Yes, chef

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay dropped by Everett this week to shoot a segment at a local restaurant for his reality TV show, “Kitchen Nightmares.” On the show, Ramsay attempts to turn around struggling restaurants — and addresses anyone who gets in his way as a “stupid #!#!ing donkey,” and worse.

Real-world bosses who try Chef Ramsay’s approach often wind up in a reality show of their own, called “Hostile Workplace Lawsuit Nightmares.”
