Gordon Ramsay Swears by Melbourne

Gordon Ramsay has apparently just announced he will be opening his new Australian restaurant in Melbourne, knocking the favorite, Sydney, out of the running.

“Melbourne is like New York,” said Ramsay this week. “It has that culture of foodies that are finicky, hard-ass and very possessive of their city.”

Ramsay has speculated the new restaurant will open in the next 18 months and will be run by a local chef. He is currently sourcing a site for the new eatery.

Look, I know that other foodies will most likely castigate me for it, but I rather like Gordon Ramsay. Sure he's a smart-arse and he's got a mouth on him like a soiled diaper but I think he's smashing entertainment. And I'm proud he'll be opening an eatery in Australia too, especially as it's going to be in my old stomping ground of Melbourne.

Now, I wonder who amongst our culinary stock will be sworn in as head chef..? Get it? Sworn in? Oh, never mind.

Gday Cynthia. Yeah, he's so hot right now, although not as hot as I was hoping. Turns out it was all media conjecture. Boo!!
