Set in the high-octane environment of a glamorous and bustling restaurant, all the action is set against the backdrop of the drama of a full working kitchen staffed by some of the best chefs in the country. Over the course of the show Gordon and his brigade prepare a three-course meal for diners who all share Gordon's passion for food. Gordon launches his campaign to 'Get Women Back in the Kitchen' and puts his reputation on the line in 'Recipe Challenge' when he invites a member of the public to pitch their recipe against his. Up and coming cooks and chefs from around the UK fight to earn a job in one of Gordon's restaurant kitchens: every week two hopefuls help Gordon's brigade prepare dinner in the restaurant. Written by
As a self-confessed Anglo-phile, this show fulfills my need to check out the British culture. Chef Ramsay is one of the most compelling personalities on either side of the pond. He is so passionate about his profession, which usually leads to yelling, screaming and cursing. Not many other professions can get away with this.
My favorite part of the show is the "Recipe Challenge" where a celebrity challenges Gordon to cook the same dish. It's hilarious because--unbelievably--Gordo usually loses these, and his reactions are priceless.
This is such an entertaining show which shows 2 sides of Gordon: at home--with his adorable kids--and at work.
