Juan,
It's sometimes hard to read objectively. There is nothing personal here. I accept your appology and we'll move on.

Free rider,
Yeah man. I know what I said. For what it's worth, I'll refrain from using "offensive" language in English and Spainish. And also, Freerider, you are not my mama, so how about no more "spankings".

Yes, Jaun is the English "John", but I prefer Jaun. Are you asking that I call myself "John" so all the Americanos know how to pronounce my name? Here is the phonetic version: WAN. Got it?

Andrew.
The problem I have is they don't show enough of the food. You get a hint of what they are serving before TopoGigio starts going off:lol:

Lets face it people, its all fake, all on script...the show is too dramatic and over the edge to be for real. Like when he blew off those blondies that went up to talk with him, anyone whose got some insight into customer service to make it as far as he has would not have said what he told those girls. But if this is all for real then a 3 head doctors won't be enough to fix this loonie :roll:

Panini,
I know they don't show enough of the food, and the Ramsey is a total a**, its mindless entertainment for me. Of course, I like old reruns of "Leave it to Beaver" also, so my tv palate is kind of strange.

If you want to be called Juan, you should spell it correctly. Spanish, unlike English, is spelled phonetically (and according to the Spanish alphabet). That means that writing your name Jaun produces the name "Hah-oon" in Spanish and "Jon" in English.

Btw, I am fluent in more languages than just English and Spanish, so please refrain from offensive language in other languages as well. So far, you have proven yourself to be very "gutter", what with your language and your girlfriend with rats in her bed. My advice to you is to clean up if you ever want out of the gutter.

That's my problem with the show... not enough of the food and no focus on the challenge, just drama. That's why I preferred the PBS "Cooking Under Fire", which ran concurrently. I hope they do that one again.

I think the show starts June 12? not sure, but with all this hoopla I'm going to have to watch so I can post to support my first post.
Lets rewmember, we are in the late night forum so we should not personalize comments unless about Gordi:talk:
Now that the cable is installed in the kitchen for football,I'm going to tape hells kitchen, play it back, translating and show so the crew can see just how nice they have it.:D
My pastry Chef Juan recalled a time 18 yurs ago when he first started with me, he put salt in a filling intead of sugar and I forced him to eat a large portion of the product.
I don't recall!!!! could I have been like that??????

Lol I actually liked this show. I'm more of a fan of Ramsey on his BBC shows, but I don't think he's as bad as he comes off. I mean, if you can't stand the heat, right?

I do think he is an amazing chef, and I do think that you may have to be that maniacal sometimes to maintain your standards. And I also think he plays it up for the cameras a bit.

I'm looking forward to it.

And hey, the best thing that show did was make the kitchen/restaurant work look, at the least, like hard work. So if a few more people have a newfound respect for what goes on in the BoH, I'm all for it.

And yeah, he's a bastard. But a lot of people less talented than him are bastards (and yes, I know that a lot of people as talented or moreso are NOT bastards, but still).

Think about it good people. He is/was a footballer, a game built on confrontation, aggression. And such like. I have a friend who worked for him, enjoyed his kitchen, and his manner, well indeed. And certainly his cooking. I would love to see him put on on an All Black jersey, and see how he gets on with our fellows.

Just as a side note, NZ footy and American footy is sort of the same, except we can't afford all the helmets and general clobber. But they do the same sort of stuff. Soccer (sp) is generally considered a girls game here. :crazy:

Is H*ll's Kitchen on tonight, Monday? What channel and can I catch it after midnight? I have to close tonight and I won't get home until about 11:00 pm. Anybody know?
post #46 of 112
Enough already Jaun.:rolleyes: Fine you don't like what is being said, then just end it, rise above it. You keep coming back with these sarcastic comments which will keep this going back and forth. You say you're a valuable man in the kitchen, so talk about that. Let's go back to your first few posts where you talked about food, and end this right here. We can all get along believe it or not.

Yes I watched it:o makes me think though that perhaps Ramsey isn't the one that's so bad. Look at the morons that they pick to be in the kitchen! Makes you wonder what the point is. I worked in a lot of kitchens before I went to school, during school I worked in a lot of kitchens with Chef Ramseys and non Chef Ramseys. After school I did the same. Even with all my experiences it was very difficult to not have years of 3 star experience under my belt to feel confident enough to be able to handle a kitchen like this, and they're tossing stockbrokers and "salad chefs" out there. Pan is right in that it seems like they're trying to say that any monkey under the tutelage of a ball buster in just a few short weeks can also own and run a 3 star restaurant. Does kind of make a mockery of our training and hard work doesn't it. But then again, it is TV and the masses are asses, so I guess in the end we do it for the love and those that can and do appreciate it.
Still I wonder if anyone of us had to run a service with these numbnuts if we wouldn't turn into a Ramsey ourself?! :crazy:

I think that you may have answered your own question with your question.

