""He was absolutely lovely to work with - very respectful, very eager to see what we were all about and what Maine was all about," Kelly told the Press Herald. "Very talented, very smart. Fun. Lots of energy - a ball of energy. I got the same feeling from him that I got from Tony Bourdain. He's a real passionate person, just exuding culinary information and an insatiable desire to learn anything food related."

I'm still not watching it.

"While on a lobster fishing expedition with lobsterwomen Heather Thompson and Hilary Oliver, Thompson told Ramsay that her 15-year-old daughter was quicker at baiting and releasing the traps, according to the Portland newspaper."

this somehow, and I tbh don't quite know, but it feels like: are we still not doing phrasing?

Anthony knew his limitations which is why he became a writer, Ramsey is just a talented ass

It is fun to watch networks desperately try to fill the void left by Bourdain. They miss the mark on most of the resume: professional chef, the writer's ability to observe and reflect, a big heart, and zero farks to give. Ramsay is great, but he could row across the channel in one of Tony's shoes.

Anthony Bourdain's Maine episode was probably his worst**.  He visited a bunch of dumpy restaurants (I think his cameraman was the "fixer" since he was from Maine) and trashed the only half-decent one he visited in Portland.  He even personally insulted the owner of the restaurant, on camera.  He missed pretty much every funky and great place in one of the best restaurant cities in the country.

A couple years later, he and Eric Ripert did a speaking tour and they came back to Portland.  Bourdain started by sheepishly apologizing for his last visit.

**Perhaps tied with the Rio one that was about his wife's MMA fight.  Though he did redeem that episode with a quote about caipirinhas that goes something like this.  "you take the first sip, and you're like 'I don't know'.  The second sip and it's 'hmmm ok'  and the third sip and you're thinking 'where are my pants'"

The camera guy was the fixer for that episode. They ended up at his family's cabin out in the woods. I've been past Primo a few times and never really wanted to stop by because the place is expensive. It is more geared to the tourists. From the list of place, they kept to the coast.

I do wish one of these traveling food shows up here would go off the beaten path and go to a place like Vittles in Pittsfield. Small menu, not too pricey and good food. It is Ramsay's alley of "rustic, simple"

I am glad they skipped the insufferable Lost Kitchen.

There's a bit too much "Well they're artists you know..." shiat that goes on, frankly.  The whole perception that if you're really good at something, you're allowed to be a complete screaming shiatgibbon, I really don't get it - I'll respect talent when it's there, whether I like someone or not particularly, but I am not gonna put up with them acting like a farking 4 year old if there's any choice at all.  And in most cases with artists, there's certainly a choice.  We need more people that'll say, "Your art's great Salim, no shiat you're awesome there - but the thing is you're a farking dick, and no one wants to deal with that including me/us.  Sorry man but unless you at least make an effort, I/we are done with you."

I mean, non-baby-punching was always an option?

Ramsey has been doing this across the globe for some time now. He introduces himself to the locals, gets a local chef to teach him what the local cuisine is, then he learns from the locals and finishes by cooking local specialties for local dignitaries.  It has nothing to do with Bourdain.  I miss Bourdain too, but let it go.
