The Amazon Echo Can Now Enlist Gordon Ramsay to Insult Your Food

By Tom Pritchard on at

If you've ever looked at Gordon Ramsay's Twitter account, you'll see that people can't stop asking him to assess the quality of their cooking. Most of the time he doesn't have very nice things to say, which only seems to spur people on. It can be tricky getting him to comment on your cooking, but now you can use the Amazon Echo and Alexa to do it for you.

Ground Control, the company that created an Alexa skill featuring former US vice president Joe Biden reading the morning news, has developed a new skill with Ramsay with the intention of making you feel bad about your culinary skills. Or to make you laugh, which is probably more likely. All you have to do is say "Alexa, ask Gordon Ramsay what he thinks of my [food]".

As you can see in the video above, the disembodied voice of Gordon Ramsay will then berate you for being such a shit chef. It's not exactly a valid critique, this is effectively a selection of pre-recorded voice clips after all, but it will scratch that itch that seemingly causes people to deliberately seek Ramsay out for some sort of masochistic thrill.

So now you can stop pestering him on Twitter, demanding to know what he thinks of your overcooked fish fingers. [Ground Control via Engadget]
