by Jason Williams Channel 4 is looking for pub chefs to take part in its second series of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. The programme will return to our screens next year, with Ramsay giving more struggling businesses the benefit or his knowledge, expertise and sharp tongue. The first series was accused of unfairly portraying some of the restaurant kitchens involved, including the Walnut Tree Inn near Abergavenny in Wales. Its owners Enrica and Francesco Mattioli were upset at not being told that the name of the show was Kitchen Nightmares. After the tough treatment given to some of the restaurants in the first series, it remains to be seen whether the response from volunteers for the new programmes will be more reluctant. But many pub chefs say they are keen to be involved. David Stuart, chef at the Angel in Poole, Dorset, says of Ramsay's aggressive style of command: "I have worked with people like him in London and his attitude would not phase me. He would be very interesting to chef with." Paul Capener from the Unicorn in Cubblington, Buckinghamshire, considers the celebrity chef one of the world's most talented, and he would definitely consider being a part of the programme. "Gordon Ramsay can come to my kitchen any time he wants," Capener enthuses. Anyone who is interested in taking part in the new series should call 0207 9671234 or visitwww.channel4.com/ramsay for an application form.
