CELEB CHEFS

Gordon Ramsay in Hot Water

Fresh direct? Eh, not so much at celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's London restaurants. Turns out meals at his gastropubs and bistros are "prepared at a centralized 'food factory,'" according to the Evening Standard. The British paper reports: "Dishes such as pork belly, coq au vin, braised pig cheeks and orange and bitter chocolate tart are prepared in bulk before chefs put them in plastic bags and dispatch them across London." The news is certain to tarnish his reputation and fuel critics, who have argued that he's "spread himself too thin." The pitfalls of success!
