Gordon Ramsay may be best known for his foul-mouth and no nonsense stance in the kitchen.
But after spoiling an engagement amaze at one of his Las Vegas eateries, the outspoken chef may finally learn to hold his tongue.
Speaking at the Vegas Uncorkd food and wine festival, Ramsay relayed the embarrassing gaffe that happened at his Pub& Grill in Caesar’s Palace.
Three weeks ago, one of my maitre ds asked me if I would go over to table seven, who were celebrating their involvement, the “Hells Kitchen” star revealed, reports The Telegraph . So I said: Send two nice glasses of champagne over to them.
But his celebratory gesture was a bit premature.
When the champagne arrived, I went over to congratulate them – and he hadnt asked her!
Ramsay said the waiter, who is not a native English speaker, got his tenses confused and likely meant to say the group would be celebrating a proposal afterwards that evening.
I was like, how am I going to get out of that? said the chef.
In typical Ramsay fashion, he reportedly dedicated a serious dressing down to the waiter but didnt elaborate on how the rest of the night continued.
During the event at Caesars Palace, Ramsay also compared cook to love-making.
When you cook a risotto you should be taking your time. Inducing a risotto is like making love. You have to take you hour, expend about 25 minutes doing it absolutely right, said the chef.
He admonished cooks who speed through the processin the kitchen and in the bedroom.
I know men out there who want to rush their risotto and get onto done in two minutes– and you know who you are.
