Summary

Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, 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
  • 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.

Very entertaining

Loved it. Ramsay comes across as very honest, he speaks his mind, as we know, and here he puts you under his spell talking about his life story at 90 miles an hour. I was left feeling that though he is a hard man, he's very much a product of his environment, especially his vicious father, who he is ultimately different from.

Good but a bit short

Loved Marco Pierre White's autobiography so this was a natural follow on. I loved the book and Gordon's voice is easy to listen to. I just wish it contained more

Yes, chef, I like it.

This is a great story, brilliantly well told and narrated by Gordon himself. His breathy, chatty style is just right for the content. The first f...... h... comes as a bit of a shock (I kept expecting him to be bleeped!) but it is no holds barred as he describes his tough childhood and rise to the top. Skulduggery and backstabbing in the kitchen and his views on other chefs provide laughs, but his total passion for food, and, indeed, life comes over clearly. Humble he ain't, but obviously very proud of what he has achieved, and quite right too. Very inspiring.

Brilliant!

I love Gordan, but this has taken the biscuit. (Pardon the pun) for a brilliant, dramatic, well performed piece of work. I would love for him to go into more detail, and for the story itself to have more of a common thread, but other than that i would highly recommend it.

Touching

This was very interesting, My parents thought that they knew the real Gordon Ramsay, stubborn, snobby and well off, but who knew the dark depressing past behind him, many abusive people, deaths pressure and even a background of poverty, I would recommend this book to anyone that is ok with vulgar, mild language
