i have learned new skills that i will cary with me. i love learning things every day

I skipped the classes that I couldn't veganize but really enjoyed the ones I watched and have had great success with the recipes. Would love it if Gordon did an all fruit/veg/grain series.

I enjoyed the tips and variety in recipes. The examples of how to elevate the dishes are great as well.

Wow. Incredible dishes I look forward to trying. And as usual, Gordon is a joy to watch. His love of his art is so beautifully on display.

Seared sesames crusted ahi is my favorite and the marinated cucumber is such a nice complement

That was really fun to watch! And as others have mentioned, I appreciate that he showed us how to cut the fish pieces and eat with the lettuce cup once finished.

I've seen this fried fish application on several "Travel Channel or Food Network Channel" "extreme cooking" shows. Gordon has taken this technique from extreme to mainstream. Thank you. I believe that I could replicate this dish in my home kitchen now.

Chef Master Baster Notice how the flour dredge slides right off with the first ladle of oil. Lovely presentation, though, with the butchered carcass of the fish as centerpiece. Hmm!

My husband and I watch these videos while eating supper...it's so much fun and we always find something inspiring. Thank you, Gordon Ramsey and Masterclass!

I am really glad he showed us how to eat it. I wish he did that with every meal.

That's a show-stopper. Branzino has such a rich flavor that this approach guarantees a standout meal, as well as presentation...and who but Chef Ramsay would have thought to use the much benighted Iceberg lettuce?

Chuck O.

Does the dipping sauce come from the marinade? Also is the pickling sauce rice wine vinegar, water and sugar?

A fellow student

My first time doing anything like this, I am so excited and having a lot of fun! Thank you.

Well here is my first attempt at Fried Bronzino and except for the fish leaning over in the pan, I am thrilled to it's outcome. Also I did not use ice berg lettuce I tried butter lettuce and was blown away. You will also notice the small amount of sautéed shiitake mushrooms along side the fish. Thank you Gordon!
