    Default Gordon Ramsay: 'Food at Buckingham Palace is prehistoric shit'

    His foul-mouthed outbursts have so far been restricted to bumbling waiters and hapless chefs.

    But now it seems no one is safe from Gordon Ramsay's exacting standards.

    The fiery television chef has directed his latest four-letter tirade at the Queen, accusing her serving 'prehistoric' food at Buckingham Palace that tasted like 's***'.


    Not impressed: Gordon Ramsay told American TV host Jay Leno he was left with a bad taste in his mouth after visiting Buckingham Palace
    Ramsay, 41, was made an Order of the British Empire for services to the hospitality industry in 2006 and insisted on having his investiture in Scotland.

    But he said that a subsequent visit to Buckingham Palace left him less than impressed by Royal culinary efforts.

    In customary fashion, Ramsay has now delivered a broadside worthy of his television series Kitchen Nightmares.

    'Lovely': Ramsay says he enjoyed meeting the Queen, but not the culinary feast on offer

    His abusive comments came on primetime U.S. television during an interview with chat show host Jay Leno on Thursday's Tonight show.

    'You don't actually get to know who's cooking for the Queen - but I'd never employ him because the food was s***,' Ramsay told the audience. 'I'd never give him a job.'

    'The food was s*** but she was lovely. Unfortunately you've got to go through the ceremony with the canapés which are just absolutely, shockingly s***.

    'They looked prehistoric, like 300 years old, at Buckingham Palace.'

    Ramsay then had the chat show audience in stitches as he told them how he struggled to swallow the Palace's duck liver pate. 'It was dotted with cranberries - not very nice,' he said.

    'I was trying to get rid of it as I was approaching her because this thing was taking forever to chew. You couldn't spit it out on the carpet, for God's sake.'

    The news is bound to anger the Palace's head chef Mark Flanagan, who is known to be as volatile as Ramsay himself.

    He was appointed to the £50,000-a-year job in 2002. On one occasion he lost his temper during a banquet for Russia's then-president Vladimir Putin, and shook a kitchen porter so violently when he failed a basic task that the man needed medical attention.

    He is also said to have grabbed a 21-year-old footman by the throat and pinned him against a wall after the servant ignored his commands.

    Nine Buckingham Palace cooks have quit over rows with Mr Flanagan, with one describing him as 'Gordon Ramsay without Gordon's sublime talent'.

    A Palace spokesman said: ' Gordon was invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace. I would direct you to the comments he made immediately afterwards in which he said he enjoyed the food there.'

    Earlier this week Ramsay came under attack himself, from Sir Paul McCartney.

    The singer, who has not eaten meat for 30 years, told Sainsbury's magazine Ramsay was 'stupid' for his comments against vegetarians.

    The chef had claimed his 'biggest nightmare' would be to discover one of his kids were vegetarian.

    I trust his judgment. Maybe the Queen needs to conduct some interviews for a new Chef. If Gordon says it was shit--it was SHIT!

    Hell, I wouldn't care if he said broiled elephant cock in an alligator piss sauce was divine--I'd eat it and smile lovingly at him while doing so.

    Gordon Ramsay is my MAN. (Well, right next to Robert Downey, Jr., but he's neck-and-neck!)

    The food can't be as prehistoric as the queen herself.

    I love Gordon Ramsey. He cracks me up!

    If done properly, the sea bass with mushrooms sounds good, but I wouldn't eat the duck or much else on that menu, maybe a few snow peas.

    I find it interesting that the sauvigion, pinot noir and muscat they serve are all Australian/New Zealand wines.
