I really like Gordon Ramsay. Anyone who uses industrial strength expletives so liberally is okay in my book.
I watched Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares yesterday, that’s the one with the Soul Food cook Momma Cherri, and it was easily the best one that I’ve seen. Hell, Gordon actually ate everything on his plate.
I bought his book, Gordon Ramsay Makes It Easy, and I was flicking through it this morning looking for something to cook for tea and I came across this great line.
First, put the lobsters in the freezer for about 30 minutes to make them sleepy.
The recipe is for lobster thermidor and top of the ingredients list is ‘3 live medium lobsters’. Funnily enough not the dish I shall be preparing this evening.
