Gordon Ramsay's Real Exec Chef

New, 6 comments

Meet Andy Cook, executive chef of Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood hotel, and he didn't even need to win a TV 'reality show' to get there. We find out what the former Tokyo chef thinks about the LA dining scene, California ingredients, serving pig's head, working out the many, many kinks at the restaurant, how it's not all about Gordon, and not really knowing who the winner of Hell's Kitchen is (although we all know it's Christina by now): "Gordon assures me that they’re an interesting and keen and intelligent person." The chef also discusses bringing sushi to sushi-saturated LA: "We have a good idea of what we’re doing. The Western palate isn’t really attuned to a lot of the stuff the Japanese eat." [Metromix]
