Gordon Ramsay recalls cooking for Vladimir Putin and Tony Blair and exclaiming, ‘Get me out of here!’

GORDON RAMSAY has revealed that Russian President Vladimir Putin and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair were the most intimidating people he ever cooked for.

Gordon Ramsay, 55, appeared on the Kelly Clarkson Show in the United States, where he discussed the most terrifying cooking experience of his life.

Gordon admitted to host Kelly, 39, that the prospect of cooking for two of the world’s most powerful leaders at the time terrified him.

Kelly, the host of the Talk Show, began by asking Gordon to name the “most intimidating person” for whom he had ever prepared a meal.

“I recall being invited to cook for Tony Blair and President Putin at No. 10 Downing Street,” Gordon responded.

“I did, in fact, s*** myself.”

‘Imagine if you food poisoned these two,’ I thought to myself.

“Can you imagine the s*** I’d get if I took down these presidents?”

“It was a truly extraordinary experience,” the chef added later.

I was standing between them to say hello when they asked about the English asparagus, and I thought to myself, “Get me the f*** out of here, I’m done.”

The Hell’s Kitchen star continued by saying that the lack of space and basic kitchen utensils at Downing Street surprised him.

“After I was done with them, I had to go upstairs and cook for the two first ladies in this tiny little flat,” he explained.

“You were required to bring your own pots and pans.

You’d expect a proper kitchen on Downing Street, but we were bringing in pots and pans.”

Gordon reportedly enlisted the help of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay sous chef Mark Sargeant and Pétrus sous chef Angela Hartnell to prepare the lunch.

Putin and Blair dined on tomato consommé with albino sturgeon golden caviar, mosaic of chicken and ham knuckle, roasted slice of sea bass on crushed new potatoes with white asparagus in a red wine sauce, and treacle tart during the strange dining experience.

The chef also revealed to Kelly that the most high-profile person he had ever had the pleasure of cooking for was the late Princess Diana, who paid a visit to his Chelsea restaurant.

He described Diana as a “wonderful lady” and said it was an “incredible six minutes at the table” when recalling the “amazing moment.”
