This Valentine's Day, the New Girl loft is all loved up. Winston has Aly, Schmidt's got Cece, Nick has Reagan, and Jess has…Gordon Ramsay?

In this clip from Tuesday's episode of New Girl, Jess tries to banish her Valentine's blues with a specially prepared meal from the MasterChef himself, though the delicious feast (which Jess won in an auction) quickly escalates into a full-on therapy session.

"Jess is really impressed with Gordon Ramsay's ability to psychoanalyze her," Zooey Deschanel explains.

Ramsay, meanwhile, is more than happy to put his many years as a TV chef to work on Jess, who's still struggling with her feelings for Nick.

"Watch that bubbly character that Zooey plays, it's quite nice because having done over 100 episodes of Kitchen Nightmares, I actually feel like I'm Dr. Ramsay," he quips.

Check out the clip above, and watch New Girl Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
