Gordon Ramsay gets his own Alexa skill

Gordon Ramsay for Alexa

If you feel like getting berated for your cooking skills each night, look no further than Amazon’s Alexa, which now has a Gordon Ramsay skill.

The skill was developed in partnership with Ground Control, a firm that specializes in building interactive experiences for voice enabled devices. The company has collaborated with former vice president Joe Biden and LA Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers on similar skills.

According to Ground Control, the Gordon Ramsay skill “allows you to invite your favorite chef over for dinner.” Those who wish to enable the skill should be prepared to “get ready for a reality check” from the quick-tempered chef, who will happily serve up his opinion on both prepared and delivered food.

“I can't wait for everyone to have fun with this new skill for Amazon Alexa. I’ll review any dish you throw at me,” said Ramsay in a statement. "We all need to lighten up in the kitchen sometimes, don't we?!”

Ramsay appeared in Amazon’s Alexa-themed Super Bowl spot over the weekend, which also starred celebrities including Leslie Jones, Cardi B and Rebel Wilson. The commercial earned the number one spot on USA Today’s Ad Meter.
