4. Episode Four

Can food affect a man's fertility? Currently there's speculation about a general decline in the sperm count and whether it can be linked to diet. Gordon blames his own low sperm count on the fact that chefs are constantly exposed to high levels of heat during long hours in a kitchen environment. He enlists the help of a fertility expert and a clinical embryologist to see whether they support his theory and to advise on how men can help prevent problems with their sperm. Plus top model Penny Lancaster comes for dinner and tells Gordon about her very fertile relationship with Rod Stewart; their baby is due in less than three weeks. 'We did actually freeze his sperm in case there were going to be any problems' she reveals. 'We were at home, you know, intimately. And then I rushed down in the Ferrari with my handbag and the little vial next to it.'

I love this show and catch it on BBCA whenever I can (I'm watching season 3 on my DVR at this very moment). Here you can see the real Gordon Ramsay at work with real people. Yes, he's demanding in the kitchen but it's not the over dramatized Fox version we see in the US.

The F Word (which is Food, not that other four letter f word he likes) is a variety show set in The F Word restaurant. Every week he invites a brigade of amateur cooks to serve 50 people each weekend, then rates them based on how many customers pay at the end of the day.

Throughout the cooking service there are segments that include: a run through of the recipes being cooked, a check-in with a British celebrity guest, making fun of celebrity chefs, alternative food sources (e.g. haggis, squirrel, horse milk), teaching busy people to cook, celebrity cooking challenge and other food related topics.

I especially like the honesty from a culinary point of view, particularly the segments about where our food comes from, something we Americans aren't always so keen to know about. In Season 1, Gordon takes the viewer through the experience of raising his own turkeys and then processing them for a meal in his kitchen. You get to meet his wife and four kids in the process too. Season 2 follows pigs and Season 3 follows sheep.

Being a program from the UK, they do show a lot more than most American shows (e.g. during the butchering process), but if you're willing to learn a bit more about your food and would like to see more of the real Gordon Ramsay, give this series a chance. If you're not sure, find someone who has BBCA and you can catch the occasional re-run or new Season 3 episodes (Winter 2009).

BTW, I ate at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay on Royal Hospital Road (his three Michelin Star flagship in London) in October. It was most excellent, though the weak dollar was a bit of a bummer.

Love him or hate him, you can't deny that Gordon has a real passion for food. This series, in my opinion, gives viewers a better opportunity to see how strongly Gordon takes his commitment to good food. Quality is integral to fresh, well-produced fruit, vegetables and meat and I think it's a very positive thing to know exactly what we as consumers and home cooks should be looking for as we make a stronger effort to eat better, support local economies and commit to a better standard of living.

In this particular series, Gordon (together with his children) raise turkeys and garden veggies. At the same time, he starts his controversial Get Women Back Into the Kitchen campaign with several celebrity guests (including Joan Collins, infamous in Ramsay's backstory as she was kicked out of one of his restaurants together with a warring food critic). He's got an excellent recurring segment in which he shows you how to prepare the very meals being served in the show's restaurant.

The only thing that I disliked about the DVD itself was the editing of Gordon's other favorite 'f' word. Anyone familiar with Ramsay, his shows or his personality would know before purchasing any of his DVDs that this word is an integral part of his lexicon. The edits are annoying and unnecessary, in my opinion.

Gordon Ramsay is a way different person in the UK than in the US. If you'd like to purchase this hoping that he'll call someone's signature dish "F****ng Dreadful," this is not for you. This show is for chefs and people passionate about food. It is very educational, funny at times, and very interesting. It's my favorite show of all time and you should catch it on TV (BBC America or Channel 4 in the UK) before you decide to buy it.

I love to see this side of the Hell's Kitchen Gordon and the Kitchen Nightmares Gordon - this is the family man Gordon - the dad, the husband, the friend. You see the vulnerable Gordon, the funny Gordon. You also get good cooking ideas and with this show you actually see Gordon support his staff of the day when he feels the critisism of the diners is too harsh.

FOOD!!! This series is highly entertaining and informative however I live in the US and this series is from the UK thus I am not familiar with the guests of honor and celebrities. Often he uses ingredients that require a little Googling to figure out what he means. But none the less it's a great show where Chef Ramsay bares many of his personal secrets.

If you enjoy cooking and learning about the different aspects of cooking, you will like this series. Yes, he swears, he's not all hyped up like they made him on Kitchen Nightmares. This series shows the better side of Gordon.

I love Hotel Hell, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, etc, but this show just didn't really 'do' it for me. The first episode I watched had to do with getting Britain's women 'back in the kitchen', with the implied 'where they belong' joke/attitude. I can totally agree with people needing to cook more and eat junk food and fast food less, but not the way this was presented in the show. I also watched about the raising turkeys with the kids so they know where their food comes from. Well, I can't imagine how traumatized I'd have been as a child to get a bunch of turkeys, NAME them and treat them like pets, and then have to kill, cook and eat my pets. I know where my food comes from, but I generally don't name my food before I eat it. I just felt bad for the kids. the cursing is bleeped, which surprised me for getting it on instant--so parts of the show are so bleeped you can't understand what anyone is saying. All said and done, I enjoy Ramsey's shows, but this one just doesn't really do it for me.
