Gordon Ramsay: The Biography


He has changed the way Britain eats, has cooked for prime ministers, has thrown Hollywood actresses out of his restaurants, is one of only three chefs in England whose restaurant is rated at three Michelin stars, and is on record for swearing more times in a single hour of prime-time television than anyone in the history of British broadcasting. Better known in the United States as the host of FOX's "Hell's Kitchen, " this former professional soccer player is one of the most driven, successful, and angry chefs around, and this first major biography details his story. Nothing is off-limits when Ramsay talks. He discusses the violent, alcoholic, absent father who died just days after the pair had been reconciled as adults; the best friend and protege whose bizarre suicide came hours after the two had shared a final meal; the decade-long battle to save his younger brother from heroin addiction and crime; and the real reason why Ramsay wasn't at the birth of any of his four children--and has never changed a diaper in his life. Sometimes hilarious and frequently heartbreaking, Gordon Ramsay's inspiring tale runs from the low-income housing of Glasgow to the picture-postcard countryside of Stratford-upon-Avon to some of the finest and most expensive restaurants in the world.
