IT'S a moment you're not likely to see on the Food Channel: The host, a famous chef, chokes on a rotten scallop in the alley behind the restaurant, then turns on the hapless cook with a string of bleeped-out expletives that makes Tony Bourdain sound like Captain Kangaroo. Welcome to "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare," a new four-part series on BBC America. It airs Tuesday nights at 9 and repeats Wednesdays at midnight and 4 a.m.

"Tabatha's Salon Takeover," which premieres tonight at 10, is Bravo's contribution to the growing sub-genre of "whip it" television, in which self-anointed experts, preferably with non-American accents, parachute into crisis situations -- a floundering restaurant, a discipline-challenged family -- and whip everyone into shape. As the title might indicate, "Tabatha's Salon Takeover" provides this service for struggling hair salons. A "Kitchen Nightmares" setup, only with hair instead of food and stylist/salon owner Tabatha Coffey instead of Gordon Ramsay.

Gordon Ramsay's reign of kitchen terror continues on Fox, with "Masterchef" returning for a fourth season. "We're excited to be back for another season of 'Masterchef," Ramsay, who serves as executive producer and a judge on the series, said in a statement. "I am continually amazed by the raw talent, passion and creativity of home cooks across America. The contestants raise the bar every season, and it's an inspiration and exciting challenge for us. " The third season of the culinary competition series, which pits home cooks against each other, is currently airing on the network.

Time and time again on this season of "MasterChef," chef Gordon Ramsay asked sight-impaired competitor Christine Ha: Am I being pranked? Are you really blind? True, it's an un-P.C. question. But it's the question that everyone has been thinking as Christine continued to cook her way ahead of her fellow competitors on Season 3 of "MasterChef," the search to find the best home cooks in America. Under most circumstances, the compelling story line going into next week's finale would be Josh Marks.

The finale of "Hell's Kitchen" came down to a Passion vs. Palate Play.  And passion ruled the day as Chef Gordon Ramsay crowned Christina Wilson the Season 10 winner of "Hell's Kitchen. " Her punishment -- er, make that her reward! -- is to become Ramsay's full-time employee at his new steakhouse, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas. There, she'll continue to toil under "Hell's Kitchen"-like conditions under Ramsay's rule -- but she will at least get paid to do it. And a princely sum at that: $250,000 a year.

Third Street is on its way to becoming the latest restaurant row with a slew of openings slated for the next few months. Already open, a second restaurant from Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of Animal in the old Cynthia's space just east of Orlando Avenue. It's called Son of a Gun and like Animal, their meat-centric first restaurant, you're not going to forget the name or wonder how to spell it. Right now it has a stealth presence on the street, the facade painted gray and no sign.

Apparently, when he's not gallop-dancing in parking garages, Psy needs to be fed. The fitted-suit-and-sunglasses-clad Korean pop singer whose video for "Gangnam Style" became the sensation of 2012 is looking for a personal chef. That had us wondering how certain chefs with, how do we say this, distinct personalities - Wolfgang Puck, Gordon Ramsay to name just two - would handle the gig. We came up with a list of eight contenders. (Psy, you can thank us later.) Gordon Ramsay (Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, etc.)

Outstanding happy hour deals at top L.A. bars and clubs. Gordon Ramsay may be best known for screaming at petulant underlings on his reality TV ventures, but he makes a much softer sell at the London, his upscale-approachable WeHo venture. From 5 to 7 p.m. on weekdays in September, the London will abrasively belittle its prices on select drinks, appetizers and even valet parking down to $5. That five-spot will get you a refreshing-sounding Summer in London (London Dry Gin, grapefruit juice and champagne floater, hopefully not with a side of rioting)

June 21, 2006 | From a Times staff writer
Gordon Ramsay has won a libel action against a British newspaper that accused the celebrity chef of faking scenes on a reality TV show. The Evening Standard claimed in November that parts of "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" -- in which Ramsay helps save failing restaurants -- had been exaggerated. It also claimed the program had put an incompetent chef into place at a struggling bistro featured in one episode.
