Chef Gordon Ramsay Calls Organic Food 'Over-Priced And Boring'

Chef Gordon Ramsay quickly went from being an Ecorazzi Superstar to an Ecorazzi Bad Boy after a series of nasty events left us pretty offended. Well it looks like Gordon is once again picking a food fight, but this time with the Prince of Wales over his organic food brand.

Gordon claims that the brand is “over-priced and boring”, and told the Daily Telegraph: “I am upset with him. When I looked at his Duchy food I was gob-smacked, amazed and dumbfounded at what I discovered. Why would anyone pay that much money for one of his pies? I tried them. Just because it has a stamp and his royal crest everyone thinks it is fine, but the number of sodium’s, and the sugar content, is embarrassing.” He later adds that while he supports the profits going to charity, processed meats should not be used.

Right, so even though we’re definitely not on Team Gordon, we’d totally agree with him over the processed meat thing…IF it were true. However, Andrew Baker, CEO of Duchy Foods, has a different claim.

Baker states: “We use Soil Association specified organic ingredients as the norm and only natural flavours and colours. We never use artificial fertilisers or pesticides and our products do not contain hydrogenated fat.” Andrew later adds, “We never seek to extend the shelf life of our products by over-processing. A large percentage of our products, including our sausages, bacon and baked desserts, are delivered fresh to store on a daily basis.”

So what’s the deal here? Is Gordon just being a jerk or is Baker not telling the whole truth? Leave and comment tell us what you think!
