Gordon Ramsay doesn’t care about your gender, race, or creed. All he cares about is that you can cook.
The contestant, Christine, is blind, and he lets her know exactly what he thinks of her dish.
OMG I was preparing myself to be enraged by him making some horrible comment but now I’m crying in Starbucks GOD DAMMIT
Christ I am not okay with these fEELINGS
That’s so cute I wanna cry
Is there a Gordon Ramsay fan base on this site??? And where can i join???
Spoilers, she won. Her cookbook is on sale now.
Also, this is the very first apple pie she ever made.
Also, can we please take notice OF HOW HE DESCRIBES IT FOR HER? Ramsay was extremely conscious during the entire season that she would require different tactics than the other contestants; this was not the only time he became her eyes, nor the only time he did things like that scrape of the knife so she could actually have a sense of her work.
And if you really want to bawl like a baby? During final four or final three, I forget which, the remaining contestants got photos from home. Christine’s husband sent their wedding photo—which she had never seen. Ramsay paused before starting the challenge to describe to her not only her husband—the look of love and joy on his face—but also herself as a bride, so she could see in her mind how the two of them looked together on their wedding day.
It was extremely obvious nobody had ever thought to do that before.
This man should be a fucking icon not just for his cooking, but for how he treats those who are different. During the same season he asked a handsome young man, making conversation during auditions, if he had a girlfriend. The man responded that he was gay. Ramsay, without missing a beat: “I’m sorry. Have you got a boyfriend, then?” No drama, no “oh my GOSH! You’re GAY? TOKEN CHARACTER :DDDD” just a very quick, simple whoops-my-mistake and the corrected inquiry. And then he never brought it up again! It was just a thing he learned, getting to know a contestant.
Yes, he can be harsh on MasterChef and downright cruel on Hell’s Kitchen (although if you were a sous chef and you served me raw pork that was not pork tartare, I’d scream too). But he’s not an ogre; he’s a polite man with a gigantic heart who simply happens to take no shit from those who should know better.
I really love Gordon Ramsay and his willingness to learn from others
You see how nasty he gets on Kitchen Nightmares but he goes into another chef’a kitchen and lets them treat him like shit when they’re teaching him
He once tried to learn how to make hand pulled noodles from a Chinese chef and he didn’t patronize or condescend just treated him with total respect and let the man call him an idiot when he failed and took it all with a great sense of humor
I follow his twitter and he’s just so funny and nice and I LOVE HIM OK
I totally love Gordon Ramsay.
Some of the things he did to teach her are amazing. I have to wonder if he was coached by anyone to help her because most people just don’t think like this. At the same time, his life is food, so he knows its not about what you can see sometimes.
This is beautiful.
In one of Bourdain’s first chef books he talks about Ramsey, how Bourdain saw an English reality show of Ramsey’s restaurant with Ramsey being a total control freak at his restaurant, screaming at his employees.
When Bourdain went to the same restaurant 5+ years later he was astounded… the same people still worked there. Throughout the screaming they were dedicated to Ramsey because – he was dedicated to them.
