Gordon Ramsay joined TikTok star Nick DiGiovanni to create the world’s largest beef wellington.

TV chef Gordon Ramsay along with TikTok star Nick DiGiovanni have become the Guinness World Record holders for the largest beef wellington, weighing the equivalent of an eight-year-old boy.

The mammoth dish, created using the Kitchen Nightmares star’s signature beef wellington recipe, weighs around 25.76kg (56.79lb) while the regular-sized meal weighs approximately 1.42kg (3.13lb).

TikTok chef DiGiovanni, who is known for breaking multiple food-related world records, celebrated hitting the 10 million subscriber milestone on YouTube by creating the giant savoury pastry dish.

A video of the world record-breaking moment, and how the pair made the dish, was posted to Twitter by DiGiovanni which shows how they prepared 18kg (40lbs) of beef to create the massive wellington.

The footage shows the chefs sprinkling the beef with meat glue to hold the meat in shape before using a blow torch gun to sear it.

The beef was then brushed with mustard using a large paintbrush before being wrapped in layers of prosciutto, then duxelles – a mix of mushrooms, onions and herbs to create a paste – and finally puff pastry ready to be put in the oven to cook.

Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen in Liverpool ONE offers up his signature Beef Wellington, as well as the Beef Wellington Experience.

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply indulging in a decadent meal, the Beef Wellington at Bread Street Kitchen is an experience that should not be missed. With its exceptional ingredients, skillful preparation, and attention to detail, this dish exemplifies the culinary excellence that Bread Street Kitchen is known for.

Located on Paradise Street, Bread Street Kitchen provides a stylish and contemporary setting in which to enjoy this classic dish. The restaurant’s warm and inviting ambiance, as well as stunning outside terrace, coupled with its dedication to exceptional service, creates the perfect backdrop for savouring the Beef Wellington experience.

Ramsay offered advice to perfect the dish and told DiGiovanni:

“First of all we’ve got to get that sear – no colour, no flavour. Then that duxelles, then the prosciutto, then the crepes, and then of course that delicious flaky pastry.”

Once the dish was cooked and served with the Hell’s Kitchen star’s accompanying sauce, Ramsay described the huge beef wellington as “delicious”.

“Look at that thing… That is beautiful,” he said in the video.

Fellow TikTok chefs Max the Meat Guy, Guga Foods and The Golden Balance lent a helping hand to build the mammoth dish, which consisted of slicing the prosciutto, sou vide cooking the beef until medium rare and encasing it all inside large pastry dough.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Andrew Glass was present to record the official results and confirmed the wellington had beaten the minimum weight requirement of 20kg (44.09 lb).

Overjoyed, Ramsay lifted Mr Glass on his shoulders and spun him around before screaming “I love you”.

This challenge marks DiGiovanni’s eighth world record since 2021, which has since helped him amass more than 11 million followers on TikTok.

His previous world record attempts include creating the largest cake pop, the largest sushi roll, and the largest donation of turkey in 24 hours, and he beat Ramsay’s previous record of the fastest time to fillet a 10lb fish.
