Famed chef Gordon Ramsay flew into the film capital of the world to celebrate the first anniversary of his fine establishment, Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood. The fabulous evening was fun and filled of fanfare and food.


Chef Andy Cook, with sous chef Kishi Harutaka and pastry chef Carl Bertka, prepared flavorful and fancy fare such as foie gras with barbecued eel in a maki roll, and crème fraîche served on top of cured salmon and caviar. The specialty cocktail of the fiesta was called “The Finest Hour.”


As a big fan of force of nature Gordon, I asked him to sign one of his books for me. In a friendly manner and in perfect français (French), he insisted to do it for “ton fils” (my son), who he has met when filming “Hell’s Kitchen.”


We foresee many more fantastic feasts in the future at his flourishing foray in our fair city.
