cookalonglive What you need to 'Cookalong Live' with Gordon Ramsay ... if you dareWhen we received our shopping list and and grocery bag in preparation for FOX’s upcoming “Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live” show last week we were pleased to see that the less-than-successful Baked Alaska he walked a couple hundred TV critics through at the summer TV press tour is not on the menu.

On the other hand, how many people are rolling up their sleeves at 9 p.m. ET on a Tuesday night to start cooking a three-course dinner for four? We know Ramsay is Scottish, but the rest of us are not on a European dining schedule.

Still, if you plan to give it a go, here’s what you’re going to need:

MENU

· APPETIZER – Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp, Chili Peppers and Tomatoes (Serves 4)
· MAIN COURSE – Steak Diane with Sautéed Potatoes and Peas (Serves 4)

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales.
