Gordon Ramsay says daughter Tilly has the makings
The 47-year-old professional chef praised the 12-year-old in an interview with the South China Morning Post. Tilly will star on her own cooking show, Tillywood, on the BBC, and Ramsay said he has enjoyed watching her cook.
"A few months ago I was watching Matilda film her new cooking show in LA," the proud father recalled. "It's called Tillywood and it comes out in early 2015. It was just fascinating watching her, saying, 'Dad's food is posh, but my food is real food,' and showing this to her friends."
"She has a TV program at 12," he lauded. "She has all the makings of a great chef. If you had put me in front of a camera at 12, even then, I would have told you to [expletive] off."
Ramsay himself has starred on a number of cooking shows, including Hell's Kitchen, The F Word and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. The chef is currently involved with Hotel Hell, MasterChef and MasterChef Junior on Fox.
