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 'I cannot recommend strongly enough that every BII member reads it. It's so refreshing and energising - and oddly the fact that every fifth word begins with 'F' adds to its charm, its passion and its delight...The book is an inspiration. Anybody running any kind of business will benefit from reading this.' BII Business magazine

Synopsis

Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, and stubborn as hell. But this is his real story...This is Gordon Ramsay's autobiography - the first time he has told the full story of how he became the world's most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brother's heroin addiction and his failed first career as a footballer: all of these things 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; 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.

Von Daniela R. am 1. September 2008
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Habe mich Anfangs durch die Seiten auf Englisch gequält, danach ging es besser! Leider gibt es das Buch noch nicht auf Deutsch. Aber die Sprache ist einfach gehalten und gut zu verstehen! Auch wenn man bestimmte Wörter nicht versteht, einfach weiterlesen, dann ergibt sich der Sinn von alleine.
Bin durch bestimmte TV-Sender auf Gordon Ramsay aufmerksam geworden und sah mir dann jede Sendung an! Was für ein krasser Typ! Somit wollte ich wissen, was hinter der Fassde steckt und wie der Koch der Köche (für mich jedenfalls!) aufgewachsen ist. Und siehe da, wir haben einige Gemeinsamkeiten :o)
Ich finde, diese Seite von ihm zu kennen, macht ihn menschlicher. Man liest, wie er sich durch viele Sachen im Leben durchboxen musste und es nicht immer einfach hatte, z.B. seine Lehrjahre in der Küche oder das komplizierte (Lotter-)Leben mit seinem Vater und dem drogenabhängigen Bruder.
Vielleicht wirkt er deshalb auf viele Köche knallhart. Ich selber finde ihn gradlinig, er eiert nicht rum, bringt unbequeme Punkte auf den Tisch und sucht dennoch mit einem zusammen nach Lösungen und Verbesserungen. Na ja, der Mann weiß einfach wo es lang geht und wovon er spricht :o)

Fazit: für alle die ihr "Schulenglisch" aufbessern wollen und auch wissen möchten, wie es hinter den Kulissen eines Starkochs aussehen kann, ist dieses Buch zu empfehlen. Rezepte sind (leider) keine drin, da hat Gordon schon genug Bücher rausgebracht :o)
Das Buch ist mit Fotos aus seinem Privatalbum "bestückt" und lockert es somit auf. Kapitel sind nicht ewig lang und doch emotional geschrieben. Er selber nimmt kein Blatt vor den Mund und hält sich nicht für einen Engel. Trotzdem ein liebevoller Vater und Ehemann!

Einfach Klasse.

I have been a big fan of Gordon Ramsey's televisions shows, "Hell's Kitchen", "Kitchen Nightmare's", and "The F Word". When I saw this book, I knew I wanted to read it to get to know more about my favorite television chef. Well, the amazing thing is that I actually believe that he wrote this book himself, as he sounds just as he does on television. His personality just jumps out at the reader from the pages of this book.

That being said, this book is really a brief biography of his life to date. It has definitely been a hardscrabble life until the past few years, when his hard work finally paid off. Brought up in dire poverty in a totally dysfunctional family with an abusive, alcoholic father, it is amazing to see the success he has made of himself. Gordon paints a candid portrait of himself, and what comes across is a somewhat oafish, hardworking, intelligent and driven individual with some very set ideas and exacting standards. He is definitely a control freak, albeit a likeable one.

Those readers who enjoy his shows will most definitely enjoy this book, which is a very easy and quick read. The reader will marvel at the obstacles this passionate man has overcome to reach the pinnacle of success that he has. What one sees on television is what one gets in this book. So, be prepared for some coarse language and a somewhat inelegant writing style, as well as a very frank portrait of one of today's premier chefs.

Was soll man über das Alpha-Tier der Kochszene sagen.
Ich kenne einige Küche aus der Hotelbranche und die Umgangsformen sind dort ziemlich hart - fast wie beim Militär. Er liebt und verkörpert den Job so wie den erfolgreichen Geschäftsmann und leibenden Vater.

Das er erfolgreich ist steht außer Frage.
Das Buch liest sich leicht und dank Kindle kann man nach ein paar Slang-Ausdrücken im Dictionary stöbern, und diese kommen sehr oft vor.

