Storyline

Hell hath no fury like an angry chef, and no chef has a sharper temper than Gordon Ramsay when things go wrong in the kitchen. The star of the highly rated culinary boot camp HELL'S KITCHEN returns to FOX with another sizzling unscripted series, KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. This time, Chef Ramsay hits the road, in each episode tackling a restaurant in crisis and exposing the stressful realities of trying to run a successful food business. For restaurant owners in crisis with lazy chefs in the kitchen, temperamental wait staffs and few and unhappy diners, it's time to call in the restaurant industry's equivalent of 911.

What do restaurants must do to be part of that show?
8 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Restaurants who take part of that show will receive a huge advertising boost: they become "endorsed" by a 3 Stars Chef; that same Chef always organizes a special night where, oh coincidence, a local food celebrity just decides to come; and as a bonus, the restaurant receives a free overnight complete re-modeling (new furniture, new paintings, new roof, new lighting, etc...). So I guess that a few thousands are queuing up. What must they do to become the lucky ones? 1) Pay money to Fox or Ramsey Inc? 2) Look as miserable as possible.... The show will only work if the kitchen is in disarray, and there is a juicy familial or management problem. I suppose that some restaurants must brainstorm about how to arrange a total mess so that they have a chance to appear. Now the recipes of Gordon are as simple as the problem: father MUST delegate to son, simple menu, fresh ingredients, stop using microwave, taste the food, fire some unmotivated staff. Well, if life were that easy, there would be much more Michelin starred restaurants that there are now.... What about the logistical nightmare about keeping quality suppliers, minimize stock food to keep it fresh, trying new recipes for hours until the cook finds the perfect combination... this is what kitchen is all about, and you learn in with years of practice, now with a magician shouting common sense advice. In one episode, Gordon arranges the surprise wedding of a pair of Managers, with everything ready... GIVE ME A BREEAAAAAAAKKKKK.....
