Like this one?But whatever. I blame television rather than Ramsay for this one. He’s working with the parameters he has and trying hard to be a showman who makes it work. There are other vids of his that I find cringe worthy though.
I'm impressed he put salt on the Fritos.Like this one?
I also have his Masterclass I and II series. I don't think he is a very good teacher he has this TV persona developed and it's basically the same mannerisms repeated over and over. Further, it comes across to me that he doesn't truly understand the underlying concepts of why he does what he does in cooking, and is just repeating what he was taught to do. For an example we can understand around here, look at his behavior with knives: he repeats "let the knife do the work" repeatedly. What does that even mean?
Michelin and Beard are such a racket. Sometimes genuinely good stuff is recognized without any "under table handshakes" though.I'm impressed he put salt on the Fritos.
I mean, the techniques he used here don't look terrible given the ingredients at hand, but what is the freakin point of making such a weird dish out of prepared items on the side of a race track... I guess it was entertaining?
I'm more bothered by his perpetuation of old kitchen myths, like the fast sear "sealing in the juices" and stuff. Just like you say "he doesn't truly understand the underlying concepts of why he does what he does in cooking, and is just repeating what he was taught to do."
But then again, he has a million Michelin stars and I've never even diced 10 onions in a row. So I should shut up.
No surprises, there are multiple Ramseys. The one that did the 20-part cooking show for UK TV is excellent (and unintentionally hilarious when he's just done a line or seven before recording a segment) but the one who did the US TV stuff is a complete wanker.Not a Ramsey fan
His motion looks smooth enough. Maybe he just doesn't ever cut with the tip?I think he's better at cooking than sharpening.
Don't think the mask's a problem here. I mean, he's standing 1 foot away from someone not in his immediate circle of people. Seems responsible.I knew I was missing a step in my sharpening, I need to wear a mask, even outdoors, NOT
I was curious, so I went looking for it. Kenji made a total of four posts here, all in the same thread.Kenji's knife creds were established when he called the Misen the "Holy Grail".
Popcorn worthy pissing contest with him buried in the KKF basement.
Obviously, I can’t see the deleted postsThanks Michi. I don't think you counted the deleted posts. Otherwise spot on.
