Bear’s Den Pizza 24 hours to hell and back

Gordon Ramsay set aside out of Pizzeria bear Den Pizza in a college town in Conway Arkansas owned by Brad and Steven they are co-owners of Bruster’s and Bears Pizza Den

Brad is conservative has a wife and family, Steven is it happy with a clear substance abuse problem which is causing problems not only in the business but in a friendship as well Steven has spent his time at the restaurant destroying the foundation poking holes and breaking furniture the decor is ripped and the kitchen does not have a working stove as a pizza oven and a microwave.

As you first walk into the restaurant a couple things that are noted

  • Drinking on the job
  • Filthy Grill
  • Microwave food
  • Poorly stored food (canned cheese)
  • Infestation
  • Uncalibrated freezer
  • Inventory unaccounted for

After Gordon takes off his hippie disguised he takes a guest outside to show everyone what is going on Brad meets the crew at Hell on Wheels.

After talking to the employees it is apparent that Brad is not in control of the situation Brad has allowed Steven to take control over Bears Den which has lead to disastrous results for the point where the employees we’re ready to quit because of Stevens Behavior.

After a drastic look at the kitchen Gordon makes it clear to them that they need to step it up and clean everything in the kitchen in order to move forward and that’s exactly what they do.

While the team is preparing the restaurant the cooks are learning the new menu Gordon decides to sit with Brad and explain to him that he needs to remove Steven from the restaurant after talking to Brad Cordon set aside at Steven who is dealing with substance abuse and depression from his failed is among other things he tries to convince Gordon that he quit drinking but Gordon knows better.

As relaunch is approaching Brad and Gordon try to convince Steven to step back Brad offers Steve a role as a silent partner so he can check himself into a rehabilitation center Which is how anyone employer or partner should conduct business.

With the new kitchen and the decor looking amazing the doors are finally open relaunch however the chef still need a little more training but with the house of Gordon and his team the Pizza makers bounce back and with that they end the night on a great note and a successful relaunch

Three months later they’re doing pretty well and Steven is doing a lot better.

In conclusion when you’re running a business with someone you have to hold each other accountable when something is not being done that includes letting anything’s pass and when it comes to issues so sensitive as substance abuse you have to handle it with love and compassion.

Gordon Ramsay 24 hours to hell and back the park Restaurant and Bar

This episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hours to hell and back Gordon sets his sights to Oak Park, CA, to save the Park Restaurant and Bar owned and operated by Kirin and Angelita Stone.

706 Lindero Canyon Rd #752, Oak Park plaza oak park, CA 91377

Opened in 2017 they’ve been through a lot of trials and tribulations due to the wildfires in Oak Park in 2019 when they lost their home because of it since then they haven’t been able to attract enough attention to keep the doors open as a result he let go of his GM and his executive chef which proved to be disastrous.

When he’s not running a restaurant is a host of a show called The fixers (2019) a One-hour high-stakes reality series in which an “A-team” of experienced builders travels around the world to remote locations in significant need.

However, without proper leadership, the restaurant is doing terrible so Gordon decides to see what’s wrong with the place from self and while he plays a firefighter.

He enlists the help of football legend Rob Gronkowski to distract everyone else from his disguise as Captain Frank.

When you first enter the restaurant it seems more like a beach bar then anything else the decor is Bland and the food looks like it came out of Grease pit after Gordon reveals himself Katie the bartender who should be the GM immediately starts crying out of sheer embarrassment.

Gordon goes to the whole slideshow of what’s going on behind closed doors which is a lack of leadership poor rotation of food and negligence from the owner and the only ones that have it together are the employees the 2 Cooks, however, do need a little bit more supervision.

During the review of the front and back of the house, it’s discovered that the maintenance of the kitchen has par-cooked been clean in over a month on top of that par-cooked medium-rare chicken cross-contaminated with Brussel sprouts which cause bacteria to seep into the chicken making it inedible the and lastly blood-soaked chicken, the response from the Kirin was as if it wasn’t his problem because he doesn’t deal with the kitchen so he wouldn’t know what to look for.

After discussing the business with Kirin and his wife Gordon is convinced that maybe the restaurant is not a priority for him and you should just step way, now to be clear one of the purposes of owning your business is time freedom and with a good team the restaurant can be salvaged which is an argument that Gordon does make however he prefers that owners be more involved in the restaurant then none at all.

After the 2 Cooks are tried and tested through the new menu Gordon sides to hire a chef Ozzy who won the burger challenge.

After rocky dinner service, Gordon leaves satisfied however the update to the story is Chef Ozzy was never hired by Kirin and he made it seem like he never showed up to work the next day and Kevin followed right after unfortunately Kirin and Angelita are separated but they tell have good reviews online.

Gordon Ramsay visits Jackson Ward, Virginia to save Southern Kitchen Which is owned by a mother and daughter team Shane Robert Thomas, a black-owned business owner who has 20 years experience in sales and marketing, Her daughter Chelsea Who Was working in the education system Almost ten years before she decided to invest in her mother and kelyn.

In 2008 Shane opened up her first restaurant which was an unfortunate failure Where is Chelsea invest staying over $60,000? She decided to we’re at the restaurant. To ensure that it doesn’t fail.

Shane micromanages the kitchen and adds her own flavor to the food which is an abundance of parsley so much so that Gordon feels his bag with it.

In this episode Gordon Ramsay disguises himself as a white Madea he goes to the restaurant with a book club The food is dry and overcooked an overload of parsley and a slow cook.

During the big reveal, it shows that there is a lack of communication, ownership, and structure And mostly it’s due to the drama between the daughters. In addition to the stress that Shane and Chelsea.

With the only problems being internal rather than external Gordon Ramsay works on trying to repair the relationship within the family and assist Chef Dre To take control of his kitchen.

