People Love This Chef Telling Gordon Ramsay He Can't Cook Thai Food

He Chef Ramsay'ed Chef Ramsay.

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has gained a reputation via his Twitter account for knowing what is good food and what is just awful.

However, over the past few days, an old clip of Ramsay getting some harsh criticism for his cooking has spread around Twitter.

The clip is taken from Season 5 of his TV show The F Word, released in 2009. Ramsay visits a Thai temple in London to cook for Buddhist monks. You can watch the full clip below.

Before going to the temple, Ramsay meets with a Thai restaurant chef called Chang to get some guidance.

After learning a dish, Ramsay cooks his own "quick and easy" version of pad thai.

Initially, Chef Chang seems happy with Ramsay's process.

But then he tries the pad thai.

And it all goes wrong.

"This is not pad thai."

After it was shared on Twitter, people started turning the video into a meme.

@sydneeW_ @jrae97 You can tell he didn't even know where to begin with Gordon Ramsay


When Ramsey meets himself but the Asian version 😂😂😂 https://t.co/PkCG1storQ

And basically just dragged white chefs for their ignorance of non-Western food.

He looked at him with the FULL ANGST of colonial past & present 😂😂😂 https://t.co/UNYgM1uFQD

When you taste your traditional dish after the colonisers have gentrified it

Let’s take this frame by frame 1. - Chef in the back looking like “you gon try this yt boys food fr?” 2. - The face he made after the food hit his tastebuds 😭 3. - How was the food? “HUH?!” 🤣 4. - Chef in the back turned away like “oh he bout to ROAST yo ass” https://t.co/2N8rDh1ion

People also brought up the time Ramsay was taught how to cook beef rendang by a similarly critical Malay cook.

i love how in all of gordon ramsay’s entire career on television the ONLY two times he was bossed around was by a thai uncle & a malaysian auntie 😂😂😂 https://t.co/3wSNTaPK5O

Maybe Ramsay should try making chicken rendang.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Ramsay to see if he has any thoughts on his pad thai attempt.
