I refuse to believe something that awesomely horrifying actually exists.

FlyingBacon: After watching Kitchen Nightmare for a long time and I will say this, Gordon Ramsay will always say your food taste like craps. PERIOD! Not sure why people dont get it in their farked up head.


There was one US episode and one BBC episode that he loved the food, but the service and marketing were terrible.  I watched both a few years ago, and at the time they were doing well.  I think it was a Carribian style place in the BBC show.  The Fox version with good food was somewhere near the great lakes, but I forget where.

To be honest, most restaurants that are on their last leg do serve crap.  They pretty much only take places that are on the verge of bankruptcy as I understand it, and places with great food typically aren't a few hundred thousand in the negative asking a reality show for help.  There are reasons that most of the places that are featured have similar sets of problems.

The owners can't tell they're serving crap, and/or they run a dirty place and/or have terrible employees.  Sometimes all of the above.

Not Amy is being eaten alive on FB. I am sure fark would converse with her in a dignified, respectful manner.

This is the part that still makes me wonder.

That's possibly the most important part of this whole thing! How has noone tracked this down yet?

Not really the problem, they were truly crazy.  As in the guy with the pizza was actually locked up later for stabbing his boss.

But thanks for judging me on the basis of the crazies that I have met.  I am sure saying stuff like that online makes you feel better, and that is what it is all about.

I had a feeling she was from the way she snots online about having champagne & caviar whenever she wants, as well as her not shutting the fark up talking about God as if she has His number on speed-dial. B*tch is a walking cartoon caricature of she-publican. Surprised she hasn't tried to run for office herself, unless her felony conviction prevents that.

If she thinks her political pull means that she's gonna sic Sheriff Joe up against all the Internets, then this is gonna get quite the funny. /b/ is gonna eat her alive.

Oh, this will end well...

As a former Maricopa resident, folks LOVE their crazies out there. The problem is, that while they love them, I'm fair certain that being a crazy white lady, she's already attracted the attention of the Sheriff's Department, and I suspect that Joe is going to want his pound of flesh to get her an endorsement and some extra protection--and publicity. Especially the publicity. And I'm not sure that space-time can curve enough with two egos that large in the same vicinity. Something is going to snap, and when it does, it will be epic in scale...

The server, when asked if they were made in house, mumbled "I don't know..." She looked scared to me. As a server, I'd see the pastry chef cleaning up after the morning's baking when I came in to start lunch. Plus, one ticket at a time? An hour for an undercooked pizza? Fully loaded pastry display? Duplicitous, evil owners? I don't buy it. The honest owners I know would say "fine desserts fresh from Local Bakery X" with zero repercussions.

Hot, which is the exact opposite of typical Amy cuisine.


No!  You're missing the glory of this moment.  Cat lady does ALL the cooking.  Solo.  And she can't keep up when there are only 4 tables full in her joint.

Imagine the level and quality of psycho drama that will be in that kitchen with a full house!  Customers waiting 2 hours for a salad.  Cat lady getting farther and farther in the weeds.  Cutting corners (more).  Food getting worse and worse as the evening goes on...

I'm sorry, but I'd pay for a crappy meal just to watch that live.  I would.

Based on the size of their kitchen, selection of deserts, number of staff, and Amy's skill at anything else culinary, I'm going to say that's largely outside the realm of probability.

You know, if this PR firm has half a brain (which is debatable since they decided to take on ABC as a client), they'll do the smart thing and hire a team of skilled line chefs and keep Amy's crazy ass out of the kitchen.  It will be interesting to see just how short of a leash they can manage to keep Samy and Amy on.

They admitted on Kitchen Nightmares that they keep the waiters' tips. Are they trying to backpedal or are they going with the, "They made us say that for the show!" angle?


Someone hacked the show

Never gonna happen. At the beginning of the episode, Samy said that he has never found anyone that he thinks is reliable, which I think is BS because everyone can see that the real reason no chefs are hired is because Amy forbids it.

As far as she's concerned, this joint is nothing but her personal big-girl version of an EZ-Bake Oven, and while she's playing Super-Chef, anyone who doesn't love her food is a hater who's in rebellion against God.

All most every photo of the cakes and pastries posted on their FB page have been tracked down to other sources, even though Amy claims they are her work.

She even posted several Easter-themed flower arrangements created by a well-known artist, and insisted they were cakes she had made -- not flowers. (They were flowers).

There is positively 0% chance those are made in-house. It is flat-out unpossible.

Watch the videos. They ADMIT the pastries are 'ressled', i.e. repackaged and resold as their own, a practice that sounds downright fraudulent to me.

But, my point was, Ramsay did like them, that makes it worthwhile tracking down the actual people that made them.

davidphogan: BarkingUnicorn: I've watched several episodes of Kitchen Nightmares over the past few days and they're all pretty formulaic:

Owners are always crazy assholes.
Kitchen staff may be good guys or bad  guys.
Servers are always good people.

Some episodes break the mold where the owners are great, but the cooks and waitstaff suck but the owners are too nice to fire anyone.


They probably save those places for shows like "Restaurant Stakeout".

I was going to ask Not Amy who to write the check to for the cyber-bullying charity started by 9/11 survivors.  She's twisted herself into pretzels to not name the charity so I figured I'd ask if it would be easier to write it out to her and her  eunuch husband. Damn, Simpsons Barbie blocked me from posting on her page, and all I did was (as nicely as I could) suggest she come here and defend herself.  I guess she sensed a trap - scared of fark.

