A Hands-Free Hack For Peeling Hard-Boiled Eggs

Gordan Ramsay Goes a Hunting

Lately I've been trying to be more aware of my food chain. In fact, one of my goals for 2007 is to catch, kill and gut my own fish - Jimmy thinks I'm crazy, but I really want to do it. I think it would be a good reminder of the whole circle food chain thing. Also, fish are slimy and blech, but I'd probably have an easier time with a fish than I would, oh say a deer (mmm... venison).

Gordon Ramsay on the other hand, apparently doesn't have a hard time at all. In an upcoming episode of his show, The F Word (BBC America carries it, but is behind a season), Ramsay proves why he is the man most British men admire by hunting a deer. The episode hasn't aired yet, so I don't know if he actually succeeded, but I do know that someone did because later he carries the deer carcass through his restaurant. I guess the special that night was venison?

I agree, I wouldn't want to see that. I'm pretty sure everyone is aware of the food chain and where their food is coming from. No need to carry it in front of everyone. He seems a bit arrogant to me. Very unsanitary!

I think it's fine to hunt if you're going to eat it, but how disgusting to carry it through a restaurant. 1)People are eating and don't want to look their dinner in the eye. 2)How unsanitary!

No I didn't know that. I just think he's full of it. His head chef overdosed on coke (and died) a few years back. He said he didn't know his chef had a problem. Jesus he pushed the man hard. He knew but he chose to ignore it (for michelin stars sake). I just think that is really poor. I don't respect him at all.

He does it to show off that he knows so much about animals. He probably doesn't even know how to identify a good dear from a bad dear.

Yeah, I don't know if it is a great idea if he lugs it through the restaurant. That is kinda yuck.

I definitely wouldn't want to be trying to enjoy my dinner and in walks the chef with the catch of the day thrown over his shoulder.

Ya gotta eat. As long as you eat what you hunt I'm cool with that. It's people that hunt merely for the sport that sicken me.

Humans have moved beyond the food chain.

sorry when i say most chefs (i meant chefs in high end restaurants in london and celebrity chefs). I thought I shoud make that absolutely clear.

The restaurants he did try to help went out of business. I wonder why? God he is full of it.

This man will do anything for good PR. He was very jealous of Jamie cause Jamie (who has won numerous awards on telly) is very popular over here and I heard in the US also. Gordon only became interested in animals because it shows he cares (He doesn't give a shit about his suppliers, that I can promise). Sorry but Gordon is a fake. Most chefs in UK don't like him. They think he's funny and (frankly hedious).
