'Ramsay is a one-trick pony'

Antony Worrall Thompson has said that Gordon Ramsay is a "one-trick pony" as a chef.

The former Ready Steady Cook star told Waitrose Food Illustrated that Ramsay is limited in the type of food he prepares.

Thompson said: "Gordon knows Michelin food but I have a feeling he hasn't got any depth.

"I don't think he reads cookbooks like they were novels like I tend to do. He's a one-trick pony."

He added that Ramsay had apologised to him at the Birmingham Good Food Show earlier this year after calling him a "squashed Bee Gee" who "can't cook to save his life" in the past.
