Celebrity TV chef, foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsay, has discovered a new 'F' word to add to his vocabulary.
Ramsay spoke out today from his London restaurant, The Savoy Grill, of how Britain has become a Nation of lazy eaters who follow fads and trends instead of substance. "I call it substance abuse." he said.
Ramsay told In Seine News;
"I think that British food outlets including supermarkets should be fined if they sell fruit and vegetables that are either not locally sourced or not seasonal. This would certainly cut carbon emissions as less food would be imported. Cooks and chefs would have no choice but to be more creative with what's available in season I believe it's fundamentally important that restaurateurs provide serve locally grown fruit and vegetables which will stimulate the British economy."
In a Jamie Oliver-style rant, Mr Ramsay shouted:
"Who wants asparagus in the middle of December!; who wants strawberries now? Strawberries are traditional Wimbledon food - that's their season!"
While holding up a bumper sticker reading "Strawberries are for Wimbledon, not for Christmas"
However, a bloke from Oxfam warned that a million of East African farmers would be unable to rely on exporting goods to the UK and would have to eat what they grow.
Unknown to many people, Glaswegian-born Ramsay who is well known for his expletives suffers from Tourette's Syndrome.
