Gordon Ramsay makes shocking revelation of attempting to go vegan after years of mocking it
Despite making fun of vegans and vegetarians for as long as he can remember, Gordon Ramsay has shocked everyone with his announcement to try veganism.
Fate is a funny thing and it is strange how inevitable fate is no matter how much you resist it. Gordon Ramsay has admitted that he is ready to try and follow a Vegan diet.
The three Michelin star chef is yet to explain the reason behind the sudden change of heart after many years of dissing Vegans and Vegan food. In a low-key tweet, the Masterchef host wrote, "Going to give this #vegan thing a try ... Yes, guys, you heard that right. Gx".
He uploaded the comments with a photograph of what looks to be a vegan pizza at his latest venture, Gordon Ramsay Street Pizza which is located in London. One of the dishes at the new St Paul's restaurant is a charred aubergine pizza. Its toppings include toasted pine nuts, wild garlic pesto, and tomato.
The chef's new love towards veganism and vegan cuisine comes as a shocker to his fans given how he would often mock vegans and vegetarians. His tweet even received a hilarious response from PETA.
Oh, dear, Gordon. We've heard that old line before. While you're spending time mocking the future #vegan we're betting you one day become, most chefs are exploring healthy, animal- & environment-friendly #PlantBased dishes.— PETA (@peta) February 2, 2018
In the year 2007, Gordon even teased Girls Aloud star Cheryl when she and her bandmates came on his TV show. As Cheryl told Gordon about her dietary requirements, he said, "Didn’t you get the message? Vegetarians aren’t welcome here."
In an interview with the Mirror, Gordon joked, "My biggest nightmare would be if the kids ever came up to me and said 'Dad, I'm a vegetarian.' Then I would sit them on the fence and electrocute them." This comment from the well-renowned chef drew the attention of longtime vegetarian Paul McCartney who offered to school Gordon on the advantages of vegetarianism.
Clearly, McCartney's lessons were worth something since Gordon seems to be realizing the value of his words now.
In a typical Gordon Ramsay fashion, he added fuel to the fire in the year 2016 when he joked about how he was allergic to vegans in response to a tweet asking him what he was allergic to.
His supposed to be funny tweets garnered heavy backlash especially amongst animal rights activists who accused him of taking the subject of animal exploitation too lightly.
