In this reality series, Chef Gordon Ramsay travels to troubled restaurants to help their owners from having to close their doors for the last time. Working with a restaurant’s staff, the Chef has one week to take the restaurant from failing to fabulous.
Each episode features a different restaurant and a different set of problems and Ramsay helps restaurant owners diagnose just what is keeping their establishments from success. He encounters such issues as uncooperative staff members, stubborn chefs, frozen food, dirty kitchens, and overly complex menus.

Love him or loathe him, Ramsay is passionate about the food industry and demonstrates that he wants those who share that passions to thrive.
