Speechless. The only thing I can do to make him please to F*ing COOK.

Chef Ramsay is an incredible teacher who oozes passion as he discusses each recipe and generously offloads top tips in the kitchen.

What a wonderful class. Great teacher, recipes and directions.

Took both of Chef Ramsey's courses. He is a dynamic mentor and facilitator; with such a passion for cooking that it is contagious. Inspirational instruction.... I learned a great deal.

I did this one last night just as directed and thought it was pretty bad. Then I realized that butter really doesn’t belong in this kind of dish and omitted it. It was much better tasting, smoky and nutty. Butter was just so wrong.

Did gordon make his base chicken stock or did he buy regular chicken stock

I’m 13 years old and I’m trying to study culinary arts. I came across this meal and instantly wanted to make it. For my first attempt this is what I pulled off.

This one went over my head. Too many notes, although I must admit I've not made anything at this level.

Loved the lesson. Any suggestions on how best to do the sliced scallion garnish? Is it the white parts mostly? Does it stay in the ice water?

The Szechuan Chicken Breast and Udon Noodles is now our favorite soup. I make a slow roasted Beef Pho and everyone wants it all the time. Now this is a new favorite. The flavors of the broth are just as impressive as my Pho broth that takes hours to make. The reserved juice from the Roasted Szechuan Chicken packs even more flavor. The sautéed vegetables are so flavorful and not soggy since they are cooked separately and added at the end. And I can't say enough about the flavor of the Szechuan Roasted Chicken with a crispy skin and all the spices. The lemon salt adds a fresh citrus flavor and the noodles keep the chicken from sinking into the broth so the skin stays crispy.
