Not quite a warts and all autobiography but itâs quite revealing of the man we all love to hate. The man behind the rude and rather obnoxious exterior is possibly a more endearing figure than you might think at first glance, so if you even have a passing interest in cooking or indeed the chef, or you know someone who does then Humble Pie is well worth adding to your list this Christmas.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Humble Pie by Gordon Ramsay

This is Gordon Ramsayâs autobiography – the first time he has told the full story of how he became the worldâs most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brotherâs heroin addiction and his failed first career as a footballer: all of these things have made him the celebrated culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today. Gordon talks frankly about:

• his tough childhood: his fatherâs alcoholism and violence and the effects on his relationships with his mother and siblings

• his first career as a footballer: how the whole family moved to Scotland when he was signed by Glasgow Rangers at the age of fifteen, and how he coped when his career was over due to injury just three years later

• his brotherâs heroin addiction.

• Gordonâs early career: learning his trade in Paris and London; how his career developed from there: his time in Paris under Albert Roux and his seven Michelin-starred restaurants.

• kitchen life: Gordon spills the beans about life behind the kitchen door, and how a restaurant kitchen is run in Anthony Bourdain-style.

• and how he copes with the impact of fame on himself and his family: his television career, the rapacious tabloids, and his own drive for success.

About the Author

Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management and his dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of world's leading chefs. In 1993 Gordon became chef of Aubergine in London and within three years was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Gordon set up his own restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world - three Michelin stars. One of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three stars, Gordon was awarded an OBE in 2006 for services to the industry. Now internationally renowned, Gordon has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to LA.
