Gordon Ramsey takes on Singapore’s top hawker chefs in PR stunt

Gordon Ramsay stuntBritish celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey is taking on the cooks of Singapore’s top hawker stalls in a PR stunt organised by SingTel.

Ramsay was invited by a collection of Singaporean food bloggers to join hawker centre cooks in a culinary cook-off in a stunt called SingTel’s Hawker Heroes.

The three chosen hawkers will be selected by the results of a SingTel food poll hosted on, voted by the Singaporean public.

The voting site goes live today, Tuesday 25 June at 8.00am, Singapore time.

Ramsay said: “The people of Singapore want to put their favourite hawker food to a Michelin star test. Now many of them think that hawker food is deserving of more recognition. Frankly, I’m not an expert on Singapore food; I’m not sure if it’s as good as Singaporeans actually say it is! Trust me, I’ve got to see this for myself, and see what they have to offer.”
