Multi Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay is back with his trademark mix of tough talking and inspirational leadership for another foray into some of the UKs scariest kitchens in a fourth season of the BAFTA and International Emmy award-winning series. This time round Gordon is pushed to the limit as he faces a succession of worst-ever restaurants, from a vegetarian eatery in Paris and a huge curry house in Nottingham, to a trip to a meat carvery in Sussex and an oyster bar in Brighton with delusions of grandeur. Gordon singularly fails to turn around one restaurant but manages to make another phenomenally successful, tripling its turnover. And there are walk-outs, shut-outs and shouting matches galore, including one obstinate chef who just wont leave until hes physically removed for good. Irrepressible and irresistible, Gordons approach is more radical than ever: making vegetarian food sexy for the French, using sustainable seafood to reinvent fish and chips and making authentic regional Indian food to replace oily slop. Moving, surprising and inspiring, Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares takes viewers to the heart of the harsh reality of running a restaurant, and reveals that theres always a chance of redemption even with the most seemingly unpromising ingredients.
Advantages: Always one close by, quick turn out, children are welcome and catered for. Disadvantages: Toilets can be quite disturbing, not all dishes taste as good they are described.
