A report has been released by researchers who follow celebrities, though not necessarily because they admire them.

Scientists at York University examined recipes from several chefs from 2007 to 2012 and found Nigella Lawson, as well as popular chefs like Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay, using less than sustainable species in their dishes.

Helene Leeds Of “Masterchef” Discusses Raw Foods Experience

Written by Vegetarian Star on Thursday, July 19th, 2012 in Chefs, Film & TV, Food & Drink, Reality TV.

Helene Leeds Masterchef

Coming from an area in Maryland that is big on crabmeat, Helene Leeds said her mother threatened to disown her when she switched to a vegan diet.

The Masterchef finalist isn’t used to making crabmeat and that’s probably why she performed poorly during the challenge on Gordon Ramsay‘s Fox television series.

It’s too bad she couldn’t show off her cooking skills with the vegan dish that got her into the top 36 finalists.

“It’s enough to make anyone turn fucking vegetarian for God’s sake. And I’ve always sort of knocked vegetarians and vegans for missing out on the most amazing flavor you get from meat. But you can see why so many people change, instantly.”

Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver have taken eel off menus in their restaurants after receiving criticism from conservationists.

The seafood was served at Ramsay’s London restaurant Maze as well as La Veranda in Versailles, France, where he is a consultant. Oliver sold European eel at his London restaurant, Fifteen.

Ironically, both chefs have also recently appeared on the UK television series, “Big Fish Fight,” about sustainable fishing.

Gordon Ramsay almost found himself burning in Hell’s Kitchen–literally.

The chef was visiting Costa Rica as part of a segment on UK Channel 4′s “Big Fish Fight” series to uncover the dark side of illicit shark fin trading when he was doused with gasoline by people involved with the industry.

Ramsay said of his potentially near-death experience:

“It is a multibillion dollar industry, completely unregulated. We traced some of the biggest culprits to Costa Rica. The day before we got there, a Taiwanese crew landed a haul of hammerhead sharks – police searched the boat and found bails of cocaine.”

“These gangs operate from places that are like forts, with barbed-wire perimeters and gun towers.”

Prashad, an Indian based vegetarian restaurant in the UK, has had to increase its staff since becoming a finalist on Gordon Ramsay‘s television show, “Ramsay’s Best Restaurant.”

The show, on Britain’s Channel 4, pits restaurants against each other in meal competition, narrowing the champions down to semi-finalist and then finalists. Prashad finished as the runner-up in a broadcast last September.

“Appearing on Ramsay’s Best Restaurant has enabled us to create these opportunities and we are very grateful for that,” said restaurant owner Bobby Patel, who’s had to hire three new waiters, three new kitchen staff and is currently recruiting more.

Prashad, located at 86 Horton Grange Road, Bradford, West Yorkshire, has been featuring vegetarian deli and other menu items since 1986. Having both dine-in and take-out and delivery menus, Prashad features vegan, vegetarian, wheat-free and onion and garlic free dishes.
