At 62 and having worked all my life, I just became interested in enjoying cooking beyond following recipes. This was a fun and most educational class. Gordon is not only entertaining and clear in his presentations but he also makes me want to explore and cook with zest. Thank you for sharing your passion for making delicious dishes!

I am 74 years old and excited about cooking. Learning never stops and being able to learn new techniques, tools and the desire of the instructors to show their passion.

I'm a home cook, but i loved this! Gordon Ramsay's relaxed style was great, not what i expected at all. He spends time with 7 or so hard recipes, none of them for things i am naturally drawn to as a cook, but he nevertheless managed to inspire me to try to make at least 5 of them, and that's saying something. Beef Wellington, here i come.

What to say? Gordon Ramsay is amazing. A phenomenal chef with an amazing knack for teaching his trade. I believe he sets the standard for teaching.


Kris S. honest and emotional! Thanks for that Gordon! Inspired and moved me!

I have a better understanding of knife handling and the way you cook herbs first before you put meat or veggies on

I'm just beginning my adventure in cooking and found the lessons to be a great benefit. Gordon's passion for his craft comes through in the lessons and inspires as well as educates. Look out Gordon I may be hanging a shingle across the street from your restaurant in the near future.

Gordon is absolutely brilliant. At first, I was not sure I wanted to watch based on his volatile nature on his TV shows. After listening to his introduction I decided to watch and wow Gordon is my favorite Master Class. He is passionate and has put in all the work. He deserves much more recognition for his talent and drive. I especially like how he explains the value of using everything an ingredient can provide as if your life and business depends on every cent. He has not only shared his exceptional techniques and menu but has instilled a need to be more mindful of everything we do. Gordon provides life lessons using cooking as a platform. We can apply his passion, focus, persistence and drive to perfection in any career or pursuit. I have found a new interest, respect, and eagerness to learn more... I have insisted my son (24) and daughter (20) to watch his cooking classes to see what a successful person with passion and drive acts like! Wow, congratulations to Gordon and the Masterclass for sharing a brilliant mind in his element. I can't wait to watch other Masterclass experts.

Thank you Gordon Ramsay. You are a great mentor for the people out there who have drive and ambition to know there is a light toward their goal and more, with hard work, creativity, sacrifice, and determination. You are a true inspiration and your passion is a bright light.


His desire to be great and learn is very impressive. You miss 100% shots you don’t take!

Elba Iris P.

Wow! This is such an inspiration. His passion and desire to learn is astounding! It's wonderful to know what the path to success has been for someone you admire and want to learn from!

Catherine P.

Great to see from this point of view because my past vision of him was less positive. I love his passion in this whole series. Do what you love. Love what you do!

I'm warming. I am confident I'd have liked you a whole lot better had I not watched the exaggerated behaviours your producers seem to enjoy on TV. This lesson in your introduction MasterClass is not just an insight into your journey, but also to the human. It's becoming hard to not feel more than a little affection for your passion, and your vulnerability. Thank you for both.
