Fox's Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live [video]

Last night, the be-flanneled, bleached-blond, and botox-injected Gordon Ramsay, chairman of an imploding restaurant franchise, hosted the special Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live on Fox, an American reworking of the much tamer British Cookalong concept (where all Ramsay really did was stand alone in a kitchen, telling you what to do).

BEEF!: A German Food Magazine Aimed at Men

BEEF! is a new German food magazine aimed at men. (Don't confuse it with the American magazine Sheep!.) We'll let them describe themselves:
