One of Gordon Ramsay’s ‘signature’ desserts has split opinion on social media with one person saying it’s ‘not really a looker’:
The chocolate tofu pudding is served at the TV chef’s Mayfair restaurant called Lucky Cat which specialises in Asian cuisine.
It will set diners back £10 ($13) and is essentially a chocolate mousse covered with two thin scrapings of tofu… then topped with what looks like some brown-coloured crepe paper (we’re sure it’s not).
Sharing a video of the dish being made in his kitchens, 53-year-old Gordon wrote: “The signature chocolate tofu at Lucky Cat by Gordon Ramsay…. absolutely beautiful!!” Hmm, let the people judge that.
The clip has racked up over 26,000 reactions with more than 5,000 comments from people who had differing opinions on the pudding.
One person wrote: “I think 2020 has done something to Gordon Ramsay….. are you ok? That looks like a dogs chew toy on a pile of dirt. I’m sure it tastes good, but your claim of “absolutely beautiful” I think not.”
Another added: “Oh my! Perhaps the most unappetizing and unappealing dessert ever. First the poop in the middle, then covered by a layer of what looks like fat, and topped with a piece of pork crackling. I usually love his creations…not this one.”

Someone who did like the looks of it commented: “Looks amazing, beautifully presented. That’s made me hungry!”
Someone else simply said: “If 2020 was a dessert…” Another unimpressed fan said: “Oooh, not sure how appetising that looks, I can’t imagine putting it in my mouth….at least it comes with a bag to put it in if you don’t want it!”
This isn’t the first time one of Gordon’s dishes has been slated online. Only last month his fry up was roasted by people who called it ‘a complete and utter rip off’.
Ramsay shared a photo of the ‘most amazing full English’, telling fans it would be available to order at the Savoy Grill – his restaurant at the Savoy Hotel in London – from 21 September.
On the plate you’ll see one solitary sausage, half a tomato, a single mushroom, two fried eggs and some bacon (an inexplicable amount, considering what else is on the plate?! Not that we’re complaining).
