OMG.. just the introduction has me excited. Gordon's passion is amazing.

This class gave me great insight in how ingredients work and how to make great food out of normal ingredients. Now that I've finished this class, I'll rewatch it from start to finish and actually try to cook and practice perfecting the dished shown by Gordon Ramsay.

It has helped me to see the simplistic complexity of creating my perfect dish...

Well, I love how Gordon cooks, and I learnt a lot of techniques from Masterclass. Wish that Masterclass somehow allows me to taste Gordon's cooking!

I made 3 of these this morning...learned a couple things: 1. Swirling the water too much separates the whites from the yolk so much so that they never fully re-incorporated with one another. I got less agressive on the 2nd two attempts 2. Alba clamshell mushrooms weren't the best choice...for me 3. Two minutes was not nearly enough time on any of the attemps. I had a good boil, not rolling but not only simmering. All 3 eggs took 2:30-3:00 to fully cook and they came out perfectly! I also live in Denver so I'm assuming my altitude and lower boiling point came into play here. 4. Drizzling a small amount of the drippings on top of the egg, as Ramsay did, is absolutely WINNER! I paired with sliced and seasoned heirloom tomatoes and slices of fresh avocado. Loved this dish and will make again soon.

This recipe is fantastic. At first I thought it’d be too “fancy” for me. I’ve never even poached an egg before. The egg definitely didn’t look as pretty, but this recipe turned out amazing!

This lesson taught me a lot since in my family everybody cooked the egg to a powdery consistency which made it taste like chalk.

The egg in spinning water works for one egg, but adding more surely just crashes them all together?

I found an assortment of gourmet mushrooms at the market and used a thick slice of Challah in place of the brioche. It was amazing!

I love poached eggs and now I can make them like a pro! I used diced ham rather than bacon but it still turned out pretty good.

This is my favorite method for poached eggs. I do not use the paper to drain the water though...every time I have tried that, I break the yolk. I use a slotted spoon and let the egg drain as I season...I am not Gordon; yet, I try to follow everything exactly and love all of his methods. I am on the road to perfecting this dish!

Need some help. Followed the recipe and method as best I could, but when I put the egg in the swirling water the white didn't want to mould to the egg, almost holding on to it like a thread. My water went cloudy and foamy and the egg white rose to the top. HELP!! Advice will be greatly appreciated, really want to nail this.

I haven't attempted to make this yet but I'm going to make it for breakfast tomorrow morning. I thought the instructor gave very clear insight and executed the technique flawlessly. Gordon Ramsay gives such great insights to Young aspiring home chefs and Cooks trying to elevate their cooking skills to a whole new level. The start to finish instructions are amazing and the little fine details he adds really brings a whole new level of cooking to any person watching these videos. So far in the first five lessons this purchase has been well worth the money especially learning from one of my idols. I can't wait to dive deeper into this masterclass and go over it with a fine-tooth comb. Exceptional content
