Gordon Ramsay to Open His Own Culinary School

If several hit television shows, a video game, Michelin star restaurants, and cookbooks weren't enough, Gordon Ramsay is planning to launch a UK chef academy. He's doing so in order to fight what he sees as poor standards of UK catering colleges. If the folks on Kitchen Nightmares (UK) are any indication of the standards, then maybe Gordon's onto something. At the recent opening of his new restaurant in Prague, Ramsay said:

I’m fed up not just with the [National Vocational Qualifications] standards, but at what’s coming out of our catering schools. I want to set up my own modern day apprentice scheme, where students will experience everything from a most amazing pub, to a one, two, or three Michelin starred establishment."

At a time when many folks are questioning whether or not culinary schools are a waste of time, do you think it makes sense for Gordon to open his own?

I am so excited about Gordon Ramsay's school....I wish he would open one up here in the U.S. so I could afford to attend.

Most of the cooking school provides flexibility in chef classes’ schedule. Students can choose from morning or evening classes. They can even go for weekend or vocational classes to enjoy their cooking hobby.

I think it's a great idea! From what I've seen of him on 'Kitchen Nightmares', he really seems to have a good eye for young talent and would always try to place them in a kitchen where they could eventually realize their potential.

that's kind of cool. i wonder if he would be nice to up and coming chefs or if he would yell at them like he does on all his shows.
