Be careful what you wish for
Anyone who’s familiar enough with Gordon Ramsay to want the star chef’s feedback on their cooking knows exactly what they’re in for. The star chef is known to be fair in his assessments, but also brutally, colorfully, profanely honest in his criticisms.
We’ve seen it on Hell’s Kitchen, we’ve seen it on Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, and now we’re seeing it in his most public forum yet – Twitter.
People sent photos of their culinary creations to the chef in the hopes that he would offer his opinion. And he certainly did just that, offering up a mix of praise, encouragement, and his trademark disbelief that some people could be THIS bad at cooking.

That said, he wasn’t sparing with the praise when it was called for, which, among the submissions, wasn’t all that often:
(Mental note: If you’re trying to escape the wrath of Ramsay, go with beef wellington. He seems to have a soft spot for it.)
