Présentation de l'éditeur

Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, stubborn as hell. But this is his real story…

This is Gordon Ramsay’s autobiography – the first time he has told the full story of how he became the world’s most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brother’s heroin addiction and his failed first career as a footballer: all of these things have made him the celebrated culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today. Gordon talks frankly about:

• his tough childhood: his father’s alcoholism and violence and the effects on his relationships with his mother and siblings

• his first career as a footballer: how the whole family moved to Scotland when he was signed by Glasgow Rangers at the age of fifteen, and how he coped when his career was over due to injury just three years later

• his brother’s heroin addiction.

• Gordon’s early career: learning his trade in Paris and London; how his career developed from there: his time in Paris under Albert Roux and his seven Michelin-starred restaurants.

• kitchen life: Gordon spills the beans about life behind the kitchen door, and how a restaurant kitchen is run in Anthony Bourdain-style.

• and how he copes with the impact of fame on himself and his family: his television career, the rapacious tabloids, and his own drive for success.

Back Cover copy

"When I think about myself, I still see a little boy who is
desperate to escape, and desperate to please. The fact that I've long since
escaped, and long since been pleasing people, has little or no impact. I
just keep going, moving as far away from where I began as possible."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Humble commentary 17 août 2010
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In a way, it's like some sort of a new TV show for him! After Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsay offers us a very well-written autobiography, which is full of information but stays quite easy to read. You can hear him speaking whereas you're still reading a book. You can easily forget that thanks to his natural all new talent, as it seems to be: writting. Have fun, you should read it! It's f*****g good, he would say!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SIncère et sans compromis 27 février 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Permet de mieux comprendre l'itinéraire de ce chef qui nous passionne dans ses émissions culinaires.
Ecrit dans un style fluide, je l'ai lu d'une traite. Un seul bémol, les nombreuses références à des chefs anglais qui ne sont pas forcément connus en France.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Honest voice 13 décembre 2006
Par Antonio P. Manahan - Publié sur
This is quite a pageturner. My wife and I rarely finish the same book within the same day. We live an era of ghost written celebrity biographies written with boring pedantic voices. I have no illusions that Ramsay wrote this book without assistance (whether an editor or overzealous assistant)but the book certainly captures his voice. The result is an honest unapologetic narrative of the life of a remarkable man. There are lessons to be learned, hard work as the solution for overcoming adversity. Readers of food porn may be dissapointed in that the book is less about the food than the man behind the food. Fans of Ramsay will be delighted because of the insight into the method behind his madness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New intensity............... 5 février 2007
Par Patricia Carter - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Imagine if every person on earth put the same level of passion, intensity and energy into their jobs as Gordon does to his. Imagine a world where half-a%# workmanship and pathetic laziness was unaccepptable, as it is in Ramsay's kitchens. Just imagine.......

An amazing book was this. I wished it could have gone on and on. The real story behind a driven man whose ethics of perfection can be easily applied to every work situation in the world, regardless of occupation. Challenge yourself to accept Ramsay's standards of excellence. If being the best was easy, everyone would be great. This book shows why Gordon Ramsay is the very best chef in the world.....

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Gordon needs a hug.. 30 décembre 2006
Par R. McCarthy - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I've been a massive Gordon Ramsay fan since the first time I glimpsed him on BBC America, then came Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares to feed my obsession. I purchased two of his cookbooks for my friend for Christmas and as we were exchanging gifts it turned out that she had done the same. Secretly I purchased Roasting in Hell's Kitchen all for myself and read it cover to cover the day after Christmas.

Having just finished watching the first run of the F-Word on BBC America (because everything comes over here a year late at least from the BBC) I was expecting lots of dish on his television ventures and his rise to culinary stardom. This book completely surprised and enthralled me. If there was a ghost writer for this book I'd be gobsmacked, as the writing style is completely in keeping with the way Gordon talks about things in his cook books and on his television shows, no holds are barred and no f-word gets left behind. It is a rare auto-biography that is penned so true to it's author's voice and raw with authenticity.

I had no idea that this brash, confident, gorgeous man in the kitchen who is so engaging and fun has had so much to overcome and in such a short amount of time. One might think that reading 300 pages of heartbreak, abuse and grueling work (nothing short of a Dickensian tale) would change the way I look at a person, and truthfully it has. I'm even more impressed and amazed by Gordon Ramsay now than ever.

His story is one that took immense amounts of bravery and bullocks to tell, and he has done so in a way that is astoundingly heartfelt and never hopeless. Gordon's incredibly recent bout with success is well deserved and I hope it lasts long enough to provide material for additional updates on his fascinating life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Same as "Humble Pie" 18 janvier 2008
Par T. Jones - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is a fascinating insight into the man, the chef, the legend-in-the-making; it is an easy read and very entertaining but buyers and fans need to know it is the SAME book as a previously released autobiography of Ramsay's entitled "Humble Pie". The same book, just repackaged and glossed up on the outside for his new American audience. Great book - but you don't need to buy it twice!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A look in the life of Ramsay 23 juillet 2007
Par Eric Campbell - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'll keep this brief, but if you're a fan of Gordon Ramsay anyway, you really should get this book. It's a much closer look into the life of a great chef following his struggles and triumphs through life.

I feel those that have only seen Hell's Kitchen are missing a different side to Ramsay. My other favorite show of his, Kitchen Nightmares, shows a much more caring side - still absolutely driven and brutally honest, but very caring. He truly wants to see these owners do well.

All I can say is grab the book if you want a closer look into the man, rather than his recipes.
