Escoffier or Ramsay who influenced the industry more?
What a question.
George Auguste Escoffier died in 1935 and is legendary in French
cuisine history. His methods and innovations transformed
Traditional French Cuisine into the art form it is today. He was
without doubt one of the most influential leaders of this centuries
"chef" Gordon Ramsay is fast become known only for his caustic
and often careless personality. A bully in the kitchen, he seems
more taken with Hollywood style showmanship than passing on his
skills to up and coming chefs. He is doing no one a favor by
stifling the aspirations of young and eager students.
There is no comparison.
