Not sure if this was a "new" episode, but it was new to me and perhaps the best episode I've seen so far.
Watch Gordon Ramsey physically remove a crazy chef!
Watch Gordon run a restaurant by himself!
Listen as Gordon speaks French!
Marvel as Gordon gets excited about vegetarian cuisine!
See the poor little rich girl using Daddy's money to open a restaurant in Paris get the Ramsey treatment.
I think I have to set the DVR to record this one when it comes on again. Brilliant!
Paging Marianne Faithful...
yeah...some form of accoutrement was being appreciated by everyone associated with that resto. ...Surprised (French-speaking!) Ramsay didn't call them on it...
I'm glad the new chef got a second chance elswehere after that debacle.
I think it all comes down to the dad(Mr. Moneybanks), really. Something happened in the past that he feels enough guilt to fund his dilettante daughter's every self-destructive whim. It was all so horrifically transparent.
I'm glad you posted this! I too just saw this one for the first time and loved it. You forgot
See beautiful shots of Paris (sunny and rainy)
And on a personal note:
See Gordon and some Scottish bird have a chat in the same square where my kids and I played barely one year ago.....
And I loved the way it ended - with India in London. I knew he would sort her out (so to speak).
I just saw this episode for the first time this week. Yes, Mr LJS and I also suspected that drugs must be playing some part in the shambles of that restaurant (and the lifestyle that seemed to go along with it). I was equally surprised that GR didn't metion that more specifically-I think maybe he felt sorry for Dad-I know I did...I remembered the Irish Gastropub episode set back in England when the chef son of the hard-working family had a substance abuse problem and GR was so compassionate.
Then, when I did the math for myself, all I could think was "I could do that" ...making a success of a teensy, veggie restaurant in Paris.
Totally agree. Loved the Fireman's Carry all the way up the street.
My problem was that I had recorded the program, and everything was running a couple of minutes late, so we didn't get to see what happened about India (who looks like a real chef!)
Can anybody tell me what happened please?
