Gordon Ramsay has whipped up gourmet meals for plenty of stars over the years, but he once had the honour of cooking a dish for Princess Diana.

The Kitchen Nightmares star revealed that he once had the opportunity to prepare dinner for the late Princess of Wales back in the early 1990s, and it remains one of the best dishes he's ever made.

The Masterchef host, 54, recalled the time he served dinner to the beloved royal on Monday night's episode of Gordon, Gino and Fred Go Greek.

The hilarious travel show sees Gordon join fellow chef Gino D'Acampo and First Dates maître d' Fred Siriex on a quest to find the best dishes in Greece.

When asked what the "best meal" he has ever made was by Gino, Gordon answered: "Cooking for Lady Di once."

Telling the tale of when he cooked for Prince Harry and William's mother, Gordon explained that he prepared a starter of pressed leek terrine and a main course of sea bass.

Gordon served the fancy dishes to the princess at a London-based restaurant called Aubergine, where he was appointed head chef in 1993.
