Gordon Ramsay reignited a decades-old feud with chef Jamie Oliver in a TikTok video.
In it, Ramsay suggests Oliver stole his recipes.
Oliver and Ramsay's feud began in the 2000s, though it's seemingly cooled off in the last few years.
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay jokingly reignited a decades-old feud with fellow TV chef Jamie Oliver in a TikTok video suggesting Oliver steals other people's recipes.
In the video, posted to daughter Tilly Ramsay's TikTok account, Ramsay stands beneath a message that reads "I bet you are one of those chefs that just steal other people's recipes." Ramsay points to himself, shakes his head and wags a finger, and dances in a circle to reveal Oliver's book stuffed into the back of his pants.
Ramsay posted the same video to Instagram with the caption: "When you let @tillyramsay do your social media. Kid….my secrets out."
For years, Ramsay and Oliver have traded public barbs. In 2009, Ramsay told TMZ that the last time he complained about a meal was at "Jamie Oliver's restaurant."
Years later, Ramsay criticized Oliver for not attending the opening of his Jamie's Italian restaurant in Hong Kong.
"Two British chefs, Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay, rubbing shoulders together in Hong Kong." he told CNBC in 2015. "At least I'm here, I came to my opening, right? If you're going to open a restaurant in Hong Kong at least turn up."
Oliver reportedly doesn't like attending his own openings because, he said, it takes attention away from the staff.
Ramsay criticized Oliver's promotion of healthy eating. "It's all very well to spout off now about sugar tax and supermarkets," Ramsay told Radio Times in 2017. "None of that was spoken about when he was label-slapping with Sainsbury's for ten years."
"And no disrespect," Ramsay continued, "but we're chefs, not politicians. When you breathe that stuff down the public's throat and say, 'I'm leaving if we have Brexit,' then, I'm sorry, the door stands open. Stand for what you say. Sadly, the only time he opens his mouth is when he's got something to promote."
Oliver told the Radio Times in his own interview later that year that he would "take the high ground."
"I wish him all the best, and all success. Good luck to him. But we have both got kids, and I don't know what sort of example we're setting if we're arguing like we're in the playground," he told the outlet.
Despite the years of animosity, the two supposedly quashed the feud in 2019. In an appearance on "The Jonathan Ross Show," Ramsay said the two were friends and even vacationed together. The detente happened to coincide with the collapse of Oliver's business. In 2019, he was forced to close 22 of his 25 UK restaurants, leaving more than 1,000 employees jobless.
"Listen, that was devastating," Ramsay told Ross. "I don't think anyone likes to revel in that kind of failure. And also yeah, the bottom line is, he's a great guy, great chef, and it was sad to see, you know, him disappear overnight."
Jo Ramsey, head of PR for Ramsey Global Studios, told Insider Ramsay's latest TikTok was meant to be a joke.
"If you know the long history between Jamie and Gordon, you will also know this was clearly all in good humor and nothing more," she said.
Jamie Oliver did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
