Is Gordon Ramsay just a meme?

He can be. To be fair though, the people on this board shitting on him are absolute cooklets.

>> No.15897594

Overrated. Mediocre or worse as a chef, but the asshole personality (which he pretends to be just a shtick, playing a nice guy in all the behind-the-scenes documents while being a fucking jerk both in "main spotlight" shows and off-camera) made him popular on 4chan.

He was great to watch on Kitchen Nightmares UK, other than that just a master of influence/marketing who happens to know how to cook.

I'd love to see a series where he has to run a small kitchen that is busy in the summer, COMPLETELY dies during the winter, and must remain open to prop up the bar's liquor license. Would he still hate the freezer/microwave? Can he make a tomato that ISN'T in season palatable, and does he have a plan for it when it's about to go bad? What does he do when he gets an order for 4 burgers, all cooked different temps, but only has 3 burgers prepared because he hasnt sold a burger in weeks?

Mostly, I just wanna see what he would do when he gets buried in tiny problems, and how he'd work around them when he doesn't have a team of people helping or to cathartically yell at when shit hits the fan.

>> No.15897984

At this point it's like he is just pissing on the sand castle he built all his life.
His "career" wasn't much to begin with but to just make a mockery of yourself and to become an absolute disgrace even for your shabby "empire" you built is beyond my recollection

I watched the documentary Boiling Point and now have a tremendous amount of respect for Gordon Ramsay. He worked his ass off for his michelin stars and not only did he work hard but also smart.

Chefs that won't use microwaves in the 21st century do not know how to cook, period. It's not rocket science, it had its place like everything else, and it improves some textures while saving time.

GR does big burgers but there's a balance at some point. He's not making 4 patties heart clogger burgers. There's enough of that in Vegas. His mix and grind of beef is also high end and costs more than that cheap ass american burger he's making fun of.

Here's a tip I learned on the griddle:
when you've still got the sammy open-faced and want to melt the cheese, sprinkle about a tsp of water in a circle about an inch away from the edge of the sandwich. The water will steam up and help melt the cheese, and will also temporarily cool down the grill surface near the bread. That way, the cheese will melt without the bread or butter starting to burn (this is probably why Ramsey took his GC off before it melted, as that was a very hot fire)

We kept a clear squeeze condiment bottle just for this purpose. I tried cooking cubans and ham melts without the water trick, and while it was still doable, if you wanted a perfect golden-brown bread with gooey cheese, the water/steam trick was preferred.

I know he did, I'm just wondering what a show like that would be like. In Kitchen Nightmares he does shit like making sure mold is scraped out of a fridge or trimming bloated menus, but I wanna see him work a kitchen as described in my post.

Small-medium and/or seasonal kitchens have different challenges than the ones he tends to command, and I would love to see how he prioritizes and organizes one for a year or two. It would get other people out of the way and it'd give you a clear view of his expertise on a gamut of topics he doesn't really go into with full detail i.e. waste, cost, storage, payroll, suppliers/distributors, what he does when he has time to lean and nothing left to clean, etc.
