Aarón Sánchez's Hilarious Response To Gordon Ramsay's Chorizo Avocado Toast

Where would we be without TikTok? Although the video-sharing app has only been available in the U.S. since 2018, it's already ingrained in our social media lives — especially for those of us who love to cook. Somewhat surprisingly, culinary videos have become immensely popular on TikTok and are regularly shared by celebrity chefs, as well as amateur home cooks. Certain cooking videos have gone absolutely viral, like the slew of pancake cereal clips and, of course, the famous feta pasta video originally shared from Finland, which led to feta cheese shortages in certain areas.

One star chef that regularly shares on TikTok is Gordon Ramsay, who has amassed nearly 25 million followers on his page. A mix of jokey humor, videos of his family, and, of course, cooking clips and advice, the chef and television host recently shared a bit of the latter on his page with a video recipe for avocado toast crowned with chorizo. Garnering around 400,000 likes and more than 3,500 comments, the clip also caught the attention of celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez, Ramsay's buddy and his co-host on Fox's "MasterChef: Legends." Sánchez isn't, let's say, such a fan of this toast.

Aarón Sánchez is "highly concerned"

The social media experience has its ups and its downs, but one thing we love about it is its potential for humorous "clapbacks." A prime example of this is Sánchez's recent TikTok video response to Ramsay's TikTok recipe for an avocado toast with "Spanish flair." In Ramsay's video, he toasts a thick slice of sourdough bread in butter, layers it with some smashed avocado, adds some fresh frisée lettuce, crowns the toast with some hot chorizo sausage he's sautéed with onions and tomatoes, and finally grates some manchego cheese over the top. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?

Well, not according to Sánchez, who responded with a TikTok video of his own. "Mate, I'm looking at this chorizo avocado toast and I'm highly concerned," he notes in the video. "First of all, I don't know where this came from. Maybe you fell victim to the avocado toast phenomenon that is gripping America." The cook goes on to pick apart Ramsay's individual steps in the making of his toast, criticizing the British chef for spritzing his avocado with lemon juice instead of lime juice, for example. "This is all kinds of wrong," Sánchez summarizes at the end. It's clear that Sánchez's clapback is all in good fun — and, frankly, it's hilarious. Will Ramsay respond in video form? We can only hope so.
