The Times Online has an article about how Ramsay’s former protégé Marcus Wareing has topped him in the the list of the world’s 100 best restaurants.
Paul Wootton, editor of Restaurant magazine which publishes the list is quoted as saying, “I think there may be a feeling among part of the restaurant industry and the foodie fraternity that some of the superchefs with large empires of restaurants are spreading themselves too thin.”
In Ramsay’s case he must be spreading himself very thinly indeed. It’s rare for a day to go by without him being in the news. He’s in numerous TV programmes around the world in the UK, USA, and Australia. He also seems to feature in every foodie magazine in the known universe.
Personally I’m rather tired of seeing him everywhere as I feel he has over-exposed himself (fnar, fnar). I feel sure I wouldn’t like him as a person. That said, I find his TV programmes compulsive viewing. I guess he’s just the guy we all love to hate.
