I've learned so much from watching these Gordon Ramsay videos. My cooking has improved by adjusting simple things like the way I heat oil in a pan or use vegetables for particular flavors. It's so incredible! I also can't stop saying the word "beautiful!" I hope to see more cooking classes like this one. Thank you, Gordon and MasterClass!

I live in Rwanda. This was my first time to see the kind of food and how things get mixed to create a different new tasty and creative food. I feel like I am going to try different food and I think I will one day tell others that I made it. Thank you very Gordon May God the almighty bless you so much.

I like finished word of Ramsey, Cook is a Marathon, I learned so much techniques that I can use in my place. Russell, Oh boy, you are amazing

I've learned so much and my cooking confidents has skyrocketed. I'm so happy to bless my family and friends with great food

I've learnt a lot about Potatoes already as I've started to look at the different varieties. Gordon can you give any further guidance on potato type and uses? Whites for example and other very common varieties? Gordon I’d not seen spinach cooked that way before and it taste great will be cooking it that way from now on. Photograph of Potatoes and Spinach.

made this dish and it turned out amazing! took a little longer to cook but the rack was also far larger than the one in this video. I have never cooked a dish this advance before and his instructions were so easy to follow!

Does anybody have any ideas as to why he choses or even switches between the gas top and induction? Sometimes it seems like he just heats the pan on the gas the goes over to the induction. Just curious what the deciding factor is on which to use.

Why does the workbook have so much salt added to the basil crust? 2 tablespoons kosher salt!! I don't see him adding any salt and online recipes in Hell's Kitchen doesn't mention it...

A fellow student

In the process of making this recipe. Basil crust calls for 2T of kosher salt. However, Gordon Ramsey does not mention or use salt in the video. I am going to leave this out of the basil crust and was wondering if anyone noticed this discrepancy? Thank you

Unbelievable.. I was literally (I use it correctly, unlike Ramsay) halfway through the cook before I realised no finishing temperature and duration. I used a meat probe but the damage was done because the temp just wasn’t high enough, it still ended up unevenly cooked. Never really had a good outcome with his teachings. I’d take Chef Keller over him any day.

Lesson was well done but the lesson pdf was missing some of the directions on the lamb. Return to over at 395F for 6 minutes. Rest for 2 minutes before serving.

Hi, you appear to be missing some of the instructions in the pdf? Putting the lamb back in the oven with the crust on is missing

Cooking times are way off. A rack of Wicklow lamb takes 15-20mins in the oven at 200 C Fan pink inside. The written recipe doesn't give the second roast times or temperature. There's another class about roasting a chicken in 1 hour. I have a massive Gas grille rotisserie that can reach over 500 F and the best time I've managed a chicken just cooked through is 1hr 10mins. Any less and it's raw in the middle. There's not a chance of roasting a chicken in the oven at 190c in an hour. My advice. Get a probe thermometer if you're not sure. I spent 3 months in cookery school and it always makes me laugh when you read these recipes, we had one at school that said to get a lovely pink duck breast, sear in a hot pan 5mins each side and 20 mins 190c in the oven, complete rubbish.

INVALUABLE TOOL! - a cooking probe thermometer. I use mine every single time I put meat in the oven and it is always perfectly cooked without needing to open oven and check meat.
