It’s nice to see a chef who’s lost all of his or her confidence in the kitchen, suddenly rediscover their passion for cooking and what made them want to get into the business in the first place.
That’s exactly what happens in the clip below from Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell. In fact, the chef of the failing hotel restaurant is so happy to have Ramsay inject a bit of passion and urgency into his kitchen that he starts crying when he tastes a scallop dish that Ramsay’s prepared. The crucial scene is around 3.30 in.
It’s a touching moment and one that shows you can redicover that fire, no matter how far you’ve fallen from where you want to be.
As a bonus, take a look at this clip of Marco Pierre White describing how he made Gordon Ramsay cry, back when he was mentoring the young chef.
