Gordon Ramsay’s Cook-along Coming To Fox

TV chef Gordon Ramsay wants you to join him for a night, as the MasterChef star hosts a live, one-hour Fox special in which he gives viewers step-by-step instructions toward making a delicious three-course meal consisting of Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp, Steak Diane and Tiramisu.

The celeb chef — who is to cooking what Simon Cowell is to evaluating singers: blunt, brutal and the best in the business — is looking for some chefs to appear alongside him on the delicious dais for the special; if interested, check out fox.com/casting