Es ist gut weil einfach geschrieben und es ist direkt von der Seele geschrieben ohne schöne Wörter und in einer verständlichen und normalen Sprache.
Ein Egomane der auch sehr selbstkritisch sein kann und der zudem tiefe Einblicke in die Multimillionen Euro Gastronomie gewährt.
Sehr empfehlenswert für echte Frauen und Kerle nichts für Weichspüler :-)

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating tale of a fascinating man, told poorly 14. April 2015
Von Jeff Wignall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
First of all I am a huge Gordon Ramsay fan. I absolutely love Kitchen Nightmares and I wish he was still making more episodes (I hope he returns to the show at some point). And so, being such a big fan, I really wanted to learn more about life and his background so that I understood the show better. And, in that respect, this book was a big help: when you see the misery that Ramsay grew up with--a father with a wandering eye who fancied himself a rock 'n roller, constant moves to new cities, poverty--you begin to understand why business success means so much to him. When he crashes down on a restaurant owner (particularly a family-owned restaurant), it's not because he's mean or psychotic, it's because he genuinely cares about the people he's trying to counsel and their families. He knows firsthand the misery of a crappy childhood and a failed business and he's trying to help them avoid those things. Moreover, Ramsay is trying to help restaurant owners rediscover their passion for cooking.

All of these things became much more clear to me as I read this book. I have to say, however, that while I'm an American of Brit descent and grew up with Brit parents, jeez, Gordon, lighten up on the Brit talk! I had to look up dozens of words to even know what he was talking about, or at least guess at them based on context. There is a LOT of British slang in this book--a LOT. Also, the writing is pretty lame. I'm a professional writer and Ramsay desperately needed a good professional writer to ghost-write this book for him/with him. The editor for this book was sleeping on the job.

I learned a lot from the book, but I think Ramsay has a much better book inside him. He is unafraid to reveal the truth of his past and he is unafraid to be vulnerable (a great quality) but you have to love him at the start of this book or you'll never finish it. It was a struggle for me. If I were reviewing this book as a meal, I'd say it was interesting for its ingredients and its concept, but lacking in its execution. It does not, however, lack anything in the way of passion.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great, easy read 2. Oktober 2016

I've watched Chef Ramsey since he was on BBC doing Kitchen Nightmares. I've always seen him as this meticulous and passionate chef, but never thought how he became this larger-than-life character that we see on our TV's. In this book, no subject is off-limits. He is extraordinarily honest about his less than poor and humble beginnings. He talks about the mental, physical, emotional, and verbal abuse the whole family suffered from an alcoholic father. He was born in Glasgow, however, the family moved over and over because the father could never keep a job. He talks about getting his start in the kitchens in England and in
France. During the book, I found a new respect for Chef Ramsey. He even goes into the heartache of having his younger brother hooked on heroin. I couldn't put this book down.
5.0 von 5 Sternen I have always loved Gordon Ramsey 19. September 2016
Von Theresia A. Rhodes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have always loved Gordon Ramsey. Even though he has a temper and uses bad language I still admire him. This book really opens up on the reason he is the hard driven man he is today. I respect how he has persevered through many hardships. He has remained a very successful in spite of all he had to endure. One thing for sure he has helped many along the way find their true purpose in preparing high quality food. If you cannot give it your best than leave the kitchen. Also I admire how he has taken his own hard earned money to help others succeed in their restaurants. Very enlightening book on the man Gordon Ramsey.
5.0 von 5 Sternen An Endearing Look Into the Life of a Great Human Being Who Happens to Be a Chef 29. April 2014
Von Sunny Rosario - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book immediately on the heels of reading Marco Pierre White's "The Devil in the KItchen" and the two made a magnificent pair. You get the gossip from both sides and although I'm very partial due to my giant GR crush, I appreciated Gordon's book so much more. Why? Because he shows his vulnerability as a human being by digging deep into some very serious personal issues. White's book is definitely more about the food except, of course, when he pauses to trash a former colleague or employee or boast he HE was the first of celebrity chefs, not GR or anyone else for that matter. GR devotees see in him the tenderness that comes from being a battered kid hell-bent on escaping his past through food. Yes, the book is ghost-written but it matters not because I can hear Gordon's own voice in my head (swooooon) as I read. The book captures all of his wit and naughty humor and then some. Whether you are a GR fan, a chef or wannabe or just curious about this "squishy-faced" Scotsman we've come to know/love/hate, there is something for you in this book. A quick read with some great photos at end, I was surprised (and a little wistful) when I so quickly reached the last page.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Ramsay was a chef before being a chef was trendy ... 23. Mai 2015
Von Ruby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ramsay was a chef before being a chef was trendy. In his book, he chronicles the adversities that have made him into a culinary genius. Through a lot of personal drama (very brief and concise but the flow of the book needs some work) and a ton of hard work, he pulls through. Ramsay is absolutely honest in the whole book, it shows his grittiness in full color. He talks about the underbelly of the cooking world, the massive pressure to cook and above all, cook well. Though the language in the book may a bit too colorful, it gives Ramsay his signature attitude. I wish the book would have included a little bit of footnotes as Gordon talks about a lot of his famous contemporaries, though his descriptions are adequate, it is not nearly enough unless you are a food critic.
