Right, I’m here with “The
Late Late Show” host and triple threat performer, James Corden. Now, we know he can
dance, sing, and act. But what I want to know
is, can this man cook? Yes. Yes, I can. And what are you cooking? We’re cooking a chicken
Thai noodle broth. So I’ve got the exact same
ingredients that you’ve got. Yes. This is your dish. Right. And it’s my job to beat you. Well, I mean you
are [inaudible] chef, it’s not your really your job. It’s my job to beat you. – Are you ready?
– I’m ready. I’m pumped. May the best noodle win. Let’s do it. Who taught you
to cook this dish? Jamie Oliver,
best chef in the UK. That’s what everybody says. There’s no one actually
quite like him. GORDON RAMSAY:
He’s a great cook. No, this wasn’t
[inaudible], though. This was my mum.
– Right. We used to cook this at home. Have a little smell. Yeah, but see,
that’s burnt to me. You can’t serve that. You’re nuts. That’s caramelization. That’s burnt. That is a burnt piece of veggie. You cannot serve that. That is carameli– You can’t serve that. You cannot do that! You can’t serve that. This is the best mood
I’ve ever seen you in in a kitchen,
unless you’re doing the “Master Chef” for kids. I thought you were just
grumpy all the time. Who’s been your favorite
carpool karaoke guest? I think it was
probably Bruno Mars. Right. Oh. Oh, [beep]. Have you really– That is too sharp. Look at that. You’re not blaming
me the knives. Look. One finger down, nine to go. Wow. Just close your eyes. Blow on it a little bit. Close your eyes. Wait, just– mm, come on. Come on! That’s the worst– who’s gonna eat that? Is that a joke? Come on. No wonder you have
to get out of England. [beep]. – You haven’t just done it.
– Damn. No, you haven’t. No, you haven’t just done it! [beep]. – Have you done it?
– Joking! Come on! You old dog. Are you kidding me? For the first time in my life
I felt genuine empathy for you. Look at that. That is beautifully cooked. I’m sorry. Slightly pink in the middle. No, it’s not. It’s gorgeous! Well, that bit looks
a little bit pink there. You’re full of [beep]. That is not pink. That is just– that is perfect. GORDON RAMSAY: So this gets
the stock darker and better. Hang on. You have to take the
ladle– is that hot? No.
No, no, no. – Promise me?
– Promise you, that’s fine. OK.
So I take the ladle. That’s it. In, and just let that
through the stock. It’s a lot easier than
I thought, actually. Yeah, let that– let that– It’s a lot easier
that I thought. No, no, no, no, no! No! No! It’s gonna make all
the difference, that. GORDON RAMSAY: We finished
with some garnish and it’s time to take our bowls
to the cooking class across the hall to
see which thai chicken noodle broth they prefer. We’ll see what
they’re going to say. – Let’s find out.
– All right. GORDON RAMSAY: Excuse me. Excuse me, sorry
for interrupting. Good evening! Would you mind being the judge
of these two dishes, please? JAMES CORDEN: Yeah?
– All right. Good luck.
– OK. GORDON RAMSAY: James’s
great bowl has all the looks of a beautiful dish, but
I’m confident my flavors will give me the win. JAMES CORDEN: She didn’t
try a piece of chicken. No, it’s ridiculous! She’s got [inaudible]. GORDON RAMSAY: She literally
had a mushroom of mine. – No, no, no, no.
– [beep]. No, no. She had a mushroom– No. Dig deep! I mean, he’s got the
whole flavor there. Have you come to a consensus? Four of us chose one bowl. One of us chose the other. Go on. We had to go with
the black bowl. Yes! 4 to 1.
Thank you. – Congratulations.
– Good job. Thank you. Well played. Which was the one? Who chose mine? Well done. Well played.
