Gordon Ramsay & The F Word.Hypocrit?

#1
Well,
I have been a fan of his for years but recently he,imho,is starting to slide down the same path as those chef's he slag's off.

Take the new series of The F Word,the format's getting old now so to be different,he's looking for the best British Resturant.

EXCEPT that,so far,he has NOT featured a BRITISH resturant,

Indian,Chinese,Thai ect so far on this series but not one BRITISH resturant despite him being a 'exponent' of British food.

So why has he not done so as yet?

Is it because he does'nt think British food such as Cowl,Irish Stew,Hotpot ect are'nt as exciting as other nations dishes?

Or have we lost our national food heritage?

Opinions Chaps?

Regards,
Spike.

Spike, TBH, you try to find a British restaaurant selling British food, the High St is cluttered with Chinkys, Indians, Thai, Italians and Greeks even Nepalese, but not too many proper British restaurants.

But what about pub grub? My local's do great British food,all locally sourced.

Most pubs belong to chains eg Wetherspoons, Goose, Yates's, all standard menus, all standard ingredients, plus pub food is hardly pukka restaurant style food, there are the exceptions of course, but few and far between.

But this is just the point - they should be recognized and supported.

On the other hand I remember him starting a 'Campaign for real gravy' or somesuch on an earlier program...?

i'd quite like a few clean, comforatble, well -run, cheerful canteen style restaurants - obviously with good quality food ,generous servings but done simply and without too much pretention. Tasty healthy well sourced food cooked often in quite large batches - as - as anyone who can cook will tell you this makes food taste better. Specials and seasonal food for both health, taste, enironmental and cost reasons.
Agreed. Something but with good food: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Restaurant

Schools should also teach the recipes served there to all pupils, say once a week. Hotpot, shepherd's pie, Irish stew &c. Food is a vital (if underappreciated) aspect of national identity, and national identity is, contrary to romantic assumptions, initially more often inculcated than inherited.
