Gordon Ramsay sits down at the table on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue!
The 52-year-old chef – along with fellow A-list culinary celebrities Padma Lakshmi, Roy Choi, Jon Favreau, David Chang, and Samin Nosrat – are all featured in the mag’s first-ever “20 Power Players of Food Media” feature. Here’s what they had to share:
David on the explosive uptick in food programming: “Food’s only been really analyzed in America since Anthony Bourdain wrote ‘Kitchen Confidential.’ Then maybe a few years ago, people thought there was a saturation in TV, but that’s because the shows were all too similar. Now the people actually making food have been able to convince TV that a lot remains untouched.”
Gordon on his biggest on-camera disaster: “Making chicken curry on live TV, not noticing that the burner wasn’t on. When I fed the guests, they only pretended to eat it. I had no idea it was raw.”
Padma on what she wants to see more from on food shows: “I want to see more people get down and dirty with fermentation. There are so many fermentation practices happening in various cuisines.”
Roy on what HE wants to see more of on food shows: “More mothers! Women who have raised generations; women who can cook just as proficiently as a banquet chef for The Ritz-Carlton.”
Gordon on what he wants to do next: “Food TV has really exploded, and that’s exciting to me as a producer. But I’d rather front less and create more.”
