Stop The Press! Gordon Ramsay Reckons This Bloke’s Food Is Good
| Last updated
Gordon Ramsay probably regrets getting people to tweet their food to him for a classic, foul-mouthed review. Fans have honestly sent through the most drab, depressing, awful looking food you could imagine, and the Scottish born chef doesn't hold back when describing how it makes him feel.
Watching his TV shows and him in general, you'd think it would be virtually impossible to elicit a compliment or at least a non-criticism, wouldn't it?
But a man by the name of Lewis Mac has appeared to impress Mr Ramsay with his scrambled eggs on toast, with vine tomatoes and a grilled mushroom.
It doesn't appear to be the most lavish, extravagant or special meal, but it does look delicious.
Despite its lack of pizzazz, it's won the respect of Gordon Ramsay, with the chef saying: "Looks good Lewis."
The compliment was as simple as the meal: short, to the point, not messing about. The tweet has received more than 20,000 likes and retweets, with many users shocked and surprised that the 50-year-old is able to say something nice.
That's one of the first times I've seen a reply that wasn't incredibly savage- :cactus:Lauren:green_heart: (@WannabeJauregay) November 5, 2017
Sure, we've seen him be really nice to kids on Masterchef Junior, but that smile quickly fades when he knows he can fully let loose on an individual.
Lewis said he was expecting to get absolutely roasted for his breakfast or brunch worthy meal, but was pleasantly surprised by the remarks. Another user was similarly shocked in May when she tweeted a photo of her fiancée's skillet pork loin.
A mere glimpse at that simmering meal is enough to get people salivating all over the place, and it seems like Gordon was swept away with it as well. He replied to Bridgett with: "Marry him..." which is a decent enough compliment from him.
But if you thought the tide was turning in Mr Ramsay's mind, you'd be sorely mistaken.
He's still as savage as ever and doesn't waste a second tearing into people's food.

He seems to like using vomit as a great analogy to people's meals. Have they ever heard of a tiny bit of garnish? Maybe that would take their dish from a 0.1/10 to a solid one.
Ramsay recently went on a rant about chef Michel Roux Sr, labelling him a 'pompous old fart' after he banned diners from posting pictures of his restaurant's dishes on Instagram. Michel, 76, put up a sign at Michelin-starred The Waterside Inn, telling customers not to take photos of their food.
Gordon, 50, called the move 'bloody pompous', adding: "It's a compliment to the chef the fact that customers want to take a pictures of dishes they've paid for - it's 2017.
"It's a free promotion they should be grateful for. He's just an old fart who's forgotten to move on."
To be fair, you'd be hard pressed to go to a restaurant these days and not have people trying to take photos of their meals for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest or whatever app they use. Ramsay isn't wrong either, even if the person has 10 followers, that's still free advertising.
