Gordon": Ramsay A chef forzf” ll


Expletives deleted in Gordon Ramsay's forthcoming book

AFTER THE BANKRUPTCY that led to the demise of the Chez Jules chain, the Cockburn Street Branch has been reborn as Chez Janine. Proprietor Janine Rennie, who was manager under the old regime, has relaunched the relaxed French restaurant with a bit of a tidy up and lick of paint. She's keen to emphasise that the atmosphere and prices remain unchanged. Chez Janine, 29 Cockburn Street, 0131 225 7007.

GORDON RAMSAY, NEVER out of the headlines for reason entirely unconnected with food (like swearing, business disputes and a tragic brother addicted to heroin), is set to remind us that he has a day job as a chef. September will see publication of his third book with the statesman-like title of A Chef For All Seasons. A major new telly series will screen this autumn. Following last year's Boiling Point documentary on Channel Four, expectations of high drama and foul language will be great. But our bet is Ramsay is aiming for primetime and family friendly rehabilitation. Viewers should expect expletives to be deleted.
