It seems as though the feud between FOX‘s Hell’s Kitchen chef Gordon Ramsay and his rival chef, Jamie Oliver has been reignited. During one of Gordon’s other television shows Jamie claims the Michelin chef was ‘disrespectful’ towards Indian chefs. Keep reading for more details!
As if Hell’s Kitchen on FOX didn’t have enough drama for Gordon Ramsay, apparently he is stirring up emotions all over the place with his other shows as well. During one of Gordon Ramsay’s travel shows he went to India where he referred to an Indian guru as “Father Christmas” and repeatedly used obscenities during the UK series “Gordon’s Great Escape”. This was enough to spark anger in Jamie Oliver, who earlier this year had publicly stated that Gordon Ramsay’s wife was a better cook than Gordon – to which Gordon Ramsay replied saying Oliver was just a cook while he was indeed a chef.
Jamie Oliver called Gordon Ramsay disrespectful for his comments towards the Indian guru and went on to say “When you love telly and cooking as much as I do, you realize that the most wonderful thing in the world is the ethnic mix we are blessed with and are able to cook with. I wouldn’t have minded if he had done a good job, but he didn’t. He just wasn’t respectful. That is the most important thing when you visit another culture. You shut your mouth, you listen and you smile and you suck it all up and you take it all home. You don’t judge. You don’t start shouting at people. How dare he do that? There is a humbleness that you need to have.”
With that said, it has also been reported that Jamie Oliver was looking to do some cooking in India himself and was upset that Gordon Ramsay got the chance before he did – could he just be jealous?
