Alright. Put down your lunch, this is horrible. Gordon Ramsay has tasted a dish containing part of a Hell's Kitchen hopeful's thumb.
US cook Matt, 35, accidentally cut off the tip of his thumb while preparing pancetta to stuff a quail. He ran out of the kitchen, but his teammates, without realising, took over and fried it in a pan with the meat. Gordon said: "Oh God - finger pancetta," but carried on as normal, sampling the dish, and - with a nod to Johnny Depp's Willy Wonker, perhaps - saying simply: "It tastes weird."
