Ramsay Returns

Heee's Baaack! Famed British chef Gordon Ramsay returned to American televisions last night in Hell's Kitchen. Once again, 16 unsuspecting "chefs" will lock horns with the infamous Ramsay. I love this show, but am continually confused by just a few things: 1. Haven't any of the contestants ever watched the show before? Don't they know they should have a really great "signature dish" that they could prepare to perfection in their sleep? and 2. Why would anyone with half a brain go on that show without being able to make risotto? (My family would be eating risotto every day for months before the show so I'd be sure I could make it right and not get yelled at!)

If you've seen Gordon on some of his other shows, you know he can be a bit harsh, but he's not always that way! One of my favorite Gordon Ramsay shows is The F Word which is aired on BBC America.

WARNING: Gordon holds back no offensive language in his show and it is NOT edited out - don't watch it if you're easily offended by such language (although he is fairly restrained in these clips).

While you're at it, let Gordon teach you to make a great Beef Wellington (no bad language here):

We're so glad you're back, Gordon!

I'm so glad it's back! I was wondering the same thing, how could you even think about trying out for this show without having a signature dish? WTH?

I am so not a "reality" show kind of gal ...
But I totally get a kick out of this show -
There's just something about it :-)
By the way, what was up with the chef who isn't really a chef, and just teaches cooking classes for $300/hour?

I love "The F Word". He's so funny with his kids!
