Gordon Ramsay, while in Costa Rica filming an episode for the upcoming Channel 4 series Big Fish Fight (the other episodes are with Heston Blumenthal and Jamie Oliver), was held at gunpoint and had "a barrel of petrol" tipped over him. He was "investigating the illegal trade in shark fins, which led to a confrontation with heavily armed Costa Rican gangsters." Which is sort of scary! Also, apparently Ramsay had more work done to his face, which is also scary (if true). Meanwhile, the Guardian asks, "Do you remember when chefs just cooked?"
