When I was in the UK I have to say I was never a huge fan of the TV chef Gordon Ramsey. It wasn't so much the choice language that got to me, it was more his ego - plus I didn't enjoy 'Hell's Kitchen' with it's D list celeb's!
But now I am here I am a huge Gordon Ramsey fan! My better half is too -we both love to watch 'Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares' on BBC America and fall about laughing.
My theory on this sudden love of Gordon is he just makes me feel 'at home'. I miss that bluntness and 'in your face, tell it like it is' aggression the Brit's seem to thrive on. Probably 60% of what he actually says is bleeped out here, but that doesn't matter because I can fill in the bleeps! And more than anything Gordon is a master practitioner of that favourite British pastime - the use of sarcasm and I am now seriously out of practice in that area!
