Gordon Ramsay Faces Criticism For Planning To Open 'Authentic' Asian Restaurant

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is facing criticism...??After announcing plans to open what he calls an ‘authentic’ Asian restaurant named Lucky Cat in London this summer.??In a press release, Ramsay said the restaurant will have a late-night lounge and drinking dens inspired by 1930’s Tokyo and other far east locations.

??Ramsay will work closely with executive chef Ben Orpwood who will ‘lead the charge’ on the restaurant’s ‘inventive menu’.??The release went on to say Orpwood has ‘extensive experience in the realm of Asian cuisine’;??Including being the executive chef at ‘Sexy Fish’,’ another Asian restaurant in London.??But the announcement led to backlash on social media.

??One Twitter user wrote: “Ramsay reckons he can successfully open “an authentic Asian” restaurant in LONDON with a white head chef.”??“I would love for @GordonRamsay to actually NOT join the ranks of the many white people that are capitalizing on Asian culture without putting equal effort into giving Asians seats at the table of equity.” said another.??And one user sarcastically remarked “Apparently asians have been doing it wrong for the past 5000 YEARS!!”??However, others took offense to the notion that only an Asian chef could cook Asian food.

??“This idea that only an asian chef can run an authentic asian restaurant is racist.” said one user.

??Going on to say “It implies that other races are incapable of learning techniques and traditions of the food.”??Ramsey has yet to address the criticism.
