‘Hells Kitchen’ Chef’s Teachers Chewed Him Up, Spit Him Out

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Fox’s culinary boot camp reality show Hells Kitchen premieres Monday (May 30), but tirade-prone chef Gordon Ramsay says if you think he’s hot under the collar, you should have seen HIS teachers.

Ramsay trained as a chef in the 1980s, a time he says when kitchens weren’t exposed as they are now.

The chef says, “I worked for far worse [chefs], and if you thought that Hells Kitchen was a sort of real eye opener, then the chef’s I worked for would have been a Hollywood blockbuster.”

But he says, “One thing I never did was ring up and complain to my mum to talk to the chef because he’s shouting at me in a rude way.”

As he puts it: “You take your jacket off and leave your problems at work.”
