Have Some Breasts with Your Television

For the last several Friday nights H and I have been recording a show called Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Live. It’s a live television show where Chef Gordon Ramsay cooks a three course meal in front of a live studio audience with a celebrity guest cooking along with him. There is very little that the three of us will agree to sit down and watch together except maybe Malcolm in the Middle re-runs but A sat and watched it with us last night because she loves Gok Wan, the celebrity guest. Most of the time we don’t recognize who the celebrity guests are since we are still learning about pop culture here.

We have yet to try and make one of the meals he prepares. We just think it’s a pretty entertaining show. During the program he checks in via webcam with people all over the country who are cooking with him. He also does other segments like learning how to make the perfect cocktail or recipe challenges with other chefs. Tonight as he went to talk to someone in Wiltshire cooking along with him the woman, probably in her mid to late 50s was standing in her kitchen topless. She is a naturalist and when the camera panned to her guests, they were all naked too. She did put an apron on to cook. Not only would American prime time television not show breasts, but if they did they would probably be of the perfect, surgically enhanced variety.

That sounds like a fun show...I cannot stand GR on Hell's Kitchen, and half the time I can't stand the so-called chefs either. On the other hand, I like "The F Word," and was astonished to find myself thinking, "damn, GR is HOT!," when he changes clothes in the opening credits...these are the times that I really wonder about my sanity. : )
