Just a week before The Peak had the opportunity to meet the celebrity chef, I was in London trying to get a reservation to dine at The River Restaurant by Gordan Ramsay in The Savoy. Fully booked, as usual, I didn’t fancy having lunch during at 4pm-5pm slot which was available. So I gave it a missed this time round.
To my utter delight, The Peak was invited for a masterclass with Gordan Ramsay. My nerves got the best of me, as I thought about the million ways I could screw up a Knickerbrocker Glory. I am confident in the kitchen, cooking dinner 2-3 times a week. But just the presence of Ramsay made me forget all my cooking skills. It doesn’t help that I’m a fan, having watched all the seasons and episodes of Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares.

Here comes the judging session. I thought there would be flying spoons and cream. Thankfully Chef Ramsay was lenient with us.

This is the first time Gordan Ramsay made a special appearance at Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill at Sunway Resort Hotel.
Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill at Sunway Resort Hotel officially opened in June 2022, marking its first entry into Malaysia. It’s the first Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill location outside of the United Kingdom.
During his 24-hour visit, Chef Ramsay was in awe of his young Malaysian culinary team as he spent an intimate moment in the kitchen raising their spirits. Throughout the day, Chef Ramsay shared stories, experiences and a lot of jokes with members of the media and our service team. He also held an exclusive cooking masterclass in the restaurant’s kitchen – much to the delight of everyone.
Later that evening, Chef Ramsay together with Sunway Group’s Founder and Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah AO, graced a private cocktail event in the restaurant. He met invited guests which included ambassadors, royalties, celebrities, notable corporate industry players and the media. Some of Gordon Ramsay’s signature dishes were served in bite-sized portions including his Classic Beef Wellington, Beef Tartare and 64% Manjari Chocolate Tart.
Gordon Ramsay said, “It has been wonderful to be here in Malaysia to celebrate the opening of Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill. A stunning dining room and bar, within the fantastic Sunway Resort Hotel. To see the amazing, local culinary brigade in action and meet Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr Jeffrey Cheah and some of our already loyal customers was an opportunity I was not going to miss. I would like to thank our Malaysian guests and Sunway Partners, and wish everyone a Happy Christmas and in advance, a prosperous Chinese New Year.”
