares Revisited episodes.
"Undeniably the world's greatest TV chef" --NPR
There are a million ways to ruin a restaurant, but only one man has the audacity to attempt a rescue: Gordon Ramsay, "the Dr. House of sick restaurants" (NPR). In his storied career, Ramsay has earned 16 Michelin stars and launched culinary successes around the globe. This International Emmy®-winning series gives him one week to bring foundering restaurants back from the brink of collapse.
Dishing out heaping helpings of truth--liberally peppered with profanity--Ramsay goes eyeball to eyeball with lazy chefs, surly servers, and clueless owners, sharing his unbridled passion for food and hard-won business acumen. And he always returns later to see whether his interventions have worked. Part comedy, part drama, and all reality, these Kitchen Nightmares give a strikingly unglamorous glimpse into the inner workings of restaurants and the people who run them.
DVD FEATURE INCLUDES biography of Gordon Ramsay.
