How is it fail? I'm guessing the prisoner got a decent job as a line cook at one of Gordon's restaurants and Gordon gets to feel good about helping this guy out... win-win.

Did he hire the guy?

According to this, he did hire the guy, who spent his time in prison studying for his Food NVQ.

Ugh, didn't meant to prematurely post. But I was going to state that in today's market, that's about 53 bucks a day. Not the best wages, but he's a line cook. I'm pretty damn sure he worked his way up from there.

I think Ramsay won him over when he said "not a week, a day." Plus he works for (and was personally picked by) Gordon Farkin' Ramsay, that's a great addition to any resume.

And I'm pretty sure that Ramsay just pulled that out of his ass on the spot and is actually paying him quite well

Yeah, the prisoner probably gets "35 quid" a week working the kitchen, so Gordon simply said "no, a day" as in, you'd be making a decent wage, not prison wages,

I wish most Americans' perception of Ramsey wasn't from the American versions of his tv shows.

He actually does seem to be a pretty good bloke who's truly passionate about food while not being a food snob. I enjoyed the bits of his first show The F Word, where he spent time talking up traditional British dishes that were dying out (like Mutton and so on) and had his kids raise turkeys and sheep and then had them slaughtered and later ate them so they'd know where their food comes from.

And I've seen him hire people on the spot like that before. There was an ep of the British "Kitchen Nightmares", where there was a really good chef in a restaurant in Paris with an idiot owner who wouldn't listen to him. So he hired the girl in one of his restaurants in Britain so her skills wouldn't be wasted.

PIP_the_TROLL: I wish most Americans' perception of Ramsey wasn't from the American versions of his tv shows.


Anyone who's actually paid attention to him knows he's a good guy. The reason he screams at chefs on Hell's Kitchen is because they should already be professionals, so farking up is inexcusable.

The Master Chef show has him being much kinder, and the only times he freaks out are when it's a serious health/safety issue.

In Kitchen Nightmares he tries really hard to get them to understand why they're farking up, and only gets angry when they lie to him or flat-out ignore his suggestions.

Not all the contestants on that show are professional chefs.  The reason he screams at them is because viewers get a kick out him screaming at people.  That means higher ratings.  Heck, on that show he even screams at the customers.

Personally I think he's vastly overrated.

"What is that?"

"And it's served on a bed of raw flour, right? ... ."

He's hired chefs from Hell's Kitchen, and in one case sent a chef off with a scholarship to culinary school.

And on Masterchef USA, he offered at least a few people a job in one of his restaurants.

WTF?

where in the world do you need to cut that many damn onions that its an entire days worth of work?

Don't think it was the whole cutting onions. I think it was the the technique at which he cut the onion. Like anyone that's a master of their craft, if you see someone that has natural honest to god talent you try not to let them go into a useless retail salesclerk job. He saw this dude in prison had some damn good skill, checked his knife work and speed. If you've ever watched Gordon's shows he's always biatching to people about uniformity in the food. One plate need to look exactly like the other plate when you serve it. So he watched this dude chop that onion and was impressed. Kinda like in those old kickass kung-fu movies when the samurai takes a loud mouthed teenager under his wing to teach him swordsmanship.

Actually that's prob a bad analogy, but you get the drift.

True, but the prize is an executive chef position.  To even apply to be on the show is to assert that you are capable of it.

I think I saw that one.  An older black woman who he said had incredible natural talent, but needed more formal training.  I don't think he wanted to kick her off the show, but she was in over her head going up against a bunch of fresh out of culinary academy punks.

My thoughts exactly. On masterchef, though, he's acccompanied by the douchiest skinny bald chef I've ever seen. I don't even think the dude likes food.

"Never trust a skinny cook."  My Granny used to tell me that.  I took it literally for the longest time.

He never seems to like anything at all. Even when he gives a good review, it's just a re-stating of what Ramsay said.
