Wolfgang is mean to Mariam
I have heard chef’s aren’t the nicest people to work with but he seems unnecessarily mean to his team. He barely knows anything about the products yet treats the staff like they are idiots. I will never buy a product with his name on it based on his behavior. I just hope Mariam and the other staff members get paid well enough to put up with him.
My Observations … I think that Wolfgang and Miriann have a great relationship and he has always respected her and treated her kindly.
Wolfgang was obviously a little stressed during this last visit. I think it was because a few months ago, his Blender did sell as well as he hoped and this time his oven wasn’t selling as well. He was tense and though he attempted to pretend it was okay, it showed.
On Saturday night or Sunday, Wolfgang might have said or done something to offend Miriann because she was ‘pouting’ and seemed a little upset. Wolfgang was trying to ‘fix it’ with her and bring her back in the fold. Seemingly he did fix it and she did come back around on Sunday.
Robin and Marlo hosted his Sunday afternoon/evening shows very well and Sales were popping. Wolfgang and Miriann relaxed and things started to return to normal.
(Wolfgang did not get off to a good start with his TS. Suzanne is a good host but she does not host Cooking shows very well.)
We all have habits and Wolfgang’s habits are a mess. He is too old and too rich to change them. Overall he apears to be a pretty good guy and most of his products are great. So enjoy the shows, buy some of his products and avoid his habits. Also if you ever eat at his restaurants … find out if the boss has been in the kitchen.
WP was horrible especially on his final presentation. I felt immense sadness for the host. It was clearly intentional his behavior. He was even rude to the
assisting chef. And the eating and picking the food… Yuck. Needs to be addressed . Poor display for HSN and WP.
I lost respect for WP some time ago. His manners do leave a lot to be desired, and he needs to learn some basic hygiene in the kitchen. Wiping his nose with the same towel he uses around food is just disgusting. Sticking his fingers in the food can also ruin a person’s appetite. He interrupts when others are talking and is just generally rude. On the other hand, his products are quite good and I do have a lot of them, but won’t purchase another thing of his until he cleans up his act. If you really want to know what WP is like, just google why he chose the name “Puck.” It is also a reflection on his true character.
