GLOBAL CHEF WANTS LOCAL FOOD

Sweary chef Gordon Ramsay is just as bossy off camera:

Mr Ramsay said he had already spoken to Prime Minister Gordon Brown about outlawing out-of-season produce.

When winter asparagus is outlawed, only outlaws will have winter asparagus.

He says it would cut carbon emissions as less food would be imported and also lead to improved standards of cooking.

Here’s another idea: stop importing foreign television programs.

The TV chef said it was “fundamentally important” for chefs to provide locally-sourced food.

The same presumably applies to locally-sourced television. Ramsay’s UK-sourced program is shown in Australia, the US, Canada ...

“I don’t want to see asparagus on in the middle of December. I don’t want to see strawberries from Kenya in the middle of March. I want to see it home grown.”

Ramsay owns a Ferrari; a curious choice for an apparent anti-globalist.

“There should be stringent laws, licensing laws, to make sure produce is only used in season and season only,” he said.

The Green Team’s final tip is just for you, Gordon.

“If we don’t restrict our movements within this industry of seasonal-produce only, then the whole thing will spiral out of control.”

Strawberries in March. Why, it’s absolute chaos!

UPDATE. Ramsay is a food fraud:

[Gordon Ramsay] fails quite brazenly to practise what he preaches in his own restaurants, which serve food from thousands of miles away.
