Gordon to Gino in Athens: “Stop calling it a kebab”

Gino D'Acampo Gordon Ramsay

Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Road Trip across Greece was full of hilarious moments as they ventured to Crete, Santorini, Sparta, Athens and Meteora.

In one scene, the trio visit an Athenian souvlatzidiko, a specialist shop in skewered meats known as souvlaki.

Very quickly, a war of words ensued between one of the chefs of the shop and renowned Italian chef Gino D’Acampo.

The Greek chef questioned Gino’s pizza skills, with the Italian asking why this matters since they’re cooking “kebabs.”

“No, no, not a kebab, it’s souvlaki in Greece,” the souvladitziko chef said, adding: “aye pizza boy, its souvlaki.”

Scottish chef Gordon Ramsay could be seen laughing immediately.

After the hilarious scene, a competition between two souvladitziko chefs on one side and Gino and Gordon on the other.

Gordon could be seen telling Gino: “Just stop calling it a ****ing kebab.”

The Italian was quick to say “he’s calling me a pizza boy.”

Ramsay was clearly concerned of not wanting to upset the locals by confusing a Greek souvlaki with a Turkish kebab.

The 45-year-old Italian chef was born in Torre del Greco, which in Italian means “Greek man’s tower.” Torre del Greco is a municipality of Naples (Neapolis/Νεάπολις), a city founded by Ancient Greeks in the 8th Century BC.
