I’m a fan of Gordon Ramsay, mostly because I can tell he is passionate about what he does (in spite of his extreme commercialism) – he’s an interesting character.
One episode of his cooking show, he was making pan seared scallops and it was a thing of beauty. But then I started to wonder (as I have pan seared scallops many times, myself) “how hard is that?” I’m not sure if Ramsay is that good a chef, or if he’s really just a good production guy.
Ramsay gives a lot of critique; I think it’s appropriate to give him a critique in return. Seriously, though, as a knife-maker I cringed a bit when he pulled out a knife steel. But then… Aie!
Video editing is an art-form I am not very good at.
