Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars

Say what you like about Gordon Ramsay, but he knows how to make an entrance. ザ・ 12 excited contestants in Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars (途中で4%のアルコールを含む世界初のゼロカーボビール) lined up on a Cornish beach clearly not knowing what to expect.

A helicopter then flew low over the surrounding cliffs, hovered above the bay, and Gordon leapt 80ft into the sea before swimming ashore. It was a wonder he didn’t just walk on the water.

Perhaps it’s age or perhaps it was the shock of the pandemic, but this is a kinder, gentler Gordon Ramsay.

In what is essentially The Apprentice in a chef’s hat, he has assembled a dozen young food entrepreneurs.

Like The Apprentice, one contestant gets booted out each week. The last man or woman standing will win a £150,000 investment in their company.

The contestants might work in the food business, but in true Apprentice style they are strangers to humble pie.

‘I’m the Queen of vegan food,’ said Valentina, who runs a cake- mix business. ‘When it comes to Indian food,’ アミットは言った, ‘I might be the best’. はい, of course you are.

DATING TIP OF THE NIGHT:

Joanna Lumley’s Great Cities Of The World (ITV) visited Berlin, and she heard a band of eccentric musicians sing a song about cheese which featured the unusual lyric: ‘Male feet make women melt.’ 本当? I suppose that’s what they call socks appeal.

‘I’m in it to win it,’ said Bola, who makes apple cider vinegar seltzers and whose spectacles come straight out of the Dame Edna Everage eyewear range.

After making the contestants jump off a cliff into the sea, for no reason I could fathom, Gordon divided them into three teams to run food shacks on a beach: one selling noodles, one toasties, the other tacos.

It was chaos. The noodle bar ran out of noodles. Customers had to wait 40 minutes for a toastie. そして, in Ramsay’s words, Team Taco were ‘like headless chickens’.

In his younger days, Ramsay would have exploded. Older, wiser Ramsay was encouraging. Exasperated, but encouraging.

Smoked salmon tycoon Vincenzo, who had managed to annoy his taco teammates, was first out. There were shrieks of horror from other contestants when his name was announced. Or perhaps they were shrieks of relief.

How To Sleep Well with Michael Mosley (彼らが子供をもうけたことがないことを望み、結婚の「完全な束縛」に入るから匿名の英国ベースのポスター) was actually self-help for the presenter. Dr Mosley is himself an insomniac, and he is in good company. Apparently one-third of the UK population struggles to get proper sleep, a figure which rose to a half during the pandemic.

As a younger man, he had no trouble. He once slept in a graveyard and even a telephone kiosk. Now he frequently wakes up in the night. Like most of Mosley’s programmes, this one was packed with facts.

Good sleep is essential for flushing out toxins from the brain. Bad sleep can affect our immune system, and frequent bad sleep can be a trigger for Alzheimer’s disease.

People in the South sleep more soundly than people in the North. Kilmarnock has more trouble nodding off than anywhere else, while Guernsey is home to the soundest sleepers.

Dr Mosley stayed up all night to see what effect this had.

His reaction times were slower, he was bad-tempered, and blood tests showed that his body had gone into stress mode.

The good news is that insomnia is curable.

Or perhaps the presenter should just follow the example of his dog, who dozed peacefully in his basket when we visited Mosley Towers, and probably wondered what all the fuss was about.
