Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, 55, appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where he talked about the most terrifying culinary experience of his life. Gordon told host Kelly, 39, that he was terrified at the prospect of cooking up two of the world’s most powerful leaders at the time.
Talk-show host Kelly began by asking Gordon to name “the most intimidating person” he had cooked for.
Gordon replied: “I remember being invited to Downing Street to cook for Tony Blair and President Putin.
I honestly did it. I was thinking ‘Can you imagine if you poisoned these two with food.’
“Can you imagine what kind of filth I would get if I brought down these bosses.”

Gordon also appears to have taken sous chefs Mark Sargent from Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurant and Angela Hartnell from Petros to help him prepare lunch.
During an exotic dining experience, Putin and Blair engaged to a menu that included tomato with golden caviar of white sturgeon, a mosaic of chicken and pork knuckle, grilled fillet of sea bass on fresh mashed potatoes with white asparagus in red wine sauce, and golden fudge.
The notoriously difficult chef also told Kelly that the most famous person he had ever taken pleasure in cooking was the late Princess Diana, who had visited his restaurant in Chelsea.
Recalling the “amazing moment,” he called “gracious” Diana a “wonderful lady” and noted that it was “six wonderful minutes on the table” he will never forget.

The star previously discussed cooking for Putin on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in July 2018.
During the interview, Gordon referred to the food, saying, “If I had asked for it, I’d be in trouble, right?”
In response, Stephen ominously referred to Gordon’s poisoning, joking: “Something bad might feed you!”
Putin has fallen out with the British government after being accused of poisoning in the past, including Alexander Litvinenko, who died in 2006 after fleeing to the UK and starting work for MI6.
Gordon admitted that he was under a lot of pressure to carry out everything perfectly during the meal.
“Great lunch,” he told Stephen. And that kind of lunch you think, ‘****k, don’t overcook the sea bass, don’t overcook the sea bass!
“Be sure that the spices are ready. Quite exhausting on the nerves, but at the same time useful … “
However, Gordon went on to reveal that he could breathe a sigh of relief at the end of the meal, saying, “By the way, I love the food. Because it’s a tough cookie.”
