24 hours to hell and back episode 2

In episode 2 Chef Gordon goes to the Jersey Shore to help a fancy restaurant called blend on Main in Manasquan, New Jersey which is co-owned and operated by chef Lou Smith.

it used to receive it’s the best season during the summer months when people are on vacation however 10 months of the year it was struggling so just get by since the episode already has been doing a lot better.

During the start of the episode, Chef Gordon Ramsay explains the overworked father-of-three has been trying to juggle the business and his family life since he’s opened up the restaurant, his frustration has caused him to lash out constantly at his employees to the point where some of them have walked out on him his anger has also been a major issue than his marriage.

This is something that I can relate to being a workaholic like my father who is 48 when he died of a massive heart attack spent 22 hours of his days running a restaurant with my stepmother in the East Tremont section of the Bronx.

Due to the discovery, Gordon Ramsay on the shore Gordon enlists his friend and fellow Chef James Avery,
Chef Avery disguises himself as a pilot with Botox, while Gordon Ramsay dresses up as a cameraman

At the restaurant, Gordon Ramsay takes his camera into the kitchen and finds Lou wiping down his face and the plate with the same rag and after the two go out with the big reveal you can see the issues with the restaurant poor food handling, rotten food and harsh treatment towards employees and his wife.

After the guests leave Gordon decides to spend some time with the staff to get their Insight on what is wrong with the state of the restaurant and they confirmed that it is due to the negative energy that he throws out into the atmosphere which is a factor of being overworked and overall stress of possibly losing his restaurant.

After sitting down with the staff Gordon sets his sights on Lou who doesn’t see that the mounting pressure that he puts on himself and his staff will eventually lead to his death and loss of everything and everyone and his life that is the most important which makes sense you have to have trust with your employees and you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of everything else

Later on, he starts working with the cooks on the new menu he eventually shows Lou that she can trust his staff and if that does a phenomenal job showing him that he can trust them I got the job done.

With 24 hours of hell and the staff are ready for the relaunch of Blend on main the doors are reopened and it is a complete success with a few minor hiccups, it takes heed to Ramsey’s advice and changes his tone with his wife and his crew, 3 months later business is booming and everything worked out for the better.

There are several ways for a business to improve all year round especially being in a location such as the Jersey Shore.

  • Inviting Meetups
  • Renting out your venue for corporate and political events
  • Using Food Service apps such as seamless, Uber Eats door dash, and Postmates to increase sales
  • Using social media
  • Bring customers in from the streets
  • Group on
  • Publicity

How to properly prepare food

When preparing any type of food it is important to note I can’t believe I’m saying this the area has to be clean and sanitized.

Which is why I find it shocking to see a popular franchise such as Popeyes preparing chicken over a trash can due to lack of equipment.

Shortly after Popeyes was provided with an extra table where they can prepare food properly https://www.tmz.com/2019/11/11/popeyes-employee-makes-chicken-sandwiches-over-trash-can/

This is not the first time Popeyes has been featured in kitchen controversy in January 2017 a video surfaced on WorldstarHipHop featuring a group of employees preparing chicken on the floor as a prank don’t know if they actually serve the chicken but they were playing with food probably because it was slow.

But since we’re at this point again let me go over some key points when it comes to preparing food

  1. Wash your hands
  2. Make sure you’re preparing on a flat clean and sanitized surface
  3. Wear gloves
  4. Wear hairnets on your head and on your beard
  5. Protect yourself from hot surfaces and popping oil
  6. Make sure to keep ingredients that like fish and nuts separate from other Foods this is to prevent cross-contamination
  7. Keep cleaning supplies above the floors
  8. If you’re bored do something productive clean the kitchen promote your job or make yourself something to eat

Update they got an extra table

Safety cleaning

A Buffalo Wild Wings chemical spill leaves one dead and 13 hospitalized after an employee was mopping up chemicals with a cleaning solution.


It’s important to note Before cleaning up any spill it’s important to know what you’re cleaning and proper labels so it doesn’t cause a chemical reaction that can lead to irritated airways, respiratory problems, or burns to skin, eyes, throat, nose, and lungs.


Some gases are created from combined cleaning products that could cause damage to the nervous system, eyes, lungs, skin, liver, kidneys, and even death, this is why every restaurant or business must have an MSDS inventory according to OSHA regulations


Dealing with chemical spills

  • Immediately alert area occupants and supervisor, and evacuate the area, if necessary.
  • If there is a fire or medical attention is needed, contact Public Safety at 609-258-3333.
  • Attend to any people who may be contaminated. Contaminated clothing must be removed immediately and the skin flushed with water for no less than fifteen minutes. Clothing must be laundered before reuse. See First Aid for Chemical Exposures for more information.
  • If a volatile, flammable material is spilled, immediately warn everyone, control sources of ignition and ventilate the area

In closing while it’s very important as a business owner to make sure that all of your employees are trained properly handling chemicals such as cleaning supplies and any other food and safety protocols.

Dealing with guest accommodation

When dealing in the area of fine dining it is extremely important to accommodate everyone accordingly while there are some requests that cannot be fulfilled nor should be fulfilled there a ways to go around doing so.

A perfect example of this would be Buffalo Wild Wings where a group of 18 guests came into the restaurant to celebrate a birthday/celebration after a Junior basketball tournament The Host who attempted to ensure that the group had a pleasant experience and attempted not to seat the group of 18 near a regular guests who had unsavory preferences and knew that things would get really ugly had sat them near his table after they were seated shortly after they were asked to move their table to accommodate the regular this indeed was a bad move.

It doesn’t matter how much a person tips or how regularly they come, if you give in to one person demand they will always ask for more if there is no other table for them to sit except for there then the customer has to deal with his/her grievance or he or she can leave or be moved to another table its easier to move 2 than 18.

In closing if I was the host knowing the situation I wouldn’t ask about race sexual orientation or religion of the customer, what I would have done instead was fined another seating arrangement if that was the only area that had the longest table I would then advise regular of the situation I would offer him another seat somewhere else he can grin and bear, or get his order to go.
