Gordon Ramsay has hit back at the trolls who criticised his ‘ultimate grilled cheese’ by making a new one with a high-octane twist.
The celebrity chef, 56, shared a redemption video on TikTok on 6 August three years after the grilled cheese sandwich he'd made in Tasmania for his Ramsay Around the World series on YouTube was ridiculed.
Comments left by fans in response to the August 2020 episode are not very kind to say the least.
“For years, he called people an idiot sandwich. Now he actually showed the world how to make one,” a fan wrote.
“My man really managed to cook a medium rare grilled cheese,” someone else quipped.
While another joked: “I realised I have been doing grilled cheese sandwiches wrong for all these years. Every time i do it the cheese melts.”
And Ramsay didn’t waste any time addressing the cheesy controversy in his new video, for which he went to a race track to film himself making the new and improved version of the classic snack.
“Last time I made a grilled cheese, you guys absolutely pummelled me,” he told viewers at the start of the video.
“So I’d like to redeem myself and give you a grilled cheese like no other.”
While the ingredients for the Kitchen Nightmares star’s new grilled cheese sandwich were all pretty standard, it was the oven that added the special touch.
The ‘grill’ was actually the V12 1200 horsepower engine of an Aston Martin Valkyrie. The only way to cook using one of the sandwiches is by giving the supercar a spin around a track, obviously, and that’s what Ramsay did.
After whipping the motor around the race track, the TV chef pops open the bonnet and gently unwraps his snack from the foil and voila - a grilled cheese sandwich with melted cheese.
And comments in response to the new and improved sandwich were a lot more positive.
“Time for some fun on the track! This just looks like perfection - grilled cheese that actually melts? Yum!” one person commented.
Another TikTok commenter penned: “He finally did it he finally managed a grilled cheese that melted.”
A third grateful fan said: “Thank you for addressing the grilled cheese incident.”
Meanwhile a fourth wrote: “He really just flexed on us for grilling him about a grilled cheese.”
And that's how you do it.Featured Image Credit: @gordonramsayofficial/TikTok
