Gordon Ramsey has taken time out from his busy schedule and prepared Christmas dinner for 800 British soldiers stationed at Helmand province, Afghanistan. This truly was hell’s kitchen and by far one of the toughest challenges that this famous restaurateur has ever had to face.
The event was organized by the Daily Mirror. In his interview, Chef Ramsey said,
“It was well worth it to see the look on the guys’ faces when they came into the dining tent. It was absolutely brilliant. I’m only sorry I couldn’t do this for more of the men and women from the armed forces who are out here.”
Truly it made for a great christmas meal. If you can’t have your mother’s turkey at least you get a fantastic turkey feast courtesy of a world famous chef. Not bad at all for a christmas present. It makes being away from home at least a bit more palatable, even if only for one night.
