The kitchen queen says she only wants to be in shows that are “kinder” to participants.
Nigella, 58, said Australia’s MasterChef, where she is a guest judge, is much friendlier than the US version, which features the fiery Scot.
Gordon, 51, has built his reputation on his X-rated verbal attacks on competitors in his shows.
Nigella told US telly: “MasterChef Australia is different from the MasterChef here and the one in England.
“Every chef in the country would love her [Nigella] in the kitchen. She’s sex on legs”
“It is much kinder and it’s much more supportive. I wouldn’t want to be in one of those shouty things that make people feel bad.”
Foul-mouthed Gordon will be a guest judge on MasterChef Australia next week, right after Nigella’s stint.
It is not the first time the famous chefs have had a verbal run-in.
Ramsay once called his rival a “domestic goddess” but praised her status as a sex symbol rather than her cooking skills.
He said: “Every chef in the country would love her in the kitchen, but we’d never get any work done. She’s sex on legs.”
