An ongoing feud between Gordon Ramsay and chef Marco Pierre White has raised its ugly head again, with Ramsay saying he would switch channels to avoid White, saying he looked “like someone from the Taliban”.
“Having been there and worked with him I know that he was an amazing chef, so when I see him philosophising, as opposed to cooking his arse off – being the real Marco – I find it a little bit sad,” he said.
Ramsay worked for White back in the 1980s when he was apparently reduced to tears while working for him.
Later he staged the theft of the reservations book from Aubergine in London, where he was then head chef, and blamed White.
White took over the UK series of Hell’s Kitchen from Ramsay in 2007. In 2009 he appeared in the US version of The Chopping Block which is about to be seen in Australian on GEM.
Last year White said, “Everything Gordon does is contrived, unnatural, derivative. He does as he’s told. He’s not original. Unlike Gordon, I’m not in the business of swearing, belittling and putting people down.”
