Anyone who has watched Hell’s Kitchen knows that celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay can be a very intense person, which itself feels like an understatement. So what would it be like to work in a Gordon Ramsay restaurant for real? Former waitress Tash Pericic describes the experience of working for Gordon Ramsay as being “unlike any other.”
Pericic had moved to London from New Zealand with plans to travel around Europe. She already had significant experience in the restaurant industry when she applied to work at Maze, a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. She worked one night as a receptionist and one night as a waitress. She chose to settle into the waitress position.
Pericic performed well in her role and was eventually promoted to assistant manager. She essentially acted as the intermediary between the floor and the kitchen. Even though she was working for Gordon Ramsay, she dealt more with the head chef of the restaurant, whom she described as “what you see on Kitchen Nightmares.”
The head chef had a violent temper, and according to Pericic would throw pots and pans around the kitchen and scream at her during the middle of dinner service. Though this is how chef Gordon Ramsay appears to act on Hell’s Kitchen, Pericic described her interactions with him as being more pleasant than you might imagine.
