The Meal Gordon Ramsay Once Cooked For Princess Diana
Princess Diana remains one of the most beloved members of the British royal family, and was a big fan of food, especially fresh, light, and vibrant flavors. Prior to her passing in 1997, she had the chance to dine at one of the restaurants of then up-and-coming chef Gordon Ramsay, who says her visit was a high point in his career.
Ramsay spoke to the Daily Mail about Princess Diana's visit to his restaurant Aubergine. "I think it was a pressed leek terrine and her main course was sea bass," Ramsay recalled, sharing that his main takeaway was the complete lack of pretension the Princess showed, making no demands and ditching her security detail at the door.
"It was an amazing moment meeting such a wonderful lady," Ramsay also told You Magazine about the Princess. "She was asking me about the specials and it was an incredible six minutes at the table that you never forget. She was so gracious and as a 27-year-old cook you just think 'This lady's amazing.'"
