Top 10 Worst Hell's Kitchen Signature Dishes

The Top Ten

1 Antonia's Marti Gras Gumbo - Season 8

Oh God! Her dish made Chef Ramsay physically ill! Worst Hell's Kitchen signature dish ever!

I love how she didn't even make it in to the first dinner service!

Should have been eliminated on the signature dish challenge

How could someone not taste their dish in a high stakes competition like Hell's Kitchen? It takes like two seconds to taste. Antonia would've died if Gordon make her finish her Gumbo.

2 La Tasha's Grilled Watermelon - Season 13

She got a bad signature dish but she managed to bounce back to claim the head chef at Gordon Ramsay pub and Grill at Cesar's At New Jersey

Funny thing how she won Hell's Kitchen - Just like Danny from Season 5

1/10/2014 - I'd laugh if she actually won Season 13!
It would Danny & Grilled Bananas again!

And I can actually see her possibly winning, seeing that she's been consistent for the most part and seems to have good leadership.

3 Gaurav's Tuna Steak - Season 12
4 Chrissa's Ginger Encrusted Chicken - Season 14
5 Jen's Dungeness Crab & Risotto - Season 4

Raw rice and Jen gets mad at Ramsay


6 Fran's Signature Dish - Season 7
7 Matt's Exotic Tartar - Season 4

I have to admit... I got sick watching watching Chef Ramsay vomit. Honestly, I would have been like leave... Leave now that food was so disgusting Timon and Pumba would rather eat grubs than this slop.

No one in the history of Hell's Kitchen has cooked a dish so inedible that Chef Ramsay got to point where he was legit sick. It came out faster than it went in. Everything was raw on the plate and the white chocolate on it turned me off. Combination of ingredients sucked. It's mind blowing that Chef Ramsay gave him a black jacket over Louross.

"My signature dish is going to help me stand out." Oh it sure did Matt. Disgusting to even think about the combination of ingredients.

A) There's nothing cooked. He spent 60 minutes chopping up ingredients and pressing them into a ring? Yes, I'm aware it's supposed to be tartare, but what did he do for the other 51 minutes?
B) Chocolate, raw seafood and capers. Anyone that thinks that that combination sounds remotely appetizing is either mentally deficient or on massive amounts of LSD.
C) Thinking he looks good in that silly ass hat. You're not Samuel L. Jackson dude.

8 Kimmie's Fisherman's Trio - Season 10
9 Louie's Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits - Season 6

Why would you serve a breakfast item to Chef Ramsay, he also has 100 eat that at is restaurant, that doesn't mean your food is good. Many people eat at McDonalds and it probably sucks

10 Monique's Mo's Pasta - Season 14

Not only did she use jarred sauce on her signature dish, but she also argued with Chef Ramsay when he scolded her. Unbelievable.

Monique was such a joke.

Monique was by far the worst contestant ever on the show.

Not the worst contestant, but a bad contestant

The Contenders

11 Mike's Herb-Fried Tortellini - Season 12

This guy honestly thought he had a shot at being the winner? With premade and packages tortellini? Ha! Did he even know who he was cooking for?

He should have made his own pasta and tomato sauce. Chef Ramsay hates premade food.

He also talked on Ramsay's back

He used canned tomatoes too

12 Tavon's Shrimp Scallops & Crab - Season 10

As you see Tavin is a Excective chef bug Ramsay thinks he should do dishwashing instead

13 Kevin's Chicken Caesar Pita - Season 15

This sounds disgusting and using premade dough and caesar salad dressing is a huge no no! It is pretty much in the same level as Mike's packaged tortellini with canned tomatoes. - ndog

He took the easy way out using store-bought ingredients and still his dish tasted horrible

Should be at the top 10 of this list.

14 Nilka's Chicken Wings with Tabasco - Season 7
15 Polly's Focaccia Bread - Season 2

"Right now, I'd rather eat poodle s***"

"Right now, I'd rather eat poodle s***." - Gordon Ramsay

16 Raj's Seafood & Vegetable Pancake - Season 8

Chef Ramsay actually liked the taste of the dish, which is surprising considering Raj's performance on the show.

Just look at the size of that pancake, Worst contestant in hells kitchen

17 Amanda's Margarita French Toast with Tequila Wine Butter - Season 6

This girl was literally trying to get Chef Ramsay Drunk

18 Kimberly's Pappardelle with Clams - Season 16

Oh boy, another chef that used premade ingredients in their signature dish. For the third season in a row. At this point, there's no way this is a coincidence. This HAS to be scripted.

19 Seth's Honey Ratatouille - Season 5

Ramsay claims it's the worst dish he's tasted.
Seth inappropriately laughs
Ramsay tells him he could be responsible for the fastest exit in Hell's Kitchen

While the dish itself sucked, I don't feel like as many people would have brought this up had Seth not laughed afterwards.

20 Michael's Roe on Scallops - Season 1

Funny thing how this guy won & never got yelled at
