10 People Who Have Gordon Ramsay on Their Shitlist

Now that Gordon Ramsay has managed to piss off even more people with the revelation that he has applied for UK trademark rights to "The Spotted Pig," the same name as April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman's New York restaurant, it's a good time to take a look at all the people Ramsay has been pissing off over the past couple of years. Some anger has been expressed formally via many, many lawsuits, while matters have been aired in the media or over Twitter. Here now, 10 people who count Gordon Ramsay on their shitlists, including his family members, business partners and fellow chefs.

 "maybe April could take a lead from his wretched place in LA & open a restaurant in London called 'Fat C**t' in tribute to him." — Author and Iron Chef judge Simon Majumdar on Gordon Ramsay trying to trademark "The Spotted Pig" aka SpottedPigGate. [Twitter]

Less than a year after Sprinkles introduced the famously ridiculous cupcake ATM to the people of Los Angeles, now a caviar company is getting in on the automated action. Yes, Beverly Hills Caviar has now unleashed its caviar vending machine, the answer to every question no one has ever asked. According to the company's Facebook page — describing it as a "unique caviar boutique" — the ATM "offers a large selection of the world's finest Selection of Caviar, Truffles, Escargot, Bottarga, Blinis, oils, Mother of Pearl plates and spoons, gift boxes and gourmet salts."

Can you get caviar at 2 a.m.? >>>

Watch Eight Explosive Deep-Fried Turkey Disaster Videos

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, which around these parts means it's time to watch a bunch of horrifying turkey deep fryer disasters. When it comes to deep frying a turkey, it turns out there is a right way and a very, very wrong way to do it. Word to the wise: if you must submerge your turkey in blazing hot oil instead of roasting it in a comparably safe oven, please make sure it is 100% defrosted first. (For more tips, maybe try the Alton Brown method? See videos: part one, part two, part three.)

Below, seven never-before-posted-on-Eater Thanksgiving deep fryer disaster videos, plus one all-time favorite. If these aren't enough for you, there are many more turkey flameballs where these came from. Have a happy Thanksgiving, and for the love of turkey, don't try this at home.

The videos. >>>

 Here's the slideshow listicle "Best Top Chef Restaurants" from Food & Wine. Basically a list of places where ex-Top Cheftestajorts cook, it also amusingly includes two restaurants that aren't even open yet: Kevin Gillespie's Gunshow in Atlanta and Jen Carroll's Concrete Blonde in New York City.

The Eater London Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now


[Photo: Medlar]

It's been five months since we last looked at London's hottest restaurants, so today we circle back and focus on seven new openings that have been garnering serious buzz. Among the choices: two new restaurants from the master scene curators behind The Wolseley (Café Colbert and Brasserie Zédel), a spot-on Soho restaurant from Chez Bruce and Ledbury alums (Medlar), a Thai street food venture from one of David Thompson's former operatives (The Begging Bowl), and a fourth outpost of the steakhouse Hawksmoor that distinguishes itself from the others by serving great seafood (Hawksmoor Air Street). Remarking on the city's recent openings, critic Jay Rayner said, "If a city gets the restaurants it deserves then London has clearly been a very good girl of late."

Here now, the Eater Heatmap to London:
