Gordon Ramsay is notorious for his merciless mocking of vegetarians, vegans, and all non-meat eaters. However, it’s possible that he may now be joining their ranks and considering switching to a plant-based lifestyle, if only for a short time.

On Twitter, Chef Ramsay declared his intentions to the world, saying that he was going to “give this vegan thing a try.” He didn’t provide any specifics on a timetable or how he planned to do it. However, given that Ramsay has plenty of Michelin Stars under his belt, it shouldn’t be too hard for him to come up with a plethora of plant-based meals to add some variety to his new diet.
Celebrities going vegan isn’t something new, as Wacka Flocka Flame, Kyrie Irving, and other big names have all recently stopped eating meat. But it’s out of left field for a man who’s insulted vegetarians as much as Chef Ramsay to switch over, which makes his announcement all the more interesting.
Of course, some on Twitter were quick to point it out and challenge the veracity of his statement.
My boy got hacked.

There’s also the question of whether a vegan Gordon Ramsay dish is happening or the chef really is going plant-based. His photo is that of a pizza, which alludes to an earlier tweet he posted of a pizza oven. Ramsay hinted that something is “cooking” in London, meaning that the vegan pie could be a new addition to its menu. Or is it referring to him eating plant-based while at home, which is in London?
We’ll have to keep an eye on his social feeds to see if Chef Ramsay really is going vegan, and if so, for how long he makes it without a touch of Beef Wellington.
