Gordon Ramsay: ‘I’m a chef, for God’s sake’

Ramsay5

Gordon Ramsay fell in love yesterday — with a Bloody Mary sorbet.

“I was slightly dubious about it” at first, he confessed, noting that it is seasoned with Tabasco sauce. “Now I’m over the moon. It’s working brilliantly.”

Ramsay shared this morsel during a phone chat yesterday afternoon (he was somewhere in England) to talk about the mega renewal deal he’s just inked with Fox for two more seasons of “Hell’s Kitchen” and Kitchen Nightmares,” plus a blind series commitment and plans for a  live “cook-along-with-Gordon” special sometime in the coming season.

That’s a lot for a guy who’s already hosting multiple shows in the U.K. and running a growing portfolio of Ramsay-branded restaurants.

“It’s a happy problem,” Ramsay assures. “I take it all very seriously, and I have an amazing (production) team behind it all.”

Mike Darnell, Fox’s prexy of alternative programming and Ramsay’s biggest fan on this side of the Atlantic, is in awe of Ramsay’s work ethic. He doesn’t just host “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Kitchen Nightmares”; he is those shows, Darnell says.

“Unlike a regular reality show host comes in, does his job and leaves — these are incredibly demanding television shows for Gordon,” Darnell says. “On ‘Nightmares,’ he spends four-to-five days in each city. He’s on camera 12 hours a day. This is a hard-working man.”
