Gordon Ramsay is one of the world's most renowned chefs! He's known for cooking up classics like Beef Wellington, fish and chips, burgers, and risotto. Of course, if you watch his reality cooking competition shows like Masterchef and Hell's Kitchen, he tends to poke fun at vegetarians and vegans. But now we find out that he's not against eating a plant-based diet. So what changed? Well, his family and their passion for nutritious eating. This somewhat new journey began 8 years ago, and he now carries that passion into his restaurants and at home.
He explains: "From a restaurateur's point of view, I could see a more creative demand for it [plant-based cooking]. So it keeps chefs on their toes. And then when I got to delve into the detail of what that movement meant, I had gone on to oat milk." Backing off true dairy products became an easy decision. "With the sort of demanding times in my schedule, cutting dairy out of my diet on a day-to-day basis was absolutely crucial."
Gordon says that while his restauranteur lifestyle is pretty jam-packed, he often turns to smoothies and iced coffees with oat milk to keep him fueled while on-the-go. At his Hell's Kitchen restaurant, he offers items like spring onion soup or white bean cashew stew, among other options that allow the vegan and vegetarian options to be as extensive as the ones that are a la carte. These menu options are something that Gordon plans to continue experimenting with across his restaurants. Ramsay also said that "getting creative with plant-based is equally as important as cooking fish or meat. And he think giving the customers the balance on offer, but it needs to match the standard."
