Dec 15th - Gordon Ramsay Cookalong

Some time ago we told you that Chef Gordon Ramsay was going to have a cook-along with you.
The time is near -  Tuesday, Dec. 15 on Fox -- "Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live."
The audience is invited to cook along with Gordon Ramsay, yes, the Michelin-honored chef will walk viewers through a three-course meal for four that they will prepare within one hour's time.
For those living on the west coast there will be a delay.
Even though Ramsay will be cooking live from Los Angeles, it won't be seen locally until 9 p.m.,and that means you'll be eating  at 10 p.m.
For those on the east coast, you'll eat at a more respectable hour.
Get your Ti-Vo ready.

Here's the menu.
For starters, it's angel hair pasta with shrimp, chili peppers and tomatoes.
The main course will be Steak Diane with sauteed potatoes and peas.
A quick tiramisu completes the meal.
