Renowned television personality and esteemed chef with Michelin stars, Gordon Ramsay, expressed his admiration for our beloved local social media chef, Khairulaming in a quick recipe video on May 18. 

Khairulaming, also known as Khairul Amin Kamarulzaman, excitedly shared the news that the celebrity chef collaborated with him on TikTok, creating a captivating duet video featuring one of Khairul’s recipes.

“Guys, Gordon Ramsay [made a] duet video with my cooking,” he said excitedly.

Widely recognized for his brutally honest critiques on reality shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay has now redirected his attention towards reacting to various cooking videos on TikTok, often sharing more subdued and humorous comments.

For this particular review, Ramsay selected Khairul’s rendition of a recipe from his own latest cookbook, Unchartered, titled ‘Burnt Sugar Steamed Pudding.’ 

Opening the video with a warm greeting to Malaysia, Ramsay exclaims, “Hello, Malaysia! We love Malaysia.” 

He proceeds to compliment Khairul’s preparation of the burnt sugar steamed pudding while providing commentary on the instructions.

Amidst the cooking process, Ramsay humorously remarks, “Yeah, knead that butter in. Now, get a spoon… We need to get you a bigger spoon for Christmas; that’s a tiny spoon!” teasing our local chef. He playfully adds, “There are a few lumps in [that batter], kid!” as he light-heartedly critiques the consistency.

Concluding the video, Ramsay, who boasts an impressive 37 million TikTok followers, praises Khairul with a “well done” and extends an offer to demonstrate the recipe again when he visits Malaysia the following week.

As of writing time, the TikTok video has gained more than two million viewers and more than 300,000 comments.
