Gordon Ramsay hits back at critics of £19 fry-up saying haters ‘can’t afford it’

Gordon Ramsay said he swore by his £19 full English breakfast – and would make it his 'last supper'.

The foul-mouthed TV chef gave critics who have complained about the cost of his grub an ear-chewing, saying: "If you're worried about the price you can't f****** afford it!''

He blasted diners who took to Twitter to roast his fry-up at London's Savoy Grill which costs £19 for two eggs, bacon, a single sausage, a tomato, a mushroom and a small gravy boat of baked beans.

Some complained it was missing components, much smaller than a typical English breakfast and cost too much money.

But Ramsay, 54, told Insider magazine he strongly disagreed with the naysayers'.

"I stand by it. I swear by it,'' he said, "And it is one meal that I would ever eat as a last supper."

He continued: "It has to be a full English breakfast with extra baked beans. And you know what? If you're worried about the price, you can't f*****g afford it.''

Other commenters were outraged by the thin gravy being spooned onto turkey Wellington at Ramsay's Bread Street Kitchen restaurant in London.

It is part of a £140 Christmas dinner which also includes smoked salmon, truffle arancini, burrata, baked scallops, and Christmas pudding.

Ramsay bit back: "There's no delicious thick gravy anywhere.So for any muppet out there that says my gravy looks thin, that's because it's a proper gravy.

"Again, if they're not 100% certain and they don't like my gravy, f*** off to James Oliver's recipe.''

Michelin-starred chef Brad Carter backed Ramsay, saying: "The best, most full-flavoured gravy can sometimes be the thinnest.''

Hells Kitchen star and MasterChef judge Ramsay, who according to wealth-calculating website Celebrity Net Worth boasts a £170m fortune, has repeatedly had a chewing over his wallet-busting grub.

A diner has also recently accused him of dishing up a "child's portion" for Sunday lunch at the Savoy Grill for £56-a-head.

It featured a single slice of beef, three roast potatoes, two carrots, plus broccoli and a Yorkshire pudding.

Customers also blasted him for charging £3.85 for toast at his Heathrow Airport Plane Food eatery.
