jessicameats: brunhiddensmusings: katjohnadams: minusthelove: kingjaffejoffer: Executive chef at a top Thai restaurant tells Gordon Ramsay that his Pad Thai is trash [x] Lmao “what do you want to know from me?” Fuck! So no one thinks that Gordon’s being “Put in his place” or something, this is from Gordon’s show where he specifically goes to places around the world to be schooled in how they do their cuisine and un-fuck the British (Imperialist but we can’t admit that on TV, but he does hint STRONGLY at it in some episodes) way of cooking “exotic” dishes by learning from the people who do it best. That’s the world’s most successful chef putting himself in a position to learn from chefs around the world in world-class restaurants, grandmother’s houses, in a cramped make-shift kitchen on a rocking and speeding steam train, and more. He doesn’t shy away from learning from people who’ve never been in the remote vicinity of a culinary arts school or run a “professional” kitchen. And here he’s showing a chef what he thinks of as Pad Thai and if you don’t think one of the most talented chefs on earth didn’t know he was specifically setting himself up to fail to make a point to his audience, then hopefully you do now! <3  the context- he wasnt saying ‘heres my world famous pad tai for you to sample, a recipe i hold more dear then my own mother’ its closer to  ‘here, this is how i was taught to cook pad tai in liverpool by a man named charles, how far off am i?’ I also think the precise criticism is interesting. The other chef doesn’t say it’s bad. He definitely doesn’t say it’s trash. He doesn’t say it’s a bad meal. What he says is that it’s not pad thai. It’s been labelled as a specific thing and it doesn’t resemble that thing to someone from that culture. : jessicameats: brunhiddensmusings: katjohnadams: minusthelove: kingjaffejoffer: Executive chef at a top Thai restaurant tells Gordon Ramsay that his Pad Thai is trash [x] Lmao “what do you want to know from me?” Fuck!

filteredred: fuzzballsheltiepants: What happens when veterinary radiologist Andrew Minyard’s attempt to get some pad thai and some sleep gets interrupted by a an alley fight and a stabbing?  Naturally, he brings the uninsured victim to his clinic to get stitched up.  Read the full story if you want a generous helping of smart-mouthed Neil and reluctant hero Andrew.  Written for a prompt by @filteredred as a gift for guessing my AFTG Remix fic correctly! Squealing! This is so good!! HWorth every minute @fallingin-like and I spent reading fics and analyzing them on a spread sheet! Haha - we are such nerds!) This is so clever and fun! OMG they are both so grumpy - who else in the world could fall for either one of them? But together - magic. One of my favorite meet ugly fics and certainly my favorite meet stabby! Thanks so much for all the writing you do for our fandom, and for this gem. 💖 : X50 gNINMI8 RMO COPLEY CONDC filteredred: fuzzballsheltiepants: What happens when veterinary radiologist Andrew Minyard’s attempt to get some pad thai and some sleep gets interrupted by a an alley fight and a stabbing?  Naturally, he brings the uninsured victim to his clinic to get stitched up.  Read the full story if you want a generous helping of smart-mouthed Neil and reluctant hero Andrew.  Written for a prompt by @filteredred as a gift for guessing my AFTG Remix fic correctly!
