Pressestimmen

'Gordon Ramsay's Humble Pie - so exuberantly angry boastful, cliche-ridden, expletive-laden and touchingly sincere that I can't believe that a single sentence has been written by anyone but the failed footballer, great cook, telly star and businessman himself. He's the genuine bollocks, as he's so fond of saying, and this is the tale of his personal class struggle.' - The Observer 'Inspirational stuff.' Heat 'A mesmerising tale. It reads like a conversation and exudes personality. Ramsay finds it hard to dodge the f-word, but despite the defensiveness that comes accross, the book is an inspiration.' Irish Examiner

Kurzbeschreibung

Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, driven, stubborn. But this is his real story…

In this fast-paced, bite-sized edition of his bestselling autobiography Ramsay tells the real story of how he became the world’s most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brother’s heroin addiction, his failed first career as a footballer, his fanatical pursuit of gastronomic perfection and his TV persona - all the things that have made him the celebrated culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today. Gordon talks frankly about:

• his tough childhood: his father’s alcoholism and violence and the effects on his relationships with his mother and siblings

• his first career as a footballer: how the whole family moved to Scotland when he was signed by Glasgow Rangers at the age of fifteen, and how he coped when his career was over due to injury just three years later

• his brother’s heroin addiction.

• Gordon’s early career: learning his trade in Paris and London; how his career developed from there: his time in Paris under Albert Roux and his seven Michelin-starred restaurants.

• kitchen life: Gordon spills the beans about life behind the kitchen door, and how a restaurant kitchen is run in Anthony Bourdain-style.

• and how he copes with the impact of fame on himself and his family: his television career, the rapacious tabloids, and his own drive for success.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Humble Pie 16. Februar 2009
Von Paul Gargan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I've never been a Gordon Ramsey fan - I've always thought he was playing a character on TV and he seemed a little too smug for me. I wouldn't have read this autobiography either except that it was recommended to me. As with all autobiographies, the essence of the man comes through - and he is a lot more likeable than I thought he would be. After finishing the book I'm less inclined to believe that he is "putting it on" for TV and I actually think that he doesn't really give a damm what other people think and that he is fanatically driven by what he does. I'm not sure he's someone that I would want to have a beer with - but I'm not the hater that I was either.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow 15. Juni 2009
Von Diane Raylos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you ever have seen Gordan Ramsey on TV you know what he is about, rough, gruff, mean and likes to curse.

If you watch Kitchen Nightmares, he really seems like, well a bad guy. But it also comes across that he really does care about the people he is trying to help, and it becomes more clear as each episode goes on.

This book ties it all together in an honest book that goes through his life and the challenges he has faced getting where he is now. In almost classic fashion he made it past a harsh childhood and family problems to become who he is, and explains the fact that underneath the gruff and rough persona that is alot of what you see on television, when it comes down to it he really does care.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome read 28. Juli 2010

As it says it's a "quick read" which meant I was done with it in one afternoon. But it was very interesting and told me some things that I didn't know about Gordon Ramsay from other books I have read. I highly recommend it for your Gordon Ramsay library.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but missing some ingredients 18. August 2013
Von TomTomTara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Veers between easy reading and some confusing and dull passages for an American non-chef who is unfamiliar with nearly all of the persons mentioned in the book, ie, chefs in the UK, businessmen, etc., and also the slang used. For example, he describes his wife's kitchen as an "MFI job." What is that? Much of the book is devoted to his deal-making success, jumping from name to name without clarity. The book deals mainly in great leaps with his evolution as a business giant and not as a chef.

I would have liked to know more about how he went from "commis" cook (whatever that is) to his spectacular reputation as "Superchef". How did his "passion" develop, what were his early failures like, what are his favorite dishes, what does he cook at home, etc.?

On the positive side, I did enjoy this mostly fast-paced book and find him an interesting, volatile, energetic personality. He is brutally honest about himself and his family. While the flow of the book can be a litte jagged, to his credit it rings true and without the polished-apple feel of a ghostwriter. His "Kitchen Nightmares" series is the only one of his shows I watch and I've developed a jaundiced eye towards all restaurants after watching the series. I would love to have the pleasure of dining in one of his restaurants knowing his impeccable standards.

Followup: I downgraded my rating to 3 stars as I found out one of the key stories in the book was a lie which was exposed after the book was published (the "stolen" reservations book).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Humble Pie 5. März 2011
Von Spider Monkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed this book by Ramsay. It is very readable and he comes across as supremely passionate about his cuisine and career. It is written in his own style and reads almost as he would say it. The details of his life, his upbringing, culinary education and family dynamics make for engrossing reading and this makes for an easy couple of days reading without any deeper pretensions. Well worth a go.
