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.

Either side of the Atlantic and it's offensive to watch
1 June 2013 | by (Doha, Qatar) – See all my reviews

As a professional in the business, I can only cringe in horror as I watch painfully how one individual (in the name of entertainment) can damage, taint, and downright slander the hospitality profession with his profane and crude operating style. No Management would EVER tolerate a chef like Ramsey, no matter how talented he may be. At the end of the day it's about coaching, guidance, mentoring and motivation. Not nervous breakdowns, strain, stress, aggression and vitriol. Sure these places have problems, but the solutions do not lie in a 7 day fix. Clean Kitchens and stores require training, education of hygiene practices, process analysis and much more. For those poor people who were considering working in the kitchen or in the restaurant business, this is reality TV, plumped up with assumption, false premise and downright misrepresentation. Don't let this abomination of a show put you off. The reality in this case is different.
