The F- Word Is Here!


Introducing one of my all time favorite TV show on Gordon Ramsay is The F-Word is a British food magazine and cooking show featuring chef Gordon Ramsay. The programme covers a wide range of topics, from recipes to food preparation and celebrity food fads. The programme is made by Optomen Television and aired weekly on Channel 4.

The theme tune is a 2000 single of the same name by the UK band Babybird.

The first season was filmed at Ladbroke Grove, West London. The second season's restaurant was Deep, located in the Imperial Wharf, south-west London, near the Thames. A third series has aired on Channel 4 and the fourth series begun on May 13th, 2008, and airs on Tuesdays at 9pm.

In the first series of The F-Word, the potty-mouthed Ramsay mockingly named the turkeys he raised: Antony, Ainsley, Jamie, Delia, Gary and Nigella – all in reference to other famous celebrity chefs. During the second series, Ramsay named the two pigs that he was raising after Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine who found the naming highly amusing. In July 2006, Channel 4 announced that it had re-signed Ramsay to an exclusive four-year deal at the network, running until July 2011. During the third series, Ramsay reared lambs that had been selected from a farm in North Wales and he named them after two Welsh celebrities, Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson. The series became one of the highest rated shows aired on Channel 4 each week.

The show is organised around several key, recurring features, notably a brigade competition, a guest cook competition, a food related investigative report and a series-long project of raising animals to be served in the finale. The guest cook (usually a celebrity) prepares a dish of their own choosing and places it in competition against a similar dish submitted by Ramsay. The dishes are judged by diners who are unaware of who cooked which dish and, if the guest wins (as they have on numerous occasions), their dish is served at Ramsay's restaurant. Each series also features a series-long project of raising animals to be used as the main course in the series finale.

Gordon Ramsay dictation on food ingredients makes viewers learn easier than the others. Simple words and voila!

I will review on The F-Word (downloading season 4) and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare soon.
