This is an amazing experience, I love Gordon’s passionate style, I can relate so much to it... I wish we had a little longer lessons, or more of them, it left me wanting more, f***ing thanks!

Great information and each lesson got better and better!

Always felt mentored by Gordon Ramsay, even within Hells Kitchen and Masterchef, Finally get to experience his tutelage Face to Face.

Wow. I loved this. Great inspiration for 2018!

Could not help but notice that Ramsey changed knives while skinning the butternut squash.

What I don’t understand is that Gordon doesn’t realize is that honing a knife is different from shapenening. When you hone a blade what your doing is your realigning the edge so it’s more sharp. It’s just a temporary fix. When you sharpen your removing material from the blade to recreate a new edge. When I say sharpen that means your sharpening in a sharpening stone such as wetstones. When I sharpen I always sharpen on waterstones to about 6000 grit. You should really know the difference between sharpening and honing.

This is superb! Chef Ramsey's explanations and demonstrations are masterpieces of lucidity and economy.

This lesson is almost worth the subscription price: knife skills, including honing, slicing and dicing safely are one of the most important foundational skills in a kitchen. I was invited to guest lecture with an experienced CIA graduate in a culinary program: I taught my group of students these skills and they were entirely unfamiliar with them. As Gordon Ramsay says: 'Watch Carefully.' I don't know a lot but I do know these things. Unsaid here is that honing is not enough; depending on level of use, these fine German knives benefit from professional sharpening and setting up on an annual (at least) basis.

I am no longer intimidated on how to use knives to slice and dice properly.

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

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.
