    Actually there was a frog legs order in there as well though he didn't call that on the reorder (the Blue team must have picked up on it cause they made it). And that is a lot for one person to do which was why I said earlier that I thought Ralph should've been helping her out (maybe he did but if so they didn't show it). Notice how Ramsay told both Ralph and Mary Ellen to taste the risottos that came back -- Ramsay was clearly looking to Ralph to keep the Blue kitchen in order.

    i just have a few words to say.... WORST CHEF EVER@!@

    I would love to be a chef some day, but I know that I'd never ever treat my staff in the manner in which the "CHEF NAZI" acts and interacts with his staff.

    *That is All*

    [QUOTE=Texicana]Britannia, you just got me thinking Toad in Hole, so-rare-it's-still-blue rib roasts/yorkshire pudding....Nigella Lawson's books are my food porn!QUOTE]
    Texicana, my husband loves my Toad in the Holes and for some reason, my mother could never make Yorkshire Puds..they always came out like flattish flying saucers, but mine rise and rise and come out very light and puffy. Pour some gravy in, a bit of horseradish sauce, and Bob's your uncle!

    Oh, don't mind me...topic, Gordon Ramsay's fits of rage. Discuss:


    I think it's all just blustering, in order to get people to fear him and LEARN.

    I think it's also that he's a "creative" type dahlink! His reputation as a chef who produces good food is on the line. A lot of people expect the whole experience when they go to one of Ramsey's restaurants...even the temper tantrums..lol
    When you're creating something, whether it be a gourmet meal, the year's figures for your manager, organising an event, your reputation is on the line if someone you hire doesn't do what you need them to do to make it as excellent as you want and expect it to be. I hate organising stuff and delegating to someone whose idea of excellence makes the whole caboodle look shoddy and ill prepared.

    In defense of British cooking, there is good and bad and covered in heavy creame (a la the Two Fat Ladies...who single handedly set English Cuisine back three decades...) It once was an international joke but is not any more....

    On the other hand...Gordon's menu is not just limited...its uninspired.....not having eaten it I can't comment on the quality of cooking just the lack of imagination in choosing the dishes....I would be curious to see what the New York Times has to say about his places when they open in NY....

    I do agree the menu is cliche. I'd imagine his flagship restaurants (i.e., those not set up for a reality show) are much more varied and inspired.

Also gamesmanship is part of the contestant elimination process by design -- otherwise Ramsay would just pick who he hated most/liked least every episode. Notice how in the first episode Ramsay repeatedly said to Jimmy and Jeff that they had dodged bullets. He clearly thought they were weaker or at least equally as weak as Elise's choices of Dewberry and Carolann but he picked Elise to make those choices so that's who he had to decide between.
    I wasn't specifically replying to anyone's post. I just thought that Jessica really had no choice but to pick Andrew and Mary Ellen. If she had tried to protect Mary Ellen by choosing Ralph I am sure that Ramsay would have seen through that and it would have made Jessica a target. I don't think that Ramsay is the type to care about alliances or friendships, but that he would see it as a strike against someone if they tried to choose someone or not choose someone for personal reasons. It would have saved Mary Ellen in the short term, but it would have made Ramsay suspect Jessica's motives and it would have further weakened the team (think how Ralph would have reacted).
    Of course, if Jessica continues to do well with her cooking, then it may not matter what Ramsay thinks of her motives.
