Gordon Ramsay is famous for 2 things – his highly acclaimed restaurants plus cookbooks as well as his fiery temper and profanity on television. Longtime viewers would be familiar with his excessive cursing in “Hell’s Kitchen” telling people that they are an “idiot sandwich”.
Well, we too have our very own version of Gordon Ramsay, minus the swearing but his words are just as unfiltered (remember his dick jokes?); Uncle Roger. If you’re unfamiliar with Uncle Roger (which rock have you been living under), he is the online persona of a Diaspora Malaysian stand-up comedian, Nigel Ng.
Uncle Roger has been known to slander countless of Western chefs for their rendition of Asian cuisine, or the fried rice dish, specifically. From Hersha Patel, to the environmentally conscious celebrity chef Jamie Oliver himself. We are at times amazed at the ability of western chefs who have cooked up a hot plate of Asian fried rice, a staple in most parts of Asia.
On that note, one British chef managed to nail the dish and guess who? the king Gordon Ramsay, himself. Even Uncle Roger approved it in one of his review videos on his YouTube channel, from a couple of years ago. He stated his wish of a collaboration with the ferocious chef at the end of it, “Niece and nephew, go tell Uncle Gordon on Twitter, on Instagram, on TikTok, on everything, Uncle Roger wants to collab with him.”
He did express his collaboration wish well when Uncle Roger uploaded a TikTok video with Gordon Ramsay! In the video, he is standing next to the British chef, donning his signature bright orange collared shirt along with the “Asian uncle” belt phone holster; while Ramsay looking sleek in his white chef’s shirt.
He jokingly said in the video, “Hello niece and nephew, the wok f**k boy, Uncle Gordon“, to which Ramsay replied, “F**k you.” He labelled Ramsay as the wok f**k boy in his review video back then because he has more than one wok, and he called Ramsay “Uncle Gordon” to show his respect towards the chef for being able to cook fried rice and knowing his Asian ingredients. The TikTok was captioned with “Finally met the king @gordonramsayofficial. And then we bitched about Jamie Oliver for 15 minutes.“
Finally met the king @gordonramsayofficial. And then we bitched about Jamie Oliver for 15 minutes 😂
Don’t we just love this savage collaboration?
