Gordon Ramsay Revealed The TikTok That Haunts His Nightmares

Gordon Ramsay has clearly made a name for himself in the culinary world and as a presenter and judge on some of the most popular food television shows. But on the internet he’s known for something completely different: criticizing home cooks’ food on TikTok. And despite confronting dozens of chefs, Gordon recently spoke to PEOPLE and revealed the one dish that haunts him to this day.

While Gordon says there are a lot of very talented people on the app, he also said that there are a lot of people who make a lot of very bad cooking decisions on TikTok.

“There is an exciting abundance of young talent on TikTok who are super, super talented … and then you do really bad shit,” he said. “People put rib eye steaks in toasters! They do the most ridiculous things with iced coffee! It’s crazy.”

We followed Gordon when he criticized everything from a turkey covered in toothpicks to cooking his own daughter, but he said there is one dish that still haunts him and gives him nightmares … and now it isn’t the steak in the toaster.

“The one I have nightmares every time I close my eyes is the guy who bought a rib eye steak and macerated it with something like four pounds of butter. It made this thing into one of the greasiest, grossest steaks done that I’ve ever seen, “he said.

OK, uh, that’s pretty bad, but he doesn’t always criticize the chefs in question. He recently praised a quarantined chef who used tools to prepare meals in his hotel room. Gordon also had some nice words for another celebrity chef … or should I say celebrity? Gordon told Insider that Gigi Hadid is a “productive cook” who uses her travel experience to influence her cuisine.

“I remember when she was at MasterChef for the first time and we had a great few days cooking together,” said Gordon, “She has one of the most articulate palates in the world.”

In fact, last weekend he even paid homage to their viral, flavorful pasta dish for a paid event on Facebook, the proceeds of which went to the Great Ormond Street Hospital charity. You can still purchase and access the event here.
