Gordon Ramsay never shies away from sharing his true feelings, and he recently got brutally honest about a few food trends that he thinks need to go away.
FOAMS – Gordon was quick to say “foams” as the first trend he disagrees with. Be strategic with your foam-ified choices, chefs”. Gordon added, “Sometimes they look like toxic scum in a stagnant pool. It was not very good.”
WAGYU – Look at the menu of any number of fine-dining restaurants or steakhouses, and you’ll see Wagyu, a high-end cut of beef that comes from Japanese cattle and is known for its tenderness and marbling. Gordon is over its ubiquity. He explained why, saying, “Because it’s a special cut. It needs to be treated with a little bit of respect. Everywhere you go now, there’s f*cking Wagyu meatballs. Preserve it a little bit. Rest it. Allow it to become special.”
TRUFFLE OIL – Gordon has some strong feelings about truffle oil. “The worst thing, for me, is truffle oil. That thing needs to be let down. When [people] use it, they use the same f*cking top [as any other oil], so they pour it, and it comes out in abundance. This thing needs to be let out in tiny, tiny, little [amounts].”
