Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, stubborn as hell.
Now, for the first time, the world's most famous—and infamous—chef tells the inside story of his life: his difficult childhood, his father's alcoholism and violence, his brother's heroin addiction, his short-circuited soccer career, and his fanatical pursuit of gastronomic perfection—everything that helped mold him into the culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today. He also dishes the dirt on the rich and famous, and takes you behind the scenes of some of the great restaurants.
Honest, outrageous, and intensely personal, Roasting in Hell's Kitchen will not only change your perception of Gordon Ramsay but that of the cutthroat world of haute cuisine as well.

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.

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.
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.
