5 Things We Learned from Gordon Ramsay’s AMA

5 Things We Learned from Gordon Ramsay’s AMA

1. His favorite breakfast isn’t as fancy as you’d think.
Everyone thinks I have a glamorous breakfast, like a full English or eggs benedict. I keep it simple, because it reminds me of my mum. So I keep it simple, porridge, which is oatmeal. But growing up in Stratford-Upon-Avon, we kept it very simple, just oatmeal with water, salt, and oatmeal, because my dad said it would "put hair on your bollocks!’
 
2. There is something he won’t eat.
There is NOTHING worse than an overcooked brussels sprout. The smell is disgusting.
 
3. He prefers his eggs scrambled.
Over a slice of sourdough bread that has been grilled, and then sort of doused with Worcestershire sauce…
And the nice thing about scrambled eggs is that they don't have to just be breakfast - you can have them in the evening, with some nice mushrooms, some tomatoes. You can have them as a snack at midnight, or at 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
 
4. Words to live by: never trust a fat chef!
Someone said to me last night "Never trust a skinny chef."
And I said "That's bullshit, never trust a fat chef."
And she said "Why?"
And I said "Because they've eaten all the good bits.”
 
5. He’s inspiring.
Gordon didn’t just give a struggling chef good advice, he asked for his resume!
