In his new book, Marcus Samuelsson claims that Gordon Ramsay is a racist and that he once referred to Marcus as a f**king black b**tard. Wow. I love Marcus so I am totally willing to believe pretty much anything he says. he said the incident happened when Marcus had gone to cook at a restaurant in London and Marcus had given an interview and not named Ramsay in a list of chefs he admired. Ramsay called Marcus on the phone and called him what I wrote above and then screamed at him for five minutes about how next time he ever talks about chefs he admires he needs to list Ramsay. Ramsay denies the claim, but the lawyers at the book publisher said it was verified.
