For the first time ever I was able to poach an egg perfectly... Make pasta dough from scratch and understand why I needed to put it though the machine so many times! Thank you so much! I have learned from the best ;)

I like that lessons are short and informative, instructor has a great personality and keeps you focus, great class!

This course definitely give me the basic idea on cooking. As someone who preferred to have meal on a restaurant, I will now start to cook for myself using the techniques learned from Master Chef Gordon Ramsay. Can't wait to cook the signature beef wellington dish myself. Thanks Gordon and Thanks to the Master Class for this great course.

I have realized what simple ingredients I have in the kitchen can elevate other staples like chicken, beef and eggs.



I made this Pasta Dough and made prawn ravioli with it. I loved it. It turned out delicious. But I hd too much dough, I didn't use almost half the dough. Then I wrapped it again in plastic wrap and left it in the fridge, the next morning the dough turned grey. Does someone know why this happened? And does this mean I can never make the dough 1 day in advance? Because it turned grey in only 12 hours.


What is so special about doing it straight on the worktop?, I see that all the time on youtube videos and it just seems messy. What is wrong with starting off in a bowl?

I am actually completely taken aback by Gordon recommending that you might put truffle oil in the pasta dough. This is coming from a man who said that truffle oil is "One of the most pungent, ridiculous ingredients known to a chef." I hope Gordon sees this.

Excellent lesson that exemplifies the energy and effort required to make delicious pasta! Question: can you please advise on how to make the pasta dough without egg? We have an egg allergy in our house.

Gordon Ramsey & Carlos Santana best Masters so far..PURE MAGIC in their words and expressions! Worth it the whole course only for them.

I managed to find Type 00 flour, and what a difference! I've been making fresh pasta every 1-2 weeks, watching this video every time, and Gordon is right. This is all about touch and getting to know the dough. He suggested adding some herbs, or flavoured salt. I decided to try some dried tarragon and it was delicious!


I have seen this same lesson with massimo botturo but Gordon explains this so much better than massimo!

Only problem with cooking in a truck sleeper I can’t really make fresh pasta. Space is at a premium and keeping my machine onboard the truck is a sad little inconvenience. I keep my store bought pasta in a plastic container.

I discovered the idea of a bit of olive oil by experimentation ... recipes for pasta dough before never caled for the oil.

I tried this on Sunday night and it was so much fun! What do you think? Trying to get 00 flour in South Africa is difficult (unless some fellow South Africans can advise?) and a chef friend said I can use bread flour, just blitz it in a blender to make it finer.
