Gordon Ramsay Shames a Restaurateur Over Frozen Lasagna

New, 2 comments

On the latest episode of Kitchen Nightmares, lawsuit-embroiled shouty chef Gordon Ramsay headed down to Zeke's Restaurant in Metairie, Louisiana. After seeing that the lasagna special ($12.99) was made a week prior, then portioned, frozen, and microwaved to order, Ramsay told the restaurant owner, "How the fuck is that special in your tiny mind when it's cooked a week ago?"

To prove a point and humiliate the owners, Ramsay announces to a packed dining room that the lasagna special was a week old, and asked, rather logically, "When you come out to a restaurant and you read today's specials — for instance a beautiful homemade lasagna — would you expect that lasagna to be made today?" The owners, alas, still didn't get it.
