Something Fishy

‘LET’S play a word association game. Ready? Ok. Gordon Ramsay…

Hello, sailor

Whooaaah! Calm down, there are children watching. One word will do, and if must launch into a volley of such odious expletives, please do so in the small rubber room that counts for your home.

But someone is still hopping mad. And as the Express says, Liam Tooke has reason to be less than delighted with the foul-mouthed celebrity chef.

Having revived a gift of Gordon Ramsay’s Passion Fruit Parfait Kit from his loving fiancée, Tooke, himself a professional chef, got to work.

The £15 pressie included four stainless steel moulds, a recipe, some chocolates and a tin of passion fruit in syrup, or Gordon Ramsay Passion Fruit Pulp in Syrup, to give the condiment its full mouth-watering title.

Only, the label was loose, and became looser still as Tooke began to peel it away. And he was met with the ugly truth. This was not Ramsay’s creation, but the work of one John West, a man more renowned for his tinned salmon.

Over in the Mirror, Ramsay’s team are less than contrite. His aide simply tells us: “The John West logo should have been removed by the distribution company.”

Of that “f****** distribution company”, as Ramsay may now be calling it…’
