Gordon Ramsay has been slammed for making what he called a 'staple local dish' that is actually just what natives describe as rice being stuck to the bottom of a pot.  

The British chef made what he thought was a dish called pegao - or crispy rice - as part of his YouTube series Scrambled.

Filming on a Puerto Rican cliff top, he told the camera: 'I'll show you a local ,  beautiful dish made with left over rice it's called pegao. 

'The beauty of this dish is that it's a staple - nothing fancy but the flavor profile is unique.'  

Puerto Rican chefs and others slammed his effort, saying pegao is not a dish itself but the word that's used for rice that sticks to the bottom of a pan and goes crispy.
