Editorial Reviews

Can you stand the heat?


Sharp-tongued, culinary maestro Chef Gordon Ramsay brings his brand of nightmarish coaching to young - and sometimes brash - amateur chefs all competing for a job in his kitchen. In this new series, Ramsay shows his protégés the hard reality of working in a kitchen by taking over a restaurant and inviting 60 specially-selected diners who will use their wallets to vote for which chef will win - and if they don t like the food, they don t pay!

Not confined to the kitchen, Ramsay also travels all over the world in pursuit of the freshest straight-out-of-the-sea or off-the-pasture ingredients and demonstrates how you can prepare the most authentic gourmet dishes in the world... right on your own stove.

Always energetic and quick to denounce bad food and incompetence, Chef Gordon Ramsay whips up portions of discipline that will give you a pretty good idea of why they call this show "The f Word".


Episode highlights include celebrity guest diners Joan Collins, Jonathan Ross, Richard Wilson, Sharon Osbourne and many more...

I love this show and catch it on BBCA whenever I can (I'm watching season 3 on my DVR at this very moment). Here you can see the real Gordon Ramsay at work with real people. Yes, he's demanding in the kitchen but it's not the over dramatized Fox version we see in the US.

The F Word (which is Food, not that other four letter f word he likes) is a variety show set in The F Word restaurant. Every week he invites a brigade of amateur cooks to serve 50 people each weekend, then rates them based on how many customers pay at the end of the day.

Throughout the cooking service there are segments that include: a run through of the recipes being cooked, a check-in with a British celebrity guest, making fun of celebrity chefs, alternative food sources (e.g. haggis, squirrel, horse milk), teaching busy people to cook, celebrity cooking challenge and other food related topics.

I especially like the honesty from a culinary point of view, particularly the segments about where our food comes from, something we Americans aren't always so keen to know about. In Season 1, Gordon takes the viewer through the experience of raising his own turkeys and then processing them for a meal in his kitchen. You get to meet his wife and four kids in the process too. Season 2 follows pigs and Season 3 follows sheep.

Being a program from the UK, they do show a lot more than most American shows (e.g. during the butchering process), but if you're willing to learn a bit more about your food and would like to see more of the real Gordon Ramsay, give this series a chance. If you're not sure, find someone who has BBCA and you can catch the occasional re-run or new Season 3 episodes (Winter 2009).

BTW, I ate at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road (his three Michelin Star flagship in London) in October. It was most excellent, though the weak dollar was a bit of a bummer.

Love him or hate him, you can't deny that Gordon has a real passion for food. This series, in my opinion, gives viewers a better opportunity to see how strongly Gordon takes his commitment to good food. Quality is integral to fresh, well-produced fruit, vegetables and meat and I think it's a very positive thing to know exactly what we as consumers and home cooks should be looking for as we make a stronger effort to eat better, support local economies and commit to a better standard of living.

In this particular series, Gordon (together with his children) raise turkeys and garden veggies. At the same time, he starts his controversial Get Women Back Into the Kitchen campaign with several celebrity guests (including Joan Collins, infamous in Ramsay's backstory as she was kicked out of one of his restaurants together with a warring food critic). He's got an excellent recurring segment in which he shows you how to prepare the very meals being served in the show's restaurant.

The only thing that I disliked about the DVD itself was the editing of Gordon's other favorite 'f' word. Anyone familiar with Ramsay, his shows or his personality would know before purchasing any of his DVDs that this word is an integral part of his lexicon. The edits are annoying and unnecessary, in my opinion.

Gordon Ramsay is a way different person in the UK than in the US. If you'd like to purchase this hoping that he'll call someone's signature dish "F****ng Dreadful," this is not for you. This show is for chefs and people passionate about food. It is very educational, funny at times, and very interesting. It's my favorite show of all time and you should catch it on TV (BBC America or Channel 4 in the UK) before you decide to buy it.

I love to see this side of the Hell's Kitchen Gordon and the Kitchen Nightmares Gordon - this is the family man Gordon - the dad, the husband, the friend. You see the vulnerable Gordon, the funny Gordon. You also get good cooking ideas and with this show you actually see Gordon support his staff of the day when he feels the critisism of the diners is too harsh.

FOOD!!! This series is highly entertaining and informative however I live in the US and this series is from the UK thus I am not familiar with the guests of honor and celebrities. Often he uses ingredients that require a little Googling to figure out what he means. But none the less it's a great show where Chef Ramsay bares many of his personal secrets.

If you enjoy cooking and learning about the different aspects of cooking, you will like this series. Yes, he swears, he's not all hyped up like they made him on Kitchen Nightmares. This series shows the better side of Gordon.
