Ramsay in Humble Pie writes precisely the way you’ve heard him speak during the numerous TV programs; in short, direct sentences which are to the point.
His book takes a much more personal approach where family takes precedence over his professional ambitions – one of them being to try and break Marco’s record of the youngest chef to get three Michelin stars.
He is open about his life, growing up with a father who wasn’t dependable and details about his siblings that many would hide from the world.
Still, encompassing all the hardships, his focus remains on food and it is clear that he is as cunning a businessman being able to tap into the zeitgeist of the time as he is a formidable cook who deserves all the success he has achieved.
Then there's the gossip, the back talk, the revelations and of course the debauchery committed that every chef seems to be proud of and which is responsible in parts for the reason why chefs are often compared to rock-stars.
If you enjoy food and are a fan of the Ramsay brand of television, then this one is a must read.
An autobiography that captures the essence of the man. Gordon Ramsay doesn't shy away from writing about all the ups and downs, the glory as well as the grim side of his life. It comes across as an honest endeavour and one can't help but admire the determination and drive of the man. Besides, it's told with panache and wit but be warned, his language can be a bit too 'colourful' at times!
I loved the way Gordon Ramsay tells his life's story. He's open, unapologetic and sincere. I couldn't put the book down. After finishing it, it left me with a sense of great respect for the man. Especially because of the courage, humility and resilience with which he handles the curves life throws at him
This is a stunning book as expected. For anyone who knows the name Gordon Ramsay, it's important you read this to know the unbelievable amount of hard work, rejection and will power the man kept at persistently, to be what he is.
This is a great book. I can't praise it highly enough. From a terrible childhood to a wonderful life with plenty of money and all the comforts anybody could wish for. Boy oh boy did he work for it though !!!! He is very honest and pulls no punches in his life story. Read half of it in one sitting. Am trying to read a bit slower now as I don't want this great book to end. I have worked in two large hotel kitchens so know how tough and stressy it is. He is a great guy, what a story, what a life !!!!!
