Gordon Ramsay is my favorite.
i just want to hug all of them
Fun story. I cooked for this dude, once. I did my kitchen apprenticeship at the family-style restaurant of one of New Zealand’s premiere chefs, and he knew Ramsay really well. He was in New Zealand for a few weeks, and Martin brought him by the restaurant to check it out. It was right on the beach, fucking gorgeous. I was the only one there (apprentice = bitch work = 4am starting shifts), and they asked me to whip up some breakfast for them. It was SUPER simple, fried fish, eggs cooked in bread, sausages. He was incredibly gracious and kind, asked me to join them (I couldn’t, too much work to do, so they sat at the kitchen window so they could talk to me), and was super interested in hearing about my english grandma, who had taught me how to cook. I won’t hear a single bad word against this man, for all of his kitchen hysterics, he treated me like an equal.gordon ramsay fandom
If you’re not in the Gordon Ramsay fandom you’re wrong.
ramsey has been really consistent
people who are still learning don’t get yelled at. People who are professionals, people who claim to be experts, get called out when they’re not working up to that par. When they’re being dangerous or unhygienic or they’re taking advantage of their staff or customers. He calls people out on bullshit but even in his american show when he sees people who are not in the wrong- cooks who aren’t putting out great food because the owner won’t replace the ovens, overworked and underappreciated waitresses, he is kind, soft worded and gentle and reassures them it’s not their fault and it will be fixed. he’s such a great person.
This fantastic and moving tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman by Caleb Slain features over 40 of Hoffman’s films.
At 17:22 the video uses a clip from a 2010 interview with Ross Reynolds of NPR affiliate KUOW in which Hoffman says:
People need each other and that actual interaction or relationship or friendship or romantic love affair, all the different ways relationships take form—is one of the hardest things we do in our lives. It’s one of the biggest risks we’ll take in our lives… If you say ‘yes’ to someone, ‘I will,’ [you] are also saying, ‘I will be hurt by you.’ Because you can’t have relationships if you’re not willing to be disappointed and hurt by that person. It’s almost impossible. And you have to be able to enter the world and realize that the richness of life is all the good and joy and thrill of it, but also all the disappointment, hurt, and heartache of it—and that all of that is what’s great.
Hoffman spoke to Terry in 1999 and 2008. We play parts of both interviews in our tribute to him.
