Tomorrow evening, Gordon Ramsay will be back doing a live cook-along with UK viewers and showing those at home how to whip up a tasty three-course meal in real time. Of course, the famous chef won’t offering up anything remotely vegetarian — but in this cryptic response, he says that he doesn’t necessarily have anything against them either. Really?
“We’ll definitely, definitely not be doing a vegetarian option,” he said. “We’ll be glamorizing vegetarians in terms of putting alternatives on there but, honestly, along the hour it goes quickly, you’d be surprised. We have vegetarian menus in all our restaurants, my gripe was never against the vegetarians, I was just trying to move things on a bit and become a little bit more exciting with veg. My frustration years ago was against chefs, how they don’t cook for vegetarians.”
Meh? Isn’t this the guy that humorously quipped he would “electrocute” his kids if they ever came home and announced they were vegetarian? Is it all part of a television meat-eating character image? Puzzling.
