Gordon Ramsays Ultimate Cookery Course by Gordon RamsayPROS: All of the recipes I tried from the book were packed with flavor. Also, I don’t know if I was just lucky or if this is true of all the recipes, but nothing was incredibly hard to make. The book is clear and the recipes are easy to follow.
CONS: Gordon Ramsay has given himself a name in the entertainment world as being a dick – he’s so mean on some of his shows. That’s actually my only con and has nothing to do with the book itself.
Overall: Gordon Ramsay is a master of flavors. He has the ability to bring in flavors to his foods without making everything too complex. He is a good explainer and his book gives great instructions on how to accomplish these flavor combinations alone. I wish I had tie to try more of these recipes, including the Fish Pie, his version of Shakshuka (or what he calls North African Eggs,) Beef Meatballs with Orecchiette, Kale, and Pine Nuts, and the Malt Chocolate Doughnuts. Guess this is another book to add to my list of ones I need to buy!
