Gordon Ramsay's mentor/nemesis Marco Pierre White, both the first bad boy celebrity chef and the youngest person to have three Michelin stars, has a new memoir out this coming week, The Devil in the Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness and the Making of a Great Chef. His interview with Josh "Mr. Cutlets" Ozersky at New York Magazine's Grub Street stirs up all sorts of delicious questions, like: Will he be opening a restaurant in the U.S.? Will it be in New York, or Vegas? Is he going into partnership wth Mario Batali?
Me, I love all this speculation—considering Ramsay's first foray into the States was found to be so uninspired that he fired his chef de cuisine, a longtime employee and collaborator, it would be a pretty amazing volley across the bow if White opened here and did well, especially if he does go as low-rent as he hints at in the interview.
