Chef Gordon Ramsay may find American audiences more welcoming than the British ones. The Glasgowegian Scottish culinary whip cracker is giving chef Emeril Lagasse a run for it in the entrepeneurial department.
The Ramsay empire includes the restaurants Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, Royal Hospital Road, Boxwood Café, Angela Hartnett at the Connaught, Maze, Pétrus, Banquette, The Savoy Grill, Verre, Gordon Ramsay at Conrad Tokyo, Cerise by Gordon Ramsay, Gordon Ramsay at The London.
His TV Shows are now USA version of Hell's Kitchen, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, The F-Word, Boiling Point & Beyond Boiling Point.
Despite all this success, the celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has been relieved of his apron by his mentor on the U.K. version of Hell's Kitchen.
Marco Pierre White trained young Ramsay, and has claimed the outspoken culinary expert stole his trademark swearing outbursts, and the suits at ITV1 believe White is the man to inject fresh energy into the show, reports the Daily Star newspaper.
Ramsay, who is loved by Yankee audiences and fans of Hell's Kitchen, is typically unfazed by the news: "I couldn't give a s**t." Americans are starved for and appreciate straight talkers.
