Renowned for saying it how it is, it’s no surprise to hear that Gordon Ramsay extends that mantra to his own kids.
He’s only gone and told them to ‘fuck off to another chef’ for a job if they’re looking to pursue a career in the culinary industry.
The chef, 52, whose wife Tana is pregnant with their fifth child, admitted he didn’t want his staff to feel like they couldn’t scold his kids in the kitchen.
Speaking to a US radio station, Ramsay spoke about how he’s forbidden his four children – Matilda, 17, Jack and Holly, 19, and Megan, 21 – from asking their dad for a job.
He said: “I’m firm, I’m fair and I will give you everything I’ve got to get you to the very top.
“And that’s it, no bullshit. I take a lot of flak for being straight and honest, but I’m not worried about that fucking snowflake generation.”
He went on to add: “It’s like not employing the kids. I don’t want the staff thinking, ‘Fuck it’s Ramsay’s kid, we can’t tell them off.’
“You want to work in this business? You fuck off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business.”
You’ve got to respect Gordon for that.
