At the end of his “7-Elevenington” TikTok, Josh Scherer asks, “Gordon, why don’t you love me?” Gordon Ramsay has an answer for Scherer in a duet video the world-class TV chef posted to TikTok on March 18.
“Beef jerky? Come on, Josh, stop being a jerk,” Ramsay yells in the duet as he watches Scherer make his demi-glace. “What are you trying to do? Destroy four decades of craft,” the 54-year-old chef asks while watching Scherer purée his hot dog paste in a food processor. As the Wellington came out of the deep fryer, Ramsay declared that it resembled a Wellington boot covered in cow dung. And when Scherer bites into his creation, Ramsay insists that he go see a doctor immediately. The viewer comes away from Ramsay’s response thinking he never called Scherer an “idiot sandwich” because it would have been too kind.
This back-and-forth over Wellington continues a “beef” that started last summer, when Ramsay trashed Mythical Kitchen’s ramen grilled cheese on TikTok. Scherer struck back on Twitter, mocking a Ramsay grilled cheese video. The commenters on Ramsay’s Wellington TikTok duet seemed to recognize that this battle between Ramsay and Scherer — or rather, Gordon and Josh — was all in good fun. This may even be the start of a celebrity-chef friendship. As one TikTok commenter said, “I love that they’re on a first-name basis now.”
