Gordon Ramsay Scandals & Controversies

Gordon Ramsay Scandals & Controversies

In 2009,  Mario Batali from the food network said, “Gordon bugs me,” and his food was dull, outdated, that the man had no understanding of the importance of ingredients.

Gordon then insulted Bitali’s fashion sense by calling his favored orange shorts “Fanta Pants.”

So…

The food network Mario Batali banned Gordon Ramsay from his restaurants after he insulted his fashion sense. 

Uh-oh, the man touched a sore nerve there. 

In 2009, Gordon Ramsay admitted to serving frozen food in his high-end restaurants.

GR Logistics admitted that they prepare components of dishes devised and produced to the highest Gordon Ramsay standards. They are sealed and shipped daily in refrigerated vans, and all menu dishes are then cooked in the individual kitchens.

Also, in 2009, Ramsay made a nasty comment about the physical appearance of an Australian television personality Jamie Oliver, that earned a rebuke from Italian cuisine expert Oliver.

The feud lasted for years.

But…

The feud ended by the time Jamie Oliver’s restaurant empire collapsed. 

The two had apparently buried the hatchet, and Ramsay reached out after hearing the news about Jamie Oliver and are now “absolutely” friends.

In 2008, Sarah Symonds, self-described “professional mistress,” accused Gordon Ramsay of infidelity. 

And…

She claimed that she had a seven-year affair with the married chef. 

Symonds also claimed to be Ramsay’s soulmate and confidante and described him as someone who lives on the edge and who loves the risk and needs that adrenaline rush.

Then…

Ramsay restated his innocence and the reason why he won’t  cheat on his wife; his reply was: “If I ever f**ked up, she’d have my balls in a vise and turn them into a f**king crêpe suzette thinner than the frilliest knickers Paris Hilton’s ever worn.”

Aww, such sweet words.

  • “I don’t like looking back. I’m always constantly looking forward. I’m not the one to sort of sit and cry over spilt milk. I’m too busy looking for the next cow.”
  • “As a soccer player, I wanted an FA Cup winner’s medal. As an actor, you want an Oscar. As a chef, it’s three-Michelin’s stars; there’s no greater than that. So pushing yourself to the extreme creates a lot of pressure and a lot of excitement, and more importantly, it shows on the plate.”
  • “I train my chefs completely different to anyone else. My young girls and guys, when they come to the kitchen, the first thing they get is a blindfold. They get blindfolded and they get sat down at the chef’s table… Unless they can identify what they’re tasting, they don’t get to cook it.”