Anyone seen the 80s movie "Big Business"?  She's the upper crust twin to white trash Jennifer Petkov.  And she just cannot keep her Mr Limpet-looking mouth shut.  I am loving seeing this insane biatch being poked by a stick, and her continual gnashing at that stick.

Since I am blocked, and my passive-aggressive tactic has been stymied, please, poke her for me.  Go to the "I support Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro 100 percent" FB page.  I want to see this biatch implode.

Yeah, I have a life, but I have worked my ass off as a server for many hours of my life and this foray of watching their meltdown amuses me and is little sweat off my back.  I want to see her and her loudmouthed puss husband go down on behalf of those employees they abused.
 
2013-05-17 12:08:53 AM  
What they need to do is hire a manager, a cook and some wait staff and stand back and not touch anything!  They are getting a ton of exposure and will be getting lots of foot traffic from this, if they can keep their farked up craziness out of ABC they have a real shot at making money from this.

That was bitter and nasty. As a chef, I have to say, I like it. FOH and Back of House have to stick together, especially against crazy ass owners. Too damn many out there. I did my stint in Phoenix, in the Biltmore area, as well as in Peoria, before I hooked up with Glendale Arena and the Coyotes. This is an area that is rife with scumbags who absolutely are miserable SOBs to work for, and the labor laws in AZ are a joke. Don't get me wrong, Mass has more than a few asshats, but Maricopa has a special breed who are used to folks falling over themselves to be doormats, and with labor as cheap as it is, because so many folks employ illegal labor, there is always a ready supply of idiots to keep rolling through the door to take up a spot on the floor or behind the line...

In regards to the pastries, the entirety of the kitchen wasn't shown, but there certainly didn't look to be anywhere near the amount of kitchen baking equipment to turn out that display of baked goods -- on top of being a regular restraunt kitchen.

RoboZombie: Does anyone know how your restaurant gets on that show? Why would any restaurant owner WILLINGLY go on a show called "Kitchen Nightmares"?? How do they think it will help them?


In this case the restaurant owners requested that Gordon Ramsay would feature them on his show. They, especially crazy-ass Amy, thought that Gordon would take one look at their business and fully validate what they were doing and would basically quash any further negative reviews from sites like Yelp. They're that delusional.

Restaurants commonly buy desserts from dedicated bakery kitchens.  Most of the time, the restaurant has business cards of the bakeries on display as well.  But sometimes, in the dark reaches of the gnome wilderness, you will find a restaurant that refuses to admit they bought the desserts and resell them.  Or they will admit it, then deny it, then admit it again, then deny it again.  Or they might have been hacked.  It's always hard to tell with gnomes.

The original "ressling" (reselling) quote came from the real (sorry, "hacked") Facebook meltdown, not from Twitter.  There have been fake Twitter posts parodying the original meltdown post.

In that fairly small kitchen, with no appropriate baking equipment in sight, and Amy clearly lacking any real cooking skills, the possibility that she's turning out those baked goods from that kitchen is absolutely zero.

sheep snorter: Oh I forgot that the restaurant is violating Arizona law by the owners stealing the wait staffs tips.

/tips are for wait staff only and can not be taken by management or owners no matter what the wages.


dunno whether it was law or not, but the few places i've worked, tips were collected, and before anyone got sent home, the wait staff member with no tables started counting money, and figuring out what went to the dishwasher and backwaiter, then started using advanced calculus to figure out how much each of them got based on hours.  also, one was a local place that did shift changes in the tip jar...  someone who came in at 8pm didn't get tipped by the table that left at 7...

tl;dr

to sum up: don't leave without your tips, these folks are shadier than the pacific northwest, (if they want a new one, gordon ramsay will chew it), and from a consumer standpoint?  if you've seen it on NATIONAL television, skip it.  if you're traveling, find a copy of the local free paper, and get your dining guide from them.

2) She doesn't have the kitchen equipment to be able to make them.

3) She can't even bake a farking pizza.

namegoeshere: YouSirAreAMaroon: He said the dessert was good. Of course, the real pastry chef remains unknown.

This is the part that still makes me wonder. All the /b/ and facebook and twitter and folks that have looked over this trainwreck, and not one has figured out who makes the pastries that Gordon actually said were good? That's possibly the most important part of this whole thing! How has noone tracked this down yet?

4) She can only handle making pizzas one at a time. Even one at a time they're not cooked correctly. That is an incredible amount of complex baked goods. There is no way on earth, even if she never, ever slept, that she could be producing that.

lack of warmth: NaziKamikaze: You sound like a doormat. I hope that pisses you off enough that you hit the gym or something so people don't look at you and immediately think easy target.

Not really the problem, they were truly crazy.  As in the guy with the pizza was actually locked up later for stabbing his boss.

But thanks for judging me on the basis of the crazies that I have met.  I am sure saying stuff like that online makes you feel better, and that is what it is all about.


One of the best online responses I have ever read.

Crazy magnet here, too.  The fact that you are not incarcerated for overreacting to the situations speaks loads to your character, even dealing with BrofistRapington there.  Best to ya.

TV's Vinnie: nikku88: I'm sure the reviews will be good. Yelp has been deleting almost every review there.

Why is Yelp enabling this delusional coont?


Because they're probably paying them to.
