Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay used the engine of an Aston Martin Valkyrie to make a grilled cheese sandwich. 

The 57-year-old told his social media followers he intended to make a ‘grilled cheese like no other’ and I think it’s fair to say he hit that brief. 

In the clip, which Ramsay uploaded to TikTok last year, the chef says he wanted a shot at redemption after being ‘absolutely pummeled’ over an earlier grilled cheese sandwich he showcased on social media.

Ramsay promises a grilled cheese ‘like no other’ 

Walking towards the camera at a race track, Ramsay says: “Now, last time I made a grilled cheese was in Tasmania and you guys absolutely pummeled me. I took it on the chin, I’ve got thick skin. 

“So I’d like to redeem myself and give you a grilled cheese like no other.

“But this time I have an oven that is slightly more powerful – it comes in the shape of something unique. I think it’s the sexiest oven you’ve ever seen in your entire life. 

“It’s a V12. It is a 1,200 horsepower engine, 6.2 liter. And I’m going to show you how grill cheese like no freaking other.” Fair enough. 

The camera then cuts to a couple of bits of toast lying on some tin foil on a plate, which the chef then loads up with two types of cheese – I’m not a connoisseur of cheese, so the best I can tell you is that one is yellow and the other is orange.

Does the Valkyrie do a decent job?

With the Aston Martin purring away, Ramsay wraps his sandwich in the tinfoil and pops the whole thing on the engine. 

Oh and don’t worry – as Ramsay quite rightly points out – the engine is as clean as a whistle. 

He then closes over the hood of the car, a bit like he’s using a panini press, but unlike someone using a panini press, he then hops in, puts on his seatbelt, and takes the car for a, very fast, spin around the track. 

With a lap complete, he pulls over, and grabs the now thoroughly grilled sandwich from the engine before tucking in and taking a bite.

It’s hard to tell if the sandwich is cooked to chef Ramsay’s usual high standards but he looks pretty pleased with himself. 

This is not car-lover Ramsay’s first spin in an Aston Martin; as he is actually the proud owner of his own exceptionally rare Aston Martin.  

The TV chef was spotted out and about in London in an Aston Martin Valour earlier this year. 

There are just 110 of the cars in existence – and Ramsay is probably using his like a giant toastie maker.
