Gordon Ramsay is known for being one of the harshest chefs in the business. Hell’s Kitchen has been running for over a decade, over 16 glorious seasons full of bullying and tears. Ramsay’s built a multimillion pound empire from essentially being mean to people, and we can’t get enough of it.
But have you ever stopped to wonder if the all-knowing Gordon Ramsay has ever made a blunder of his own? Has any chef ever put his head between two slices of bread and called him an idiot sandwich?
As it turns out, Ramsay is not as immune to criticism as you’d think. Back in 2009, during an episode of the F-Word, Gordon cooked a pad thai for the executive chef of thai restaurant The Blue Elephant. It started off innocently enough, with Ramsay explaining his steps and frying up what looked like a delicious dish. However, Chef Chang didn’t agree. Head over to the next page to hear what he had to say. Clue: it wasn’t good.
After tasting Ramsay’s freshly-cooked pad thai, Chef Chang wasn’t happy. In fact, he told Ramsay: “This is not Pad Thai at all. Pad Thai has to be sweet, sour, and salty.” Well, this is awkward. Take a look at the clip below to see the entire glorious episode unfold.
So there you have it: everything you thought you knew about Gordon Ramsay has changed forever. At least you can be satisfied in the knowledge that everyone makes mistakes, even the world’s most impressive figures. Including, it would seem, the people who worked on these 20 multimillion dollar films.