Gordon then meets with Chelsea to see her perspective on things and it’s revealed that she never really wanted to be in the business, but now that she is a businesswoman And has a degree in education She Has aspirations to open up her own daycare While kelyn doesn’t know what her she wants and just following in her mothers footsteps.

After talking to the kids Gordon has to now talk sense into Shane, she doesn’t take it so well and tries to wall away but with the help of Shane’s mother they managed to get through to her and after a successful evening, They’re on their way to the road of success.

Three months later The reviews have been phenomenal this episode stuck out to me because this family was so sophisticated and coachable It reminds me of when my father owned his restaurant and how he tried his best to put family first even if it was 4 hours a phone call and a game.

Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hours to hell and back seafarer family restaurant

Seafarer family restaurant Is a family-owned seafood restaurant in Manquin, Virginia 30 minutes away from Richmond and 1 hour from the beaches, while it sits on a busy highway At the time they were unable to attract local and truck population.

Manquin, Virginia is known for its war reenactments So it was pretty fun to see Gordon dress up as a British soldier During the episode He recruited season 3 winner and podcaster Chef Rock Harper, as the decoy.

The restaurant is run by 2 sisters Amber and Autumn Two sisters will have zero experience. And very little passion for the restaurant the head chef Logan Is a 20-year-old recovering narcotics user Who’s also Amber’s son. 

After the horrendous food and horrid smell coming from the kitchen, Both rock and Gordon emerged To say how bad the service was and the footage didn’t make it any better.

a couple of things that were wrong with a place was improper food storage rusted and dirty equipment and lack of accountability and Leadership Autumn one of the owners kept throwing everyone under the bus, in addition, She would put her boyfriend to work instead of her nephew she even chased out customers because they didn’t leave enough tip.

2 of the things that I took issue with this episode. It is something that happens to frequent in the work environment and it’s no cell phone use, It is the use of drugs and alcohol while on duty, I am a strong believer. You should always be sober-minded While you work However, what you choose to do after work Is your business.

The other thing is the lack of customer service Don’t chase people down for their tips That’s just rude and desperate.

Now when it comes to Seafood I’m no expert but as the video describes Seafood is a lot trickier than cooking regular food for example of shellfish need to be fresh and live Before they can be served Shellfish have to be stored in a freshwater tank wow fish Like other meat needs to be stored on ice or in a freezer if not done this way the crabs could die and decompose very quickly And there are a lot of diseases that come in fish.

When you work or on anything, you have to make sure that you have sufficient knowledge and what you’re doing. If not, then it’s not going to work out. If a person does not have the passion nor knowledge. Like a seafood restaurant, It’s going to fail. So at that point, you may want to change your menu So it better Fits your overall palette.

Has Gordon Ramsay teaches the head chef they get into the history behind his substance abuse which was hanging out with the wrong crowd and depression with the support of his Mother he is now a year sober and has found cooking to be an outlet for his recovery.


To wrap up the episode Amber takes full control of the restaurant While her sister Autumn takes a backseat They change the name of the restaurant to Halterman eatery the dinner service was strong and chef Rock becomes a mentor to Logan.

3 months later They’re still doing okay From the reviews I’ve read Rock is still working with Logan and Autumn might be back.

In conclusion, it’s important to whether it’s management business or supervision to know your craft, work with your team and delegate your staff accordingly.

24 hours to hell and back Botto’s Italian line

In today’s episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hours to hell and back we are introduced to a family business with ties to a Sausage Factory and supermarket this is what we call a symbiotic Cooperative business called Botto’s Italian line in Swedesboro New Jersey.

1411 Kings Highway Swedesboro, NJ

The restaurant is made up of 4 Brothers Vincent and Dominic who owned a Sausage Factory, Robert bot to who owns both a supermarket and Henry who is also the executive chef, sadly due to the death of their father things haven’t been the same and the lack of customers are only adding to the stress.

At the start of the episode, Gordon Ramsay disguises himself as a Godfather invites 2 lovely Italian women he also reserved a wedding party to divert attention off him after eating the most disastrous food I’ve ever seen his assistant reveals him.

After the display of the kitchen, he goes into the stock meeting and one thing that is apparent is the lack of responsibility and blame towards Henry, Robert isn’t pleased with Gordon Ramsay criticism and proceeded to throw Henry on the bus Gordon Ramsay doesn’t care about that nor is he willing to listen they proceed on to the kitchen.

As he goes down the line of everything wrong with The food he asks the important question as to how often the hood of the stove has cleaned the friar still on as he pulls down to see the cleanliness of the hood and a whole flop of grease yours down into the frier igniting a kitchen fire.

Side note it is important to cleanout
Your kitchen hood on a month to prevent Kitchen fires and ensure a safe and clean working environment in addition in order to prevent contamination is important to rotate your product the FILO rule first in last out.

After the kitchen incident, Gordon sits down with their brother Dominic to discuss how Robert’s Behavior is affecting the restaurant and he agrees that to hold him accountable.

Henry and Gordon work on a new menu, and during there, conversation Henry talks about his relationship with his father and how he put him through school where he got his degree in Hotel and restaurant management his dream, however, was to be the front of the house but his father put him to cook instead which Gordon Ramsay takes notice after they finish with the menu they sit down and talk to Robert and Robert ultimately agrees to step back and let Henry take control.

After 24 hours the restaurant is back open again and they have a successful dinner service 3 months later they are doing terrific and Henry has excelled exponentially.

In conclusion, it’s important to whether it’s management business or supervision to work with your team and delegate your staff accordingly Let each worker find their voice and expertise.

That’s all I have for you today check out my like a boss review if you haven’t seen it I have a non-spoiler review as well
