Would you allow yourself to be spoken to like that by some poncey prima donna. Th French geezer is alright ,even the tantrums I can just about poke up with , but that Gary "yes chef , no chef"( three bags full chef) Rjhodes is just a T*** pot isnt he?Whats he trying to do out macho the Vinnie Jones of the culinary world Gordon "thug" Ramsey. I mean the bloke doesnt even have the courtesy to shake someones hand when its offered. Has he no manners or civility? I thought his style of management had gone out with the ark- bullying, intimidation,humiliating.I know its a game show but I reckon the man needs a good slap. As for the food . Whats that all about?I went to one of those poncy restaurants( Bailifs court) once and after I parked my rusty Corolla with its usual compliment of fauna and flora on board( ie arachnoids and gastropod molluscs plus sundry remnants of vegetation) next to the BMW I ventured in and grabbed the offered menu from the rather obsequious waiter and ordered set menu 1 @£25.My wife ordered set menu 2 @ £45 and after picking myself off the floor we sat at the table waiting for this gastronomic experience to arrive. Now the starter I had no problem with it was a sort of terrine and it was quite tasty. The main course consisted of one of those turrets sitting oin the middle of a large plate with a sauce dribbled round it . I said to the waiter " I didnt want the kiddies menu" for I swear 70% of what was in front of me was plate.|Now Im happen to like my grub but that was a joke and an expensive one at that. It looked pretty and probably would've looked ok at the Tate but not on my plate thank you very much. I want honest unpretentious grub. Dont mind if its foreign - Indian Thai, Italian, Spanish , Turkish even Argentine but ponced up food is a ripoff in my view.My bill came to £100 for two Arrrgh!
