Brian Ferguson in Chef, Food, Food, Restaurant

I was walking through London’s SoHo on a day off while doing interviews during the Olympics. I was just walking around and I saw this restaurant Escargot that Marco Pierre White owns. Being a big chef groupie I stopped and took a picture. I first heard about Marco Pierre White in Bill Bufford’s book Heat. He was recounting a story of Mario Batalli working for White and getting so pissed off at him he threw a bunch of salt into his sauces and walking out. If you want to see a video with a young Gordon Ramsay as a kitchen slave this one is priceless.
