It's amazing! Knowledge cooking and skills keep growing because of each lesson. Gordon's class is wonderful

Inspirational!!! He takes dishes that incorporate multiple techniques that you can expand in many other aspects of your cooking. Simply brilliant teaching!!!

I love this class. Way beyond learning new recipes, I learned techniques that will serve me for years to come... and I can't wait to try more of the recipes!

As a home cook, there are techniques that I have never seen. Chef Ramsey makes things easy and give me confidence. Thank you.



I loved this lesson! I have tried in the past to make sesame crusted tuna steaks but never got the technique right, this is amazing. Can't wait to try this recipe.

Any idea what GR would recommend as a sub for cilantro? I'm one of those who thinks it tastes like soap!

My husband doesn't like sushi, or fish that is medium rare...but I wanted to make this dish. He absolutely loved it! He said that the tuna did not taste fishy, and it was so tender. He didn't even notice that it was rare in the center. He also doesn't get along with cucumbers, but is able to handle pickles, so I pulled another fast one over him. The dish was a success! Loved all of the flavors and this is definitely a dish that would impress company.

I am a novice cook and I followed the video and the workbook as closely as I could. I could NOT get the sesame seeds to stick to the tuna. Does anyone have any tips or insights as to what I did wrong? Please help :)


I've made a variation of this dish, but so happy to get the trick of coating it with egg white and basting while cooking. Will make all the difference.
