Description du produit

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."

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!

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating tale of a fascinating man, told poorly 14 avril 2015
Par Jeff Wignall - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
First of all I am a huge Gordon Ramsay fan. I absolutely love Kitchen Nightmares and I wish he was still making more episodes (I hope he returns to the show at some point). And so, being such a big fan, I really wanted to learn more about life and his background so that I understood the show better. And, in that respect, this book was a big help: when you see the misery that Ramsay grew up with--a father with a wandering eye who fancied himself a rock 'n roller, constant moves to new cities, poverty--you begin to understand why business success means so much to him. When he crashes down on a restaurant owner (particularly a family-owned restaurant), it's not because he's mean or psychotic, it's because he genuinely cares about the people he's trying to counsel and their families. He knows firsthand the misery of a crappy childhood and a failed business and he's trying to help them avoid those things. Moreover, Ramsay is trying to help restaurant owners rediscover their passion for cooking.

All of these things became much more clear to me as I read this book. I have to say, however, that while I'm an American of Brit descent and grew up with Brit parents, jeez, Gordon, lighten up on the Brit talk! I had to look up dozens of words to even know what he was talking about, or at least guess at them based on context. There is a LOT of British slang in this book--a LOT. Also, the writing is pretty lame. I'm a professional writer and Ramsay desperately needed a good professional writer to ghost-write this book for him/with him. The editor for this book was sleeping on the job.

I learned a lot from the book, but I think Ramsay has a much better book inside him. He is unafraid to reveal the truth of his past and he is unafraid to be vulnerable (a great quality) but you have to love him at the start of this book or you'll never finish it. It was a struggle for me. If I were reviewing this book as a meal, I'd say it was interesting for its ingredients and its concept, but lacking in its execution. It does not, however, lack anything in the way of passion.

I've watched Chef Ramsey since he was on BBC doing Kitchen Nightmares. I've always seen him as this meticulous and passionate chef, but never thought how he became this larger-than-life character that we see on our TV's. In this book, no subject is off-limits. He is extraordinarily honest about his less than poor and humble beginnings. He talks about the mental, physical, emotional, and verbal abuse the whole family suffered from an alcoholic father. He was born in Glasgow, however, the family moved over and over because the father could never keep a job. He talks about getting his start in the kitchens in England and in
France. During the book, I found a new respect for Chef Ramsey. He even goes into the heartache of having his younger brother hooked on heroin. I couldn't put this book down.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I have always loved Gordon Ramsey 19 septembre 2016

I have always loved Gordon Ramsey. Even though he has a temper and uses bad language I still admire him. This book really opens up on the reason he is the hard driven man he is today. I respect how he has persevered through many hardships. He has remained a very successful in spite of all he had to endure. One thing for sure he has helped many along the way find their true purpose in preparing high quality food. If you cannot give it your best than leave the kitchen. Also I admire how he has taken his own hard earned money to help others succeed in their restaurants. Very enlightening book on the man Gordon Ramsey.

I read this book immediately on the heels of reading Marco Pierre White's "The Devil in the KItchen" and the two made a magnificent pair. You get the gossip from both sides and although I'm very partial due to my giant GR crush, I appreciated Gordon's book so much more. Why? Because he shows his vulnerability as a human being by digging deep into some very serious personal issues. White's book is definitely more about the food except, of course, when he pauses to trash a former colleague or employee or boast he HE was the first of celebrity chefs, not GR or anyone else for that matter. GR devotees see in him the tenderness that comes from being a battered kid hell-bent on escaping his past through food. Yes, the book is ghost-written but it matters not because I can hear Gordon's own voice in my head (swooooon) as I read. The book captures all of his wit and naughty humor and then some. Whether you are a GR fan, a chef or wannabe or just curious about this "squishy-faced" Scotsman we've come to know/love/hate, there is something for you in this book. A quick read with some great photos at end, I was surprised (and a little wistful) when I so quickly reached the last page.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ramsay was a chef before being a chef was trendy ... 23 mai 2015

Ramsay was a chef before being a chef was trendy. In his book, he chronicles the adversities that have made him into a culinary genius. Through a lot of personal drama (very brief and concise but the flow of the book needs some work) and a ton of hard work, he pulls through. Ramsay is absolutely honest in the whole book, it shows his grittiness in full color. He talks about the underbelly of the cooking world, the massive pressure to cook and above all, cook well. Though the language in the book may a bit too colorful, it gives Ramsay his signature attitude. I wish the book would have included a little bit of footnotes as Gordon talks about a lot of his famous contemporaries, though his descriptions are adequate, it is not nearly enough unless you are a food critic.
