Ramsay cooks up perfect recipe

Playing with Fire, by Gordon Ramsay (HarperCollins, RRP $36.99):

Gordon Ramsay is a bloke with a big mouth but he’s got the talent to back up all his noise.

He seems to be popping up all over the telly these days and is now very much a brand in his own right.

But it hasn’t all been a walk in the park. Ramsay isn’t one of those celebrity chefs who came from a background of wealth or privilege. In fact, it’s probably safe to say money was pretty tight in the Ramsay household as he was growing up.

His rise to the top of his game in the world of fine dining hasn’t been without its hiccups, with a few wee failed ventures and tricky deals along the way helping mould Ramsay into the shrewd, brash and oh-so-brutally honest businessman he is today.

Add to that mix a stack of talent when it comes to food and an enviable ability to be himself, warts and all, on the TV screen, and you have the end result: a self-made millionaire who is pure entertainment when stalking around a kitchen.

The perfect recipe.
