"I want to teach you how to cook good food at home. By stripping away all the hard graft and complexity, anyone can produce mouth-watering recipes. Put simply, I'm going to show you how to cook yourself into a better cook." GORDON RAMSAY Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course is about giving home cooks the desire, confidence and inspiration to hit the stoves and get cooking, with over 120 modern, simple and accessible recipes. The ultimate reference bible, it's a lifetime's worth of expertise from one of the world's finest chefs distilled into a beautiful book.
Excellent photographs, good clear black text on white background which is a little too small for following in the kitchen but fine for browsing recipes. Top class 'How to' cooking tips at the end of each recipe. Unfortunately, the first recipe I opened the book at, page 153, contained an error of fact where 'Maris Piper' is stated to be a waxy potato which - it is not. The other potato variety mentioned (Charlotte), certainly is waxy. I make these assertions from nearly 50 years of growing and showing potatoes. I have made the recipe using Maris Piper, which works, the Rosti forming a potato pancake, golden brown on both sides and very much like the Rosti I have enjoyed in Switzerland so many times. Having now read through the whole book, I find it most unfortunate that this page has the only mistake. Dr Sode must have been sitting on the hardback cover when the book opened.
Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course -
This is one of the best of the new series of cookbooks with lots of good and imaginative recipes for novice and experienced cooks, together with some very helpful tips.vThe book is divided into sections and less experienced cooks should find the chapters on Good Food for Less and Cooking for One and Two particularly useful.
Thanks Gordon! -
Mr Ramsay explains basic and insightful tips on cooking from his own experience, and it is humbly but eloquently written. Wonderful pictures too. Fantastic book for anyone who wants to look at their equipment and ingredients cupboard in a new light! (And it turns out I chop onions just the way he does, who knew..!)
