So it's safe to say you can expect brutal honesty from Gordon, the man who coined the term "idiot sandwich." The TV chef, who is said to have earned $54million last year alone, has now given his three golden rules on what to (not) order in when dining out.
1. The specials board
Your waiter will draw your eye to the tantalising morsels lovingly chalked on the specials board, but is it all its cracked up to be? According to Ramsay, this a strong "no". This is particularly the case when the specials board is rather long.
"Specials are there to disappear throughout the evening," he said. "When they list 10 specials, that’s not special."
2. Suspicious boasts
Many restaurants like to personalise their dishes. This, the chef explains, should raise a red flag.
"When they turn around and tell me it is the 'famous red lasagne,' who made it famous?" he asks.
