Mark_Sargeant.jpgOn the heels of news that Gordon Ramsay's F-Word show is tanking in the UK comes more bad news for El Gordo--Mark Sargeant, Ramsay's number two for over 13 years, has done gone and quit. He goes on to become creative director of the Swan Collection, a restaurant group that runs the dining program at Shakespeare's Globe Theater, among other places. Though the split is being played as amiable in the press, the departure comes at the end of a no good, very bad year for Ramsay, what with the threat of bankruptcy, show cancellations, and plummeting ratings in his native England. No wonder he's planning to cook live with Americans instead. [Bloomberg]
