Remembering The Time Gordon Ramsay Got Ripped Apart By A Thai Chef
| Last updated
Gordon Ramsay is definitely the last person you'd want to come to yours for dinner. You know he'd just spend the whole time complaining about how you've overcooked the fish and how you bought cheap wine rather than splashing out on the good plonk.
Then he'd put your face in between two slices of bread and call you an 'idiot sandwich'. Ugh.
Well, this clip might just make you feel a little less worthless, as it shows that even Gordon Ramsay screws up.
The clip is from 2009, and we can only assume that Gordon's still embarrassed about it, as a Thai chef effectively tells him his Pad Thai is absolutely crap.
It's is taken from an episode of The F-Word, in which Gord makes a delicious looking Pad Thai for Chef Chang, the executive chef of a Thai restaurant called The Blue Elephant.
Chang says: "This is not Pad Thai at all. Pad Thai has to be sweet, sour, and salty."
"I think that doesn't taste too bad," Gordon says.
Chang replies: "To you, but not for me."
The pressure to deliver was very much on, as Gordon was cooking pad Thai for the Buddhist monks in the Wimbledon Thai temple.
And he knew it, too, saying earlier in the programme: "I love Thai food. I love cooking it. I love eating it. But this has to be the most daunting task so far. The monks spend most of their waking hours meditating and studying.
"Buddhist teachings forbid them to cook so it's up to the local Thai community to offer the one meal the monks are allowed to eat at 11 o'clock each day."
He then referred to the experience of cooking for the monks as an 'honour and privilege' - an honour and privilege that he managed to screw up, by the sounds of it.
And it's not the first time a fellow chef has absolutely roasted ol' Gordon.
In Gordon's recent ITV show, Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine, he investigates the restaurant industry's 'dirty little secret': a cocaine problem, for both customers and chefs.
But his coke crusade seems to have attracted the ire of a top chef, who has told him to 'fuck off' and 'try doing something positive' instead of criticising his fellow chefs.
In a widely shared Facebook post, Neil Rankin accused Ramsay of 'glorifying kitchen abuse', saying that if he is worried about his staff abusing cocaine, he 'might want to look at their rotas and give them a good night's sleep'.
