Gordon Ramsey's F Word

OK, so now I know where FN gets their ideas. From one F___ing episode of Gordon Ramsey's show. The gratuitous f bomb dropping was in honor of Gordon.

In one show, he does a Tyler Florence, i.e. help some poor unsuspecting and hopeless soul to cook something decent, in this case two nurses with their Sunday supper, a very big deal in the UK. He does a throwdown, he takes on a friend and his favorite recipe. He does a segment on where the foods come from, in this case comparing a wild cod with an organic farm raised cod. He also is up to his old tricks with helping a bunch of guys with their restaurnat. All in one show. The best part was that all the verdicts are from the voice of the people, he puts everything to the test. Kind of cool, think I'll watch it more often now. BBCA.

  1. I love the show. I think it would be cool to gete dressed down in an f bomb tirade by G Ramsey about over dressing something or over searing this. Its funny to see these peoples reaction because if they laugh it off he kills them, if they seem unaffected he tells them they don't have the heart for it and so on. Its god clean meanness.

      This show is great. Have you watched Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen? They are also supposed to be filming Kichen Nightmares US version.
      Gordon Ramsey is truly talented

        I like him because he doesn't take BS from anyone. He sees through the obsequious yes-men and the pandering BSers. He calls people out on the carpet for being unfaithful to themselves. Its brilliant.

          I loved Kitchen Nightmares - and am looking forward to the US version!

          I love this show, it is by far one of my favorites. Kitchen Nightmares is excellent also, I just wish there were more episodes. I am a big fan of Hell's Kitchen as well. Actually, I have come to the conclusion that anything that Gordon does, I am a fan of. Also read his book "Roasting in Hell's Kitchen" - good read. It is almost like you can hear his voice in every word!!
