Information
First edition, first print hardback of HUMBLE PIE, by Gordon Ramsay and published by HarperCollins Publishers, London, 2006. Signed and dedicated by Ramsay on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean grey boards with yellow lettering on the spine, a little colour fading to board edges as is common) with very slight wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

"Everyone thinks they know the real Gordon Ramsay: rude, loud, pathologically driven, stubborn as hell. But this is his real story...

For the first time Gordon tells the full inside story of how he became the world’s most famous and infamous chef: his difficult childhood, his brother’s heroin addiction, his failed first career as a footballer, his fanatical pursuit of gastronomic perfection and his TV persona — all the things that have made him the celebrated culinary talent and media powerhouse that he is today.

In Humble Pie Gordon talks frankly about his tough and emotional childhood, including his father's alcoholism and violence and the effect on his relationships with his mother and siblings. His rootless upbringing saw him moving from house to house followed by bailiffs and debtors as his father lurched from one failed job to another.

He recounts his short-lived career as a footballer, how the whole family moved to Scotland when he was signed by Glasgow Rangers at the age of 15 and how he coped when, just two years later, injury dashed his hopes.

Having dropped out of football Gordon looked around for another career and, much to his father's disgust, went into catering.

Gordon explains how his career developed from there: his time in Paris where he got a job without knowing any French and made his mark, leading to his collection of Michelin-starred restaurants.

Then there is the fame that has come with his craft. Gordon talks frankly about 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.

299 pages with over 20 full page glossy colour photographs.
