A culinary competition between two heavyweight chefs could be coming soon – that is, if they both agree to participate.

While attending the Vegas Uncork’d culinary festival, Gordon Ramsay revealed that a cook off with Bobby Flay is in the works.

Should I let you in on a little secret?” Ramsay told the audience during the cooking presentation. “At the end of the year, we’re going to go and do a throwdown and we’re going to do the most amazing kind of cook off against a chef that I’ve grown up and admired for many years, ok, [but] he keeps on refusing to go against me. You may not have heard of him, but his name is Bobby Flay.”

The announcement was captured by a Foodbeast writer, who posted the video on Instagram and gave additional details on Ramsay’s rant.

“I do love the guy. I just can’t wait to beat his ass,” the Hell’s Kitchen host reportedly said. “Just sign the contract, Bobby!”

We’ll have to see if the sure-to-be epic battle will actually occur, but in the meantime, who do you think would win in a Ramsay vs. Flay cook off?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Wow finally I see you, Ramsey o those games. My husband’s favorite Hell s Kitchen Gordan Ramsey and he hopes he can beat Bobby.

Hope you can. Someone needs to let the air out of the one-ingredient cook.

Too Shy on

Well, I’m sure he can beat Bobby Flay, especially if the rules are no habaneros. Bobby wouldn’t know what to do. lol

Bobby is kind of a one trick pony with the Southwestern flavoring to every dish. Gordon is a more well rounded chef. Hope he wins if this is happening.

However, one question: what does he mean he grew up to Bobby Flay? They are about the same age.

Andrea on

Gordon wins already, hands down.

Gordon Ramsey is a multiple Michelin star chef. I don’t think Bobby Flay can say that. Gordon Ramsey will wipe the floor with Bobby’s arse.
