I really love it and gave me some good tips and overall to become better in cooking

Absolutely enjoyed it! Not only did I learn how and why things are done, I learned that there is no shame in starting where you are, and building on that.

What a fucking brilliant class! I am happier than a pig in shit or a dog with nine dicks. Gordon Ramsay is an artist and a winner. Bravo, Gordon!

What a great class, I've learned so much about cooking and think I will get into it more. It's a skill I had been neglecting, but now am excited to take more of the cooking classes! 11/10, will recommend!

I'm so glad this isn't one of his Youtube videos. Otherwise is would be like this. Name of herb. Ramsay: "Plant, grow, chop, done." This is so helpful because my Mom has a garden. Thanks so much!

Basically Gordon playing with vegetables for 15 minutes. What is the point of this???


I have Pomme Puree' in the workbook, and there are others who have watched Pomme Puree' in this section. Why was it taken out?


This was really useful, thank you. But there's some other vegetables and herbs I want to know more about. Onions, lettuce, spinach, other kinds of beans, cucumbers, etc. And also oregano, basil, bay leaves, chives, etc. I just feel like this video is incomplete. Maybe a part 2 on this would be good?

He is amazing!!! I think that I am seeing certain ingredients a lot different than ever before. I finally bought different carrots and grilled them. I just washed the carrot and grilled in a pan. WOW!!

Loved the enthusiasm! Would love to actually see him chop and mince the herbs to get an idea of how to cut them without bruising them. Also, would love short spinets of video of him cooking with each of the vegetables to watch him handle them- ie how to know when they are done cooking to not overcook, which are best to cook over stove, or bake in oven ( I am sure there will be some references in the other videos he makes) but having it all in one video to review over and over again would be helpful.

So what I'm learning from this is that you need to love your food even before you cook or eat it!

Some of the links from the workbook are not working. i.e pg8 "Use this guide" to plan what vegetables gives a 404 because the outside resource has removed or moved the page.

A fellow student

He describes food like out of a Robert Frost poem. You can actually smell the herbs!


I love how he lit up rhapsodizing about vegetables, fresh herbs and preparing food. I will now feel ok about not peeling small root vegetables and leaving their roots attached, further reinforced in the chicken supreme lesson.
