Gordon Ramsay praises Black Hoof in Food Network interview
Gordon Ramsay, the British chef known for his passion (read: yelling profanities) in the kitchen, has heaped even more praise on The Black Hoof, which he dined at when he was in Toronto for the Chef’s Challenge in December. In an interview with Food Network Canada, Ramsay raved about the horse mortadella, saying:
I tried serving a horse burger once in London, and PETA dumped ten tons of horse shit outside the front door of Claridges and we had to evacuate the hotel. Why is everyone squeamish about horse meat? It’s delicious, for God’s sake.
He goes on to say: “The Black Hoof, for me, was extraordinary. I was like a pig in shit.” Presumably, not horse shit.
