Real Life Ratatouille

ratatouille[The Morton Report] This goes back a few years but is still worth telling.

A well-known chef was most upset to find that rats had made a warm and comfortable home beneath his industrial-sized dishwasher. After much cursing, and amid fears of being shut down by public health authorities, our chef had the unwelcome rodents quietly removed by a company sworn to commercial secrecy. Mysteriously, the tale ended up as a blind item in a newspaper diary.

A few days later, the columnist was amazed to receive an irate, four-lettered phone call about the item … but it was from a different celebrity chef!

    Wolfgang Puck and Emeril Lagasse (hahah, idk)

    This has to be Gordon Ramsey.

  • JenJenJen

    I’m assuming with all the language, it’s Gordan Ramsey as the chef with the infestation. He famously doesn’t get on with Jamie Oliver, so I’d imagine Oliver might enjoy the retaliation of getting one over on Ramsey perhaps?

    Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey (Ramsey doing the foul mouth ranting, of course)

    Hmmmm, Ratatouille is French, but The Morton Report is British, and BG is American, so could be just about anyone…no real clue, so I’ll guess,

    Well known: Jamie Oliver
    Potty Mouth: Gordon Ramsey

  • nosecrets

    hmmm.. the only well-known chef i know is Gordon Ramsey, so I guess that’s who I think it is

    “After much cursing” points to Gordon Ramsey for the well-known chef, although I would say he was famous rather than well-known. Perhaps Marco Pierre White for the different celebrity chef?

    Or alternatively, perhaps Marco Pierre White and Jamie Oliver? They have a rivalry too…

      THIS ^^

      gordon ramsay was marco’s protege and Marco had a reputation 10 times worse than Gordon. So i can see Marco calling up the writer for his friend. (until Gordon stole his own restaurant’s reservation book and blamed it on Marco) and its so obvious that Gordon’s ‘bad boy’ schtick is a rip off of Marco’s who was the ULTIMATE bad boy chef. he even made Gordon Ramsay cry! HA!

  • Naija_girl

    Gordon Ramsey is one of them lol

  • up2trouble

    Well-known Chef: Mario Batali, I guessing him because recently he was suppossedly installing special alarms to alert staff to the inspectors [http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/mario_serving_up_duck_special_yucoWzPrC7vNefUnxgK84L], so obviously he may have a history with public health authorities.

    Different Celebrity Chef: Scott Conant, for no other reason than he sticks me as shifty.
