Would Chef Gordon Ramsay ever cook vegetarian food? Don’t bet on it. The cranky Hell’s Kitchen foodie was quoted as saying that he would not tolerate his daughter bringing home a vegetarian boyfriend. The statement quickly drew the ire of the world’s most famous vegetarian: Sir Paul McCartney, who has himself been a vegetarian for about thirty years. He was quoted as saying, “I think it’s a case of live and let live. I will talk to people about the advantages of vegetarianism, and it will upset me if we’ve had a good conversation and they turn around and say something stupid. I just read a quote from Gordon Ramsay… ‘If my daughter ever grew up and married a vegetarian, I’d never forgive her.’ But even that I would forgive because it’s not my affair, it’s not up to me if he talks stupid or not.”
