Book ~ "Roasting in Hell's Kitchen: Temper Tantrums, F Words, and the Pursuit of Perfection" - Gordon Ramsay (2007)

From Amazon.com ~ 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.

I'm not much into cooking but I like Hell's Kitchen. This was an interesting book to read because it was a chance to get to know Gordon Ramsay ... and it should indeed change your perception about him. He writes as he speaks ... lots of "F" words.

Definitely a book to check out!

I have only seen that show once...And it just didn't interest me that much....I should watch it again, cause I am totally HOOKED on "TOP CHEF"...! I love looking at the finished plated foods....etc.

Isn't this show kind of like Iron Chef? I used to like the original Japanese one much better than the AMerican one. They had some WEIRD foods. LOL.
