Who is Gordon and why is that the only food?

Gordon ramseys home cooking show was just on tv 3 (repeat) he makes dinner for the family - 5 of them, and they all get 1 piece of chicken each and some pickled celery . that's the total of the main course LOL

Ah, why didn't I think of TV?

Did you get the recipe for the pickled celery? It sounds interesting.

1/2 head celery, trimmed
100g castor sugar
100ml White wine vinegar
4-5 cloves
1 tbsp mustard seeds
6 black peppercorns
Sea salt

separate celery and cut each stick diagonally into slices about 1cm thick. set aside in large bowl

place a small pan over medium heat and add all the remaining ingredients, including 50ml water and a pinch of salt. bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer and stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary. you want a balance between sour and sweet. allow to cool until warm.

pour the pickling liquid over the celery and leave to cool completely before eating. If placed in a sterilised airtight jar and stored in the fridge, it will keep for up to a month.
