Gordon Ramsay is the hottest chef in London today, also going strong at his Chelsea restaurant, called Gordon Ramsay. He now rules at the staid, traditional hotel of Claridge's, legendary since 1860 when Queen Victoria took with the Empress Eugenie. Most definitely Victoria wasn't served an amuse-bouche of pumpkin soup dribbled with truffle oil and studded with truffles. Although the menu changes frequently, a memorable culinary highlight began with such starters as crispy Gloucester pork belly with sautéed langoustines, purée of Savoy cabbage, and quail's eggs. Whoever thought celeriac risotto with toasted pine nuts and Parmesan Reggiano could taste so good? Dishes, including steamed sea bass with roasted salsify and vanilla jus or braised Cornish turbot with Oscietra caviar and coriander sauce, are constantly changing and always inventive. A rich, meaty dish -- perhaps to be appreciated by a budding Henry VIII -- is West Country pork cheeks cooked in honey and cloves and served with braising juices.
