Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay says British restaurants should be fined if they serve fruit and vegetables which are not in season.Where on earth does anyone like a chef get the idea that we want to hear their crazy ideas on what legislation is required regarding menus…oh:
He told the BBC that fruit and vegetables should be locally-sourced and only on menus when in season.
Mr Ramsay said he had already spoken to Prime Minister Gordon Brown about outlawing out-of-season produce.Doesn’t the PM have anything better to do with his time, like perhaps trying to figure out why, in a popularity contest, he’d lose out to Josef Fritzl?
"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."God forbid we become ‘lazy eaters’ following ‘trends and fads’ promoted by….err….chefs!
Ramsay, whose London restaurants include Petrus, The Savoy Grill and Maze, added that Britain had become a nation of lazy eaters, following trends and fads, rather than substance.
Look, idiot, if you don’t want to serve out-of-season- vegetables in your overpriced, trendy cafeteria, then don’t! If customers are in favour, they keep coming. If they really want Kenyan strawberries and winter asparagus, they’ll go somewhere else. That is why restaurants exist, isn’t it – to bring in the customers?
