My Favorite Food TV~

Gordon Ramsay

Who am I kidding? I like the biggest jerk of all, but at least he’s not passive aggressive about it. ;P

I don’t know why I like Gordom Ramsay. Maybe it’s because he screams his lungs out and that’s the way a real commercial kitchen is for me. It’s stressful, mistakes cost money, tempers are ablaze. From Hell’s Kitchen to Kitchen Nightmares, The F Word, and Gordon Ramsay’s Cookalong. I love them all.

He’s brutally entertaining and has a wicked sense of humor (when he’s flirting with his celebrity guests), doesn’t muse over the fine qualities of cooking because cooking is business, and thinks everyone can cook (for themselves)!

Also, someone should already make a damn rap album titled “Ramsay’s Rap Cookalong” or something, sampling all the golden nugget swearwords he’s dropped on TV. “Lamb Sauce” and “F*cking Donkey” should get their own tracks.

Your turn~ What other Food TV do you watch?

    Wth, you stole my idea!

    Nigella foreverrrrrrrrrr that woman is just so HOT!

    We have some really great Swedish tv-chefs: Tina Nordstöm and Leila Lindholm. Those are my two favorites.

      @Julyssa, I so didn’t. You said you were writing an ode to Nigella, and I was already writing my post then.

        “But Nigella cooks like most of us. She’s not glamorous and often tells us that she’s lazy”

        My friend, I beg to disagree with the first part of your statement. If this woman is not the embodiment of glamour and sensuality I don’t know who is. I wish I looked a tenth like her when cooking.

        I am a total Nigella FANATIC. So I’m glad to see her featured here ;)

          @Echydo, yeah. I know, but she doesn’t spend 6hrs cooking pork telling us that’s the way to do pork, instead she’ll probably pick up a pack of pancetta and do it in a way that she’ll tell us “it’s just as good as cooking pork for six hours in the oven.” xD

  2. oh gosh. all the food shows. I finished the first season of Around the World in 80 Plates recently and I liked that they had to try and make local cuisine with locals judging the results.
