The TikTok food community welcomed first-time cooks who were eager or scared to get in the kitchen during the pandemic just as easily as it amplified voices for professional chefs, like Gordon Ramsay who, well roasted more than a chicken this year.

Whether it was cooking up mini pancakes to eat like cereal or transforming finely shaved carrots into fake bacon, these were the Top 10 food video trends on TikTok this year.

Ramsay reacts

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who has a fiery television persona directed at incompetent cooks, used the Duet feature on the app to critique home cooks as they attempted their own recipes. The results were usually, well less than up to his standards, but the commentary was always hilarious.

Eating cream cheese and bell peppers is a thing

Ramsay collided with this next trend as people prepared what they called a "low-carb sandwich" by slathering an entire bell pepper, cut lengthwise in half, with cream cheese and filling it up with deli meat and veggies.
