Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is more a reality show than it is a cooking show, so viewers looking for useful how-to's from world-renowned chef Gordon Ramsay will be disappointed. The focus is rarely on his skills in the kitchen, instead playing up his animated personality and giving him a forum for his occasional foul-mouthed rants and penchant for hob-nobbing with the celebrities who dine in his restaurants. A cast of experts discusses various health and diet topics facing the food industry.

Sexual Content

Euphemisms and innuendoes are common. In one scene, men and women discuss food's effect on sperm count, so terms like "scrotum" and "testicles" are used.


Some episodes refer to the killing of a family's pet turkeys for Christmas dinner.


Frequent uses of "f--k" are bleeped. "Christ" and "damn" (unbleeped) are also common.

Social Behavior

As a mentor, Ramsay is often impatient and can be cruel with his critiques.


Ramsay's restaurants obviously get a lot of publicity from the show.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The show is set in a restaurant, so alcoholic beverages are prevalent among the adult diners.
