image for Gordon Ramsay Announces Celery Cook-Off
World's most humble vegetable

LONDON, ENGLAND - Gordon Ramsay, who has been awarded 15 Michelin Stars, has plans to hold a celery cook-off in July in Arvada, Colorado, the Celery Capital of the World.

According to Ramsay, "Any chef can hold their own in a chowder cook-off or a chile cook-off, even Brits are holding chile cook-offs these days, but my challenge to the world's chefs is using celery creatively in a celery cook-off. Everybody is trying to make vegetables the cool things to eat, but does anyone really care about celery? I say, let's see what chefs can do to change the world's lowly opinion about celery!"

When most people think of celery, they think of a rather boring, almost tasteless vegetable that gets limp very quickly. Ramsay wants to change all that, to the tune of $50,000 for the first place winner.

Continued Ramsay, "To win 1st prize, chefs are going to have to go way beyond celery filled with peanut butter. I will be judging the cook-off myself and plan to use the best, most delicious recipes for a new cookbook called, Censational Celery: Beyond Crunch.

Chefs from all over the globe are invited to participate. Ramsay says he will screen entry recipe ideas and narrow the cook-off participants to a manageable 150.
