I am in no way an aspiring chef, but I have always liked to play around with food to see what I can cook up. It normally turns out pretty good if I should say it myself, and I rarely experience any kitchen nightmares. I guess those are the domain of Gordon Ramsey who has become my favourite chef and television personality. Should you have lived in a cave the past years, this is who Gordon Ramsey is:
Gordon James Ramsay, OBE (born November 8, 1966 in Johnstone, Scotland) is a Scottish chef, television personality and entrepreneur. He has been awarded a total of twelve Michelin stars, and as of April 2008 is one of only three chefs in the UK whose restaurant is rated at three Michelin stars. He is famous in the UK for presenting TV programmes about competitive cookery and food such as Hell’s Kitchen and The F-Word. He is best known in the United States as the host of FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen, which premiered in May 2005, and of Kitchen Nightmares, which premiered in September 2007, based on his successful British show Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares.
In addition to this he is probably best know for using the F-Word several times during his television shows, I believe it has been counted that he used it more than 50 times during a 60 minute television program. Do not let that put you of, the guy is simply brilliant in what he does.
I found a video clip on You Tube from when he went to Norway (my native country), did a dive to catch a king-crab and then cooked it on the spot. Here it is:
You can find both Hell’s Kitchen (the US version is better than the UK version), Kitchen Nightmares, The F-Word and several videos with great cooking tips on You Tube. just do a search fro it and get hooked. He has also written several great cookery books and made several DVD’s that can be bought from a bookstore og E-bay.