It is obvious that the Fox powers that be, hand selected only people that were fringe food service workers. People that they knew would ignite Ramsey with their cooking skill short comings. Another noticable thread that runs through all of the contestants is their irreverent attitudes of cockiness that they all seem to have. Making statements to the effect that if "Ramsey gives me any crap, I'll return it back to Him." I respect Ramsey for his talent. His people skills are a little lacking, but then again that is why we watch.

Just one other thing, I found it eerie that I have in the past worked as a Prison cook, a caterer, a deli manager, and I am presently building a personal chef business.
post #51 of 112
Its premiere was tonight at 8 pm on fox. I was at work also so I missed out. One of my cooks called me to brag that he was going to watch it. Hmmmm, maybe I will try a couple of Ramseys techniques on him when he comes in tomorrow.

Well all, I finally saw the show last night. This is my third try to post this! The site keeps on kicking me out. How do they pick the final twelve? Anyone curious besides me? I know there is more talent out there. Do they pick the worst of the worst? My fiance could out cook all of them, even Ramsey, hands down. She is like a four star chef. The funny thing is that she has no culinary training. She can season a dish without measuring anything. It always comes out perfect. She can create an appetizer, main course and dessert in 30 minutes or less. I wish all of your could come over for dinner. You'd be amazed. Oops, don't mean to brag. Anyway, I KNOW Chrose, Pan, Rook, all of you would NEVER let a kitchen be shut down two nights in a row. Ramsey needs to get into the thick of things and help out. Rook knows that in the Army you lead by example. You accomplish the mission no matter what. Also, a leader knows his team. Ramsey was looking at their profiles when the show started. He chose them. Maybe he was looking for the worst of the worst eh? What do you say Rook, send him to leadership school? At least Ramsey entered the kitchen to give first aid to Heather. Heather was a real trooper. Still trying to run her stations even though she was getting treated for her burnt hand. Is it just me or would you have given the women's team some lamb stock to help them out? I know I would have. The bottom line is the customer. Anything to get the food out to them. I mean the customer is the reason they are in the kitchen in the first place. Anyway, have a great day! I can't wait until next week.

LOL Dale A. you are really a treasure. Such unbridled enthusiam just splotching on the screen. I sure would love to tuck my knees under your table. Hoping the kitchen is in the same room as the dining table.

In a fit of masochistic curiosity I watched the show on Monday. I barely made it to the first commercial break before I had to switch it off. It is so incredibly bad it's beyond words.

Diane,
Thank you for your kind words. As a matter of fact, the kitchen and dining room are one in the same.

So...I'm guessing I didn't miss much. Probably for the better. Just more fuel for the fire. I think the guys that do that MTV show, "Barbershop", need to do a cook's show where it's ull uncut and a camera sits in the kitchen, and out back where everyone goes to smoke and gripe. And than after the place closes, the camera follows the cooks to the bars. May not be riviting TV, but at least it would be real.

Chrose,

Right on, man. I saw this post and it looked like a throw down. I aint tryin' to throw nobody's baby in the fire. Just seems like there is fine line between disagreeing and having an opinion...peppered with a little hot sauce. You guys are so crazy.

Ok all,
Looks like the guys are getting their butts kicked by the women eh? I think women are better cooks anyway. There seems to be more passion when they cook. The women on the red team also are working as a team. Just like it should be. The guys are out for themselves playing the blame game. The guy that got eliminated this time, Jacaimo, deserved it. First of all he lied to the chef. You should never, ever lie to the chef. He knows without a doubt if you're being up front and truthful. Then he didn't turn on the oven. How could this guy be a pizza maker and not know how to turn on an oven? Then the other guy, the one that burned his hand, simply wimped out and gave up. If the burn is bad get medical attention. If it's not, Suck It Up and Drive On. Rook knows what I mean. It seems as though no real passion exists in both those teams. Again, how do they choose these people. The producers should come here to Chef Talk and choose some people. Here is where the passion is. I don't know how many of you would agree to go though. I would. Just to try and give us a good name. I'm not as good as all of you though. But, I have the passion. I am also wondering where chef Ramsey's sous chefs are when the restaurant is open. They should be in there helping out along with chef Ramsey. Good leaders are always in the mix. Anyone seen the movie Alexander? Well, in the movie he is always first in the fight. I wish chef Ramsey would read some of these posts. He would "maybe" learn something. If I were in charge, after closing the kitchen, I would sit all of them down and tell them where they went wrong. Then I would teach them how to fix their mistakes. That's how you get the service better the next time. Well, next Monday looks more intense. Take care all.

Well it's TV, whatta ya gonna do? The fact is that these morons are making Ramsey look he has a good reason to act the way he does. I am starting to think that this show might make people think that it's the cooks that are the idiots and without people like Ramsey in the kitchen then the restaurant industry is doomed! This we all know is not true, but "reality" TV when it only depicts edited reality is the real bane here:mad:
What we really need is a documentary showing how a real kitchen operates under extreme stress and how professional we actually are. It doesn't have to be a series, because lord knows the public wont be interested unless there's asinine drama. Hey Food TV Exec's. why not try running a real show and give us 3 hours to show the public what the **** we've "really" been doing all these years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I'll have a drink and take my pill now..:beer: :o
