On the other side of the pond — aka the UK — kitchen bad boy Gordon Ramsay will be joining Channel 4 in challenging viewers to think about their food before eating it. His new show is only two-weeks long and is called Cook-a-Long-a-Gordon Live. Ramsay will provide viewers ingredients ahead of time and ask that they cook-a-long with him live. He is hoping it will help audiences learn a few tips on how to cook a healthy meal.
Ramsay's show will be one of two other shows rounding out Channel 4's new season. The other two, Hugh's Chicken Run from The River Cottage Meat Book author Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Jamie's Fowl Dinners with Jamie Oliver, are both exposés on intensive farms and artificial conditions in the chicken farming industry.
All three of these shows sound fascinating to me, and I can't help but hope that BBC America brings them all over to this side of the pond.
In other news, Jamie Oliver is returning to Food Network in January.
