Absolutely Amazing !!! A real masterclass that shows how cooking can be elevated to a completely different level!

Really inspiring Gordon. Now it´s time for you to come open a Restaurant in Berlin. Pretty please? With sugar on top?

I've learned so much about cooking etiquite and how to make some real fancy recipes to impress my friends and family. This class made me want to go out and cook for friends.

It helped me learn some kitchen techniques I haven't seen before and allowed me to see the art in food.



I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to learn more about stocks/soups/sauces from you Gordon...time for a third Masterclass perhaps...???

There is wealth of knowledge in these course. I regret that we don't get certificates for these courses. I mean we do pay for them we should get some sort of certificate.

Very useful! However, how should one go about de-boning the chicken if the bone is required for the breast piece?

This lesson was wonderful. He makes it look so easy and explains everything as he goes along so I could follow.
