I have always learnt a lot from Gordon Ramsay and trust him intrinsically. This felt genuine and masterful as well as esthetically very pleasing.

Great masterclass. Thank you. I love this website.

I like Gordon’s style of teaching/explaining a lot and the class helped me understand how a great chef prepares and presents exceptional food.

It been amazing! I've enjoyed gleaning every drop of knowledge I could here. Cooking the lessons, and re-cooking them has been work, but OH so much FUN! You are talking to one happy foodie here :-). I'll probably be trolling these lessons for months to come. Excellent class, excellent chef, all stars...

You have confirmed what I knew from years of experience. It's good to hear it from the professional though !

I love his passion and energy. Every single vegetable he touches I fall in love with it! Gorgeous!

I loved this lesson. It was wonderful to learn all of the subtle techniques that make a huge difference when it comes to welding a knife. After seeing it, I tested my own knifes to see how they fit in my hand and whether or not I found it easy to work with them while practicing the cutting motions. I cannot wait to share this information with other members of my family so we can all use knives with more confidence and safely.

I like that he is taking his time explaining, and repeating procedures. Easy to understand and remember.

Decided I wanted to try Scallops again but this time with a twist. Garlic Butter Tenderloin & Pan Seared Sea Scallops with pureed Garlic Cauliflower.

Pan Seared Blood Orange Sea Scallops, Sautéed Butternut Squash, Red Onion & Applewood Smoked Bacon dressed with Butternut Puree. I really enjoyed this lesson and scallops. I've never had them before. I have certainly never made them either. Not so scary and really delicious .

Awesome lesson. I won't look at a knife set the same. I have always been nervous trying to cut or dice. Now I can't wait to practice slowly.

A ten pound bag of potatoes is one of the best ways to practice. slice, dice, peel, tournee, they are odd in shape, yet become uniform... and so many ways to use your practice product!

This was an interesting lesson. I had another chef in different course tell me to hold the bigger knives with a finger on top for more control. I have usually used my knives the way Gordon recommends. The new and interesting portion of the technique Gordon discussed was the off-hand. I will definitely need to start using the 3 finger off-hand technique.
