i heart gordon ramsay

99% of the time I watch any kind of TV on my ipad, Gordon Ramsay is front and center on the screen: 

Hell’s Kitchen
Master Chef
Master Chef Junior
Kitchen Nightmares
Hotel Hell

I was going to give you a list of reasons I love this man, his shows, his food, his people. But then while researching Gordon, I stumbled upon an old long-form article from The New Yorker from 2007 and I was completely captivated.

So instead of me telling you all about this man, I’m challenging you to go read the entirety of this article from The New Yorker, The Taming of the Chef.

Yes, it’s long. But honestly, in a time when I’m reading less and less, I need to challenge myself to read (& eventually write) long articles instead of BuzzFeed-like list articles.

Whew. Okay, let’s get started.
