    While watching Gordon Ramsay on boiling point running his first solo restaurant, during service before he sends out the first course, he will ask for something that sounds like "new scale". He will say "fire new scale away". I tried looking this up but I do not know the spelling, anyone know this term and its meaning?

    I'm going to guess it's "amuse gueule" which is the same thing as an amuse bouche or a canape. It's usually one (or more) courses served in fancy restaurants to whet the appetite and buy time to prepare the food. 

    The way he says it--he probable talks very fast and it might sound something like "moosgel"
