Gordon Ramsay has been cooking in professional kitchens for over 25 years. He’s been taught by some of the best chefs in the world and in turn taught some of the best. In this new series he’s going to strip away all the complexity, all the hard graft and teach us all how to cook amazing food with ease.
The series is all about giving home cooks the desire, confidence and inspiration to hit the stoves and get cooking; whether you love cooking already or you’re starting from scratch, Gordon will get you cooking with modern recipes that are simple and accessible with a wow factor and an edge. It’s a lifetime’s worth of expertise from the world’s finest chef distilled into ten glorious, mouth-watering half hours.
Over the past decade Gordon has travelled the world from India and the Far East to LA and Europe and during the series he’ll draw all these culinary influences together to show us simple, vibrant and utterly delicious recipes that reflect the way we all eat today. There’ll be recipes like deliciously sticky, beef short rib with star anise, chilli and lime; amazing stuffed lamb, pork and sea bream; simple and inventive chicken tacos with cucumber pickle and chipotle salsa; noodle dishes to die for and super easy salads, packed with flavour and perfect when you’re cooking for a crowd.
Each episode will concentrate on a different area of cooking essential for the modern cook: from the secret of cooking with chilli and spice, through baking, roasting and slow cooking to easy suppers, breakfast, brunches and special occasions. Woven into the cooking will be all sorts of useful tricks and tips – from ways to save time and money, to how to present simple food so it looks like a million dollars – making this the only cookery course you’ll ever need. Gordon will explain the dos and don’ts of cleaning and prepping your ingredients, demonstrating everything from how to pan fry like a professional and fillet fish to how to get the balance of spices right for the perfect curry. And he’ll pass on his specialist knowledge, revealing, for example, how Dover Sole tastes better a couple of days after it’s been caught (when the flavour has fully developed) whereas Plaice is best eaten as fresh as possible.
Stuffed full of delicious recipes, invaluable tips and lashings of Gordon’s trademark cheeky wit, Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course is the ultimate cooking lesson from the ultimate chef.
