    We love this book. There are some wonderful flavours but the recipes are quick and easy. We learnt some great cooking tips from the shows and the first section in each chapter.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Sichuan chicken thighs

    • Astrid5555 on January 24, 2016

      These were delicious! A little too spicy for the kids, but very, very good with a subtle orange note from the orange zest. Weeknight friendly when marinated ahead of time.

  • Blueberry and ricotta pancakes with yoghurt and honey

    • Astrid5555 on July 23, 2017

      These were nice and fairly quick to make, but did not top our favourite "Multigrain pancakes" from "Supernatural Everday". However, we really liked the honey and yogurt addition, something we will keep for all other future pancakes.

    • Raquelcooks on December 22, 2020

      Everyone was very disappointed with the flavour, very bland.

  • Beef empanadas

    • FJT on March 13, 2013

      Great filling - very tasty. I'll make the empanadas larger next time - there was a lot of pastry for the amount of filling in the suggested size. Went down very well with everyone.

    • sharifah on April 04, 2013

      I thought the filling was a bit tasteless. I couldn't taste the spices even though I put in a touch more spices than the 'pinch' he specified. I made the empanadas slightly smaller - 10 cm instead of 11 cm and I used up all the pastry and filling. Turned out well when baked, looked like the photo. Even though I wasn't keen on this, it went down well with everyone.

    • pennyvr on September 06, 2014

      I doubled the spices, which made the chilli dominate - will try doubling the other spices next time and maybe 1.5 times the chilli. I replaced half the mince with canned red kidney beans, drained and slightly mashed, for a vegetarian version. It worked well.

  • Chilli beef lettuce wraps

    • chawkins on May 12, 2021

      These were pretty good. You do need to crisp the meat mixture so that you can rehydrate with that delicious dip.

    • pennyvr on December 20, 2014

      Double the dressing - it's delicious.

    • pennyvr on December 20, 2014

      Vegetarian versions - I've tried a few mince substitutes and the best I've found is vegetarian mince. Tofu also works but the dressing doesn't soak in very well.

    • MmeFleiss on March 06, 2015

      My favorite lettuce wrap recipe. On the show (but not mentioned in the book) he mentions that you should cook the meat until it is really dry and well-browned. I forgot to do this the second time I made this and it was subpar.

    • etcjm on April 11, 2019

      Great. As Gordon says on the programme "take the meat far beyond you have ever taken it before" to make it crispy. As already said in another note the dip is delicious and will get used for other dishes. I go easy on the sesame because I'm just not keen and I added more lime but then my limes were useless! Not enough for four - would be a starter really.

  • Stuffed roast chicken

    • Smittieg on January 05, 2014

      A comfort food recipe with style. The stuffing becomes a side-dish on its own, needing just a fresh green salad to complete the meal. On its way to becoming a family favourite.

  • Pork chops with peppers

    • slouj on April 25, 2021

      Such a delicious recipe! The peppers can be made in advance which makes for very easy serving. Once the pork chops are resting, deglaze the pan with a small splash of water and then add the peppers to warm through in the meat juices.

  • Spicy sausage rice

    • slouj on October 06, 2019

      A really good, quick meal for midweek. Last time I made it, I didn’t have enough sausages so I added some plain mincemeat along with chilli flakes, paprika, fennel seeds and dried rosemary to spice it. The result was delicious!

  • Cheat's soufflé with three cheeses

    • pennyvr on September 25, 2016

      Delicious and surprisingly quick and easy

  • Easy arancini

    • pennyvr on April 23, 2014

      I was low on breadcrumbs so mixed some polenta with the breadcrumbs I had. It worked well!

  • Beef tacos with wasabi mayo

    • pennyvr on February 03, 2014

      I substituted red kidney beans for beef to create a vegetarian version.

  • Vietnamese-style beef baguette

    • pennyvr on March 23, 2014

      Very messy to eat

  • Leek and pancetta quiche

    • Hally on June 19, 2014

      This is a lovely substantial quiche.

  • Slow-roasted pork belly with fennel

    • MmeFleiss on March 15, 2015

      The pork was succulent with a great crispy skin; the sauce was way too salty--definitely needs a light hand with the salt.

  • Noodles with chilli, ginger and lemongrass

    • hsteel on December 29, 2015

      Just made this for lunch. It was super easy and surprisingly tasty. Mine was much more yellow than the picture in the book. Surely due to the tumeric. Not sure why his wasn't. I had to use coconut milk since I didn't have cream. I also left out the chilli and just use a few red pepper flakes. Not a fan of heat :) I ate it with very fine rice noodles, but I think next time I'd use thicker cut ones. This would also make a good Thai curry broth, I think. I'd stir fry up some vegetables (and meat if you want) and serve over rice.

    • etcjm on September 07, 2019

      Very good. I didn't fry the noodles just prepared them normally. I would agree in this instance thicker noodles would be better. I doubled because it's only for 2 and was careful with the chilli and ginger, however it ended up with no heat. I know next time as it will be made again. Very easy and if you have the coconut cream, can be made with store cupboard ingredients. Served with steamed salmon and broccoli.

  • Curry-spiced sweetcorn soup

    • LadyCJKT on December 31, 2017

      A delicious, comforting and easy soup to cook.

  • Pork and prawn meatballs in aromatic broth

    • LadyCJKT on December 31, 2017

      Delicious recipe and quite easy to make. We have half the mixture left over that we plan to use for dumplings.

  • Slow-cooked beef short ribs

    • ChristineL32707 on January 25, 2020

      Added carrots, parsnips and leeks. Used low sodium chicken broth (all I had) - next time use beef stock! Reduced “gravy” after it was cooked. SO DELICIOUS! Serve with mashed potatoes or crusty bread next time - anything to soak up the lovely gravy.

      ...though fussy, all but guarantees your success. One caveat, though? Ramsay's recipe also includes instructions for a separate wine sauce...I didn't love it or think it was worth the time. Skip it.
