EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Gordon Ramsay sparks fury after vegetarian was served very “fish” salad
Gordon Ramsay once publicly told his teenage daughter, Tilly, that if she were to become a vegetarian, he would never forgive her.
Now the rude TV chef has bowled diners at his Mayfair restaurant by slipping fish into a dish labeled “vegetarian.”
One dinner at Gordon Ramsay Bar and Grill ordered the “classic Caesar salad,” which had a “(v)” next to it on the menu.
It is the universally recognized symbol for dishes that do not contain meat or fish.
After the guest noticed that it tasted distinctly fishy, he asked to speak to a member of staff.
The employee was reportedly unfriendly, saying it was impossible to serve a Caesar salad without anchovies in the dressing.
“Staff insist vegetarian options can include fish, which is ridiculous and not listed on the menu,” says journalist Jessica Abrahams, who is a relationship with the restaurant in question.
“He hasn’t eaten meat or fish for a decade and is very upset,” she says of her table mate.
“Not to mention that it could be an allergen problem. I would have expected more from a Gordon Ramsay restaurant.
One dinner at Gordon Ramsay Bar and Grill in Mayfair ordered the “classic Caesar salad,” which had a “(v)” next to it on the menu.
Ramsay did not respond to my inquiries, but the restaurant has since changed their menu, removing the “(v)” sign from the dish.
The Vegetarian Society is not impressed and tells me, “Anchovies are fish. Vegetarians don’t eat fish.
“This salad is not vegetarian and is mislabeled.”
Glasgow Ramsay has a history of provoking vegetarians.
He once admitted to giving them a soup made from chicken broth, insisting that they found it more delicious than the herbal alternative.
And in his TV series Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, he tricked a vegetarian into eating a pizza with Parma ham hidden under the cheese.
Ramsay mocked the man while asking if he wanted more, and told the restaurant’s chefs that they had “converted a vegetarian.”
He is possibly the second most recognizable clergyman in this country after the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Radio 4 presenter Reverend Richard Coles says his popularity gets him off with almost anything.
I was kind of pushed towards national treasure – or borderline national trinket status, like [my late partner] David used to call him, ”explains the former musician who became a star of Strictly.
“And the point is, once you’re in that frame, I sometimes think I could set my own church on fire and people would say, ‘Oh, what a beautiful fire. “‘

The wedding will take place at the San Francisco home that once belonged to his grandmother, Ann Getty.
Can’t wait to read a book by failed Labor leader Ed Miliband? No, me neither.
But at least someone got paid to do it.
Miliband revealed in the House of Commons Members’ Financial Interests Register that he was given £ 1,230 to narrate publisher Bodley Head’s book for the audiobook version.
It’s called Go Big: How to Fix Our World. Poor Miliband couldn’t even fix Labor.

“Imagine the fear if someone pulls you under your feet while yelling about the way you are on their way,” she says.
“I can guarantee this is happening in my local lido, where I swim almost every day. “It’s not the fast lane that bothers, it’s the second lane.
They won’t go on the fast in case they can’t keep up, but they’re happy to spoil your swim by walking past you or pushing you out of the way.
