Greek grandmother criticizes Gordon Ramsay’s cooking skills; He says Santorini capers are the best in the world (VIDEO)
A grandmother from the island of Santorini hilariously gave international chef Gordon Ramsay some of his own medicine; a bad review for the salsa verde he was making for a shrimp dish.
The hilarious clip, which comes from an episode of ITV Gordon, Gino and Fred go Greek, starts off with Ramsay saying “this is going to be delicious” as he beats the ingredients for his sauce as dark-faced onlookers; Grandmother, performer, and Fred Siriex are patiently waiting for tea time! Meanwhile, Italian TV chef Gino D’Acampo rushes to give Gordon more ingredients: red and white vinegar.
Gordon then throws in a handful of Santorini capers which he declares to be “some of the best in the world” – D’Acampo items, proclaiming Sicilian capers as the best in the world. An unsurprising response from D’Acampo after Ramsay notoriously told him in the first episode that Greek food is better than Italian! MDR
“Ela yiayia! Gordon Ramsay calls the grandmother to taste his salsa verde.
At the first spoonful, the grandmother gives her a blank stare before D’Acampo intervenes: “She doesn’t like that” with laughter all around.
The grandmother still laughs without saying a word. “She doesn’t know what to say.” adds D’Acampo.
“Too much salt!” the yiayia declares, eliciting more laughter at what sounded like one of the very few negative reviews Ramsay must have received in his life.
The hilarious clip ends with a lot of laughs and Gordon Ramsay admits he underestimated the salty taste of capers and maybe put on too much.
“Today there is one thing we have all learned. Even the gods can make mistakes! proclaims D’Acampo.
