Gordon Ramsay is a culinary POWER HOUSE, with 12 Michelin stars and 22 successful restaurants around the globe. And thanks to this British series, hes also a wildly popular TV star. Kitchen Nightmares gives Ramsay one week to turn around failing restaurants. He does it with a combination of sound business sense, a perfectly attuned palate, and more than a pinch of profanity. The Complete Series Two also includes two Kitchen Nightmares Revisited episodes, in which Ramsay returns to the restaurants to see whether his interventions have worked. As packed with hubris and comeuppance as any Greek tragedy The Onion A.V. Club
"Undeniably the world's greatest TV chef" --NPR
There are a million ways to ruin a restaurant, but only one man has the audacity to attempt a rescue: Gordon Ramsay, "the Dr. House of sick restaurants" (NPR). In his storied career, Ramsay has earned 16 Michelin stars and launched culinary successes around the globe. This International Emmy®-winning series gives him one week to bring foundering restaurants back from the brink of collapse.
Dishing out heaping helpings of truth--liberally peppered with profanity--Ramsay goes eyeball to eyeball with lazy chefs, surly servers, and clueless owners, sharing his unbridled passion for food and hard-won business acumen. And he always returns later to see whether his interventions have worked. Part comedy, part drama, and all reality, these Kitchen Nightmares give a strikingly unglamorous glimpse into the inner workings of restaurants and the people who run them.
DVD FEATURE INCLUDES biography of Gordon Ramsay.
