He’s a meat guy

Gordon Ramsay is a hell of a chef — but even he can’t work with your weird vegan ingredients. Or at least, he didn’t want to when “Riverdale” star Madelaine Petsch challenged him to a meatless cook-off.

Ramsay used to boss around the actress behind The CW’s Cheryl Blossom back when she was a production assistant on “MasterChef Junior.”

Hey, we’ve all got to start somewhere.

We don’t know if you’ve heard, but she’s not shining shoes (or getting coffee, or photo-copying scripts, or whatever a P.A. does) anymore. And Petsch, who has her own YouTube channel, is a bit of a foodie herself.

Still, to challenge one of the best chefs in the world to an on-camera battle is a bit bold — even in her tofu world. It was never going to be a fair fight, but it became even less so pretty quickly: Ramsay didn’t want to even touch the kelp noodles, instead cheating his way through the whole thing.

Petsch was so absorbed in her own cast iron pans that she didn’t even notice.
