Gordon fucking Ramsay is like a ‘pig in shit’, or so he says of his fucking self.
The 50-year-old Scot, who has quite the taste for expletives – and the finer things in life – has been on screens for what feels like forever.
Hell’s Kitchen, The F Word, and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares – you name it and this celebrity chef has been there and done it, even if it did involve the barbaric bullying of countless shitty chefs.
As you can probably imagine Gordon has stuffed his gullet with food after food after food – I mean, the guy’s job is literally just food. However there is one thing Ramsay wouldn’t put anywhere near his mouth.
Blood pudding? Tuna eyeballs? White ant egg soup? Nope. He’d launch them to the back of his throat in a heartbeat – but airplane grub? No fucking way. Not for Gordon.
Speaking to Refinery 29, the multi-Michelin star winner said:
There’s no fucking way I eat on planes.
I worked for airlines for ten years, so I know where this food’s been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got on board.
Apparently back in his younger years, the mardy chef worked as a culinary advisor for a certain airline but, as you can probably guess, it was a helluva lot grimmer than you’d like to think.
Though he didn’t go into much more detail in the interview, he did tell listeners what they should eat before a flight.
Instead you should opt for a classic:
Nice selection of Italian meats, a little glass of red wine, some sliced apples or pears with some parmesan cheese, I’m like a pig in shit.
Ramsay has made quite the name for himself as a man who says it like it is, sometimes a little overboard – but a pig in shit?
‘Italian meats, red wines, and sliced fruit’? You want to try a fucking mega spice box and wash it down with a litre of Pepsi Max if you think a pig in shit is eating that pal.
