The clip below, which has been floating around for a while, finds an older Pierre White in a somewhat mellower mood. It’s taken from an interview at an Australian radio station roughly three years ago. The cringe-worthy presenter is straight out rude to the British chef, but rather than lose his temper, Pierre White cuts the interview short in a calm manner, but there's no mistaking who's in charge – the chef is polite, but you can feel the menace in his voice as it gets lower and slower.
Have a listen. You can almost hear the DJ quaking as Pierre White admonishes and no doubt fixes him with an icy glare. Oh to be a fly on the wall in that radio studio.
