Former Bake Off competitor Ruby Tandoh has slammed Nigella Lawson and Tom Kerridge, calling them "dull snobs."

She posted the remarks on Twitter, saying she's bored of the food world being full of "horsey-maned rich girls" and "pompous 'real food' guys."

She also hit out at female food writers for "Marie Antoinetting," suggesting that they only cook for a hobby as they are actually too rich to cook a dinner for their family themselves, according to The Telegraph.

Tandoh said: "It started with cookbooks written by rich women who were hobbyist cooks but never once made the family dinner (that's what the maid was for) and then it continued through generations of food writers, nearly exclusively white, and always rich.

"Just marie antoinetting their way thru this fetishistic 'domesticity' except, alas, no guillotine."

She called for people to instead listen to a podcast called Racist Sandwich, which is about food, race, class, and gender. The baker also suggested people look at alternative food media.

Tandoh ended her comments with: "Basically just eat the rich."

This is not the first time the Bake Off star has criticised other food personalities. Earlier this year she called Ella Mills, who is known as Deliciously Ella, "dangerous as f***" for making money from the 'wellness craze'."

She also called Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood a "peacocking manchild" last year.
