Gordon Ramsay's knives get a second job intimidating his daughter's boyfriends
Gordon admitted he will, jokingly, use his knives to intimidate his daughter's boyfriends when they come over for dinner.
Imagine, for a minute, dating the daughter of a superstar-class of celebrity chef. You know he can cook. You know he's got friends in high - and worse, lower - places. He's got the knife skills to fillet you if you ever wrong his daughter and apparently he will tell you!
According to Insider.com, Gordon isn't the pushover when a new boy gets dragged to dinner by one of his daughters. He recently admitted in an interview with Extra's Mark Wright, that some old-fashioned brandishing happens when the filming crew has left for the night.
Mr. Ramsay admittedly will, "Stand there, about to chop onions and stare at them with a knife and go, 'You are not going upstairs, you little s---,'" As well as, "You are not going to go upstairs and rehearse that English exam. You are f------ staying downstairs. What the f--- would you like to eat and what time do you have to be f------ kicked out of here."
Naturally, the four-letter vocabulary is a necessity, even if you're not the king of profane cooking - my opinion of course. I was once threatened in a similar way as a young man: the lack of profanity didn't exactly drive home the message, but the 8" curved knife and the ornate handle were clear enough - 'hurt my daughter and I'll use this to cut you'. Message received, sir. I will be a gentleman!
