GORDON Ramsay has revealed he was asked to garnish one of his signature dishes with COCAINE.

Making the shock claims in his new two-part documentary Gordon Ramsay On Cocaine, the award-winning chef told how he has been surrounded by the drug throughout his career.

The 50-year-old said: “I saw cocaine quite early on in my career. I’ve been served it. I’ve been given it.

“I’ve had my hand shaken and left with little wraps of foil in it. I’ve been asked to dust cocaine on top of soufflés, to put it on as icing sugar.”

In the preview clip, the foul-mouthed foodie treks through dense rainforest to find a farmer transforming coca leaves into the Class A drug.

Ramsay was horrified when the farm worker dusts the leaves in cement powder before mixing it with sulphuric acid, gasoline and battery acid.

Stunned at the substances which were mixed with the plant, Ramsay said: “I’ve cooked some serious s*** in my life and been to some extraordinary places, but nothing quite on this level.”

Britain is Europe’s biggest user of cocaine with partygoers and addicts consuming 30 tons of the drug every year.

And because an estimated 80 per cent of the coke that ends up in the UK comes from Colombia, Ramsay wanted to ventured to the South American country to gain a better understanding of the drugs trade.

The two-part documentary shows that cocaine use is rife in the restaurant trade – where Ramsay has made his millions.

The chef has witnessed “coke” wreck the careers of colleagues including his close friend and protégé David Dempsey who fell to his death after having a bad reaction to the drug in 2003.

Ramsay said: “With soaring cocaine deaths in Britain and along the coke supply chain, I’m determined to understand the criminal business behind this deadly drug.”
