Gordon Ramsay developed a series called The F-Word. In the show Ramsay challenges celebrity friends to prepare a 3-course meal for 50 people. And the meal needs to be something that people can cook at home. The diners judge the meal and they only pay the bill if they think it is good enough. During the show Ramsay travels all over the world searching for the best ingredients he can find. During one episode Ramsay cooks in a prison for its inmates, and he was so impressed at how quickly one of the inmates chopped some vegetables that he offered to give him a job when he was released.
