Gordon Ramsay’s latest television series for Channel 4 in the UK has him attempting to teach prisoners how to cook at HMP Brixton.
Gordon is looking to help with prisoners rehabilitation by teaching them how to cook.
He shared some of the more harrowing experiences which included having to break up a fight between two inmates.
He admitted that it was nothing like a kitchen brawl in the Savoy.
Ramsay said: ‘Prisons are very intimidating places – every two or three metres there are bars.”
“There was one incident where a guy lunged to head butt another inmate, who was arguing over sauce.”
“The general consensus of a meal is they douse it in chilli flakes, HP sauce, ketchup and make this concoction.”
“Someone forgot to bring someone’s sachets in and that was that.”
“I was standing close by one bloke with another opposite me, and then this guy lunged over and went to head butt him. I had to sort it out.”
In an interview with the Sun he added: “That is how fragile things are when they argue over nothing.”
“They are deprived of everything, for obvious reasons, so a little incident becomes a massive one.”
“I was always on edge when it did kick off because you can’t get to the situation readily, it’s not like a kitchen at Claridge’s or the Savoy.”
His wife, Tana Ramsay, was reportedly so worried about Gordon entering a prison environment that she made him take self-defence classes.
Gordan said: “Tana was very nervous. She insisted on some self-defence classes where I learnt how to grapple properly. I thought, ‘Jeez, here we go’ until Will Usher, the guy who was training me, went for me, then I knew I had to stop d**king around.”
“He is a small guy but he put me on my back. He flattened me. That is when I knew I had to pay attention. He showed me what you can do with your elbow. I learnt how powerful they are. That gave me a lot more confidence.”
There was plenty of other drama during filming when a missing potato peeler forced prison authorities to send HM Prison Brixton into lock down The lock down lasted for 2 hours as prison officials searched for the missing potato peeler which could be used as a weapon
