Her mother also happens to be a cookbook author. It’s no surprise, then, that Tilly Gordon is making a name for herself in the kitchen, capitalising on the youngest generation of foodies. 

From London England, Tilly began making appearances on television as early as 2005, in British children’s programs and on a number of her father’s shows, including ‘MasterChef Junior.’ Tilly (more formally, Matilda and more affectionately,  Tills) is best known for her role on the BBC cooking show ‘Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch,’ alongside her family. The series, aimed at children, aired from 2015-2019 and followed the Ramsay family on their summer holidays to the United States, with Tilly whipping up a themed meal for her parents and siblings each episode.

It even has a few recipes for pet food! Her whimsical twist on food aims to get tweens and teens excited about creating easy-to-follow recipes, with themes like ‘Sleepover Feasts.’ Not surprisingly, it’s sprinkled with tips and tricks from dad. [/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6204″ img_size=”600×400″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow”][vc_custom_heading text=”For the highly competitive and confident teenager, cooking is about having fun and making simple, good food.” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1586815723853{margin-top: 30px !important;margin-right: 50px !important;margin-bottom: 30px !important;margin-left: 50px !important;padding-top: 25px !important;padding-right: 25px !important;padding-bottom: 25px !important;padding-left: 25px !important;background-color: #212931 !important;border-radius: 4px !important;}”][vc_column_text]As the youngest daughter of five children, Tilly says that she began cooking at a young age to get attention from her parents and it quickly turned into a full time hobby. For the highly competitive and confident teenager, cooking is about having fun and making simple, good food. On camera, she commands the kitchen with the wit and enthusiasm that only a teenager has. She’s also playful and cheeky, known for having spirited cook-offs with her dad and bragging publicly that her food is tastier and less ‘posh’ than her fathers. Bold words! 

These days, Tilly splits her time between her family homes in London and Los Angeles. When she’s not cruising around with her friends (she just got her driver’s license), you can find her making TikTok videos with her family and working for the family business, Gordon Ramsay Restaurants. Most recently, she developed the kids's menus for the restaurant group, aptly called Tilly’s Menus. As her culinary journey continues, she certainly knows who to turn to for advice. In fact, he may be answering ‘yes, chef’ to her soon enough! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
