TV chef Gordon Ramsay is back in Andalucia filming Kitchen Nightmares, this time ‘effing’ and ‘blinding’ in the charming town of Gaucin.
It is not clear which restaurant the Michelin-starred chef is running the rule over yet, however.
Ramsay, who overhauls menus, decor and even the staff on the expletive-ridden Channel 4 show, previously filmed an episode at Jack’s Chicken Shack in Fuengirola.
“He came in a lot and he certainly made a difference,” owner Pat Diaz, from London, told the Olive Press.
In just four short days, the Scottish superchef – worth an estimated £70million – transformed the diner, and his first move was to get completely rid of the clutter.
“My husband is a hoarder and he ordered us to clear the storeroom of rubbish. Literally put it all out on the street and made us sort it into three piles, ‘keep’, ‘charity’ and ‘rubbish’,” explained Diaz, 68, who has run restaurants on the coast with husband Jack, 72, for 27 years.
In 2007, Ramsay filmed an episode at Nerja’s La Parra de Burriana.
He helped owner Davy, who was about €100,000 in debt, turn the struggling business around. But on a return visit in 2012 he found that the restaurant had closed.
