Carmina Burana Lyrics Competition Winner

Ode to Sleep Deprived Parents - In the tradition of Carlton's Big Beer Ad, we invited our Facebook fans to change the lyrics of the iconic opening chorus of Carmina Burana to whatever they liked, and we would get the fabulous Sydney Philharmonia Choirs to sing the winning entry. We received a huge number of entries about a range of topics. Matthew Hodge's entry, an Ode to Sleep Deprived Parents and was declared the winner!

Gordon Ramsay Interview on Rove (Australia): Hilarious Insults Exchanged

Gordon Ramsay interview on ROVE (live in studio with Rove McManus).

Official ROVE: http://RoveDaily.com.au

Superstar chef, restaurateur and international TV star of shows like the F-Word and Hells Kitchen, he has won more awards than youve had hot dinners.

One of TVs most outrageous and outspoken celebrity chefs, Scottish-born Gordon initially had a promising career in professional football (soccer, to us) with the Glasgow Rangers, before an injury prematurely cut that short.

Fortunately, he was just as passionate about cooking and he graduated from a course in hotel management. His first years in the kitchen were spent training under the worlds best chefs in London and France, and in 1993 he became chef of a new restaurant that was awarded two Michelin stars within 3 years under his rule. At only 31 years old, Gordon opened his first wholly owned restaurant, Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea, London and in 2001 it won its third Michelin star. This has been followed by more restaurants in London, Dubai, America, France, Prague and Ireland picking up more Michelin stars (the restaurant worlds biggest and most prestigious award) along the way. In 2007 he opened his first pub, and now has three around London.

Hes shared his tasty delights in hugely successful cookbooks over the past decade, most recently 'Gordons Ramsays Cooking for Friends'. His 2006 autobiography 'Humble Pie' is a best-seller, with the follow-up 'Playing with Fire', giving an insight into his success.

In 2001 he set up The Gordon Ramsay School Award, established to recognise talented young cooks. Gordon became one of the UK, and now the worlds, biggest and most controversial TV stars with his saucy language on award winning TV shows like Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Hell's Kitchen and The F-Word.

The Queen has even got into the act, awarding Gordon an OBE in the New Year's Honours list!

Gordon is headlining the 2009 Melbourne & Sydney Good Food & Wine Shows. Hell be cooking up a lot of great food and just a bit of mischief at the LG Celebrity Theatre.
