Gordon Ramsay Not a Fan of Top Chef
Gordon Ramsay, in an intervew with the Chicago Tribune's Red Eye blog, shared his thoughts on Top Chef:
Top Chef has done phenomenally well on Bravo but what I find my frustration is with Top Chef is that a challenge is a challenge. I put my contestants—my chefs, I hate that word contestants—in the world of cooking like they're running a restaurant because I'm giving a restaurant away. … I put them through the paces and understand that it's more of an entrepreneurial skill, as well, not just dealing with the kitchen, the management, the delegation, the level of professionalism. ... Chefs today have got to be better than just cooks."
