Gordon Ramsey interview on 6/06/06 about “Hell’s Kitchen” Las Vegas FOX cooking show.
The culinary competition Hell’s Kitchen Las Vegas program starring frequently agitated English Chef Gordon Ramsay debuted with a two-hour episode at 8 p.m. Monday on Fox. The show brings together 12 would-be restaurateurs in a competition officiated by Ramsay, a self-described perfectionist who has been known to, shall we say, verbally tenderize his contestants.
The winner of “Hell’s Kitchen 2,” taped in February in a Los Angeles TV station converted to a restaurant (with some segments taped at Red Rock Resort Las Vegas), will work as an executive chef at TBones at Red Rock Resort Las Vegas . The victor will also be eligible to receive a financial interest in the restaurant.
During a conference call from London, Ramsay heaped praise on Las Vegas as a culinary mecca.
“Las Vegas is the Monte Carlo of America. I have never been in a city like it that houses so many top international chefs,” Ramsay said. “It’s not a playground with a few casinos. It’s a culinary capital of talent from around the world.”
Ramsay said he would one day like to join that talent.
“It would be an extraordinary opportunity. I would love to get to Vegas,” he said, but “the objective right now is for the winner (of ‘Hell’s Kitchen’) and the restaurant to flourish.”
Ramsay explained his often prickly temperament on the Hell’s Kitchen in Las Vegas.
“Six months after the program has finished, the winner and the restaurant have to be successful. If it goes to the wrong person, I have not done my job,” he said. “If I had (only) $1,000 to give away, there would be no call for that firm toughness. But I treat it as if it’s my own kitchen, with my own standards. I’ve spent some time in the kitchen with Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud, and when the (stuff) hits the fan - when a table spending $7,000 on a meal sends the duck back because it hasn’t been cooked properly - they’re not talking (to the staff) like a parade is going on.
“We’re not running a hairdressing salon. We’re running a kitchen.”
