I don't have access to most of the stations needed for that, I'm  
afraid, and anything I see with Gordon Ramsey makes me want to just  
smack somebody in the face, a la Mr Bean or Terrance and Phillip  
slapping Brooke Shields in the face in the South Park movie. Clashing  
colors and flavors, pointless, badly-prepared and deservedly  
unappreciated risotto, and, of course, the obligatory Bleep  
Wellington. Three-star animal fodder. Yawn.

I liked the Urban Legend going around the British tabloids saying  
that Ramsey's hand-fed baby lambs had all been eaten by an Alien  
Black Cat, though...

Unfortunately, we were too late for the Oldest Established Permanent  
Floating Chinese Seafood and Produce Market in Woodside, so no crabs  
for lunch. Ah, well, soft shells are out of season anyway (at least  
they should be...)
