Jacques Pepin on Gordon Ramsay

October 16, 2011

Legendary French chef and PBS host Jacques Pepin gave an interview with The Washingtonian where he talked about a number of topics, including outspoken British chef Gordon Ramsay. 

"I wasn't crazy about Hell's Kitchen. For me food is still, to a certain extent, an act of love. You always cook for the other. You always cook for your friend or your wife or your lover or for your kid or your cousin or your mother. But it's always giving, and being together. When I saw a show like that where everyone is yelling, everyone gets terrorized, there is no way you can produce great food under that type of condition. You cannot give of yourself."
