Notes about Recipes in this book

  • 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.

  • Steak sandwiches

    • imaluckyducky on January 18, 2023

      5 stars. Really exceptionally good. Also added horseradish to the mayo/mustard combo and had to use red wine vinegar in the tomato onion relish with great success.

    • averythingcooks on April 10, 2022

      I came here with steak sandwiches planned and wanted to try his condiments. We used a grilled striploin, ciabatta buns and some pickled onions from a different book. The creamy spread was good but I did punch it up with a spoonful of horseradish. The real winner is the cherry tomato relish which includes a little hot chile, sherry vinegar & fresh basil - it was great on the sandwiches and I would make it again for lots of different uses.

  • Jerk chicken

    • Frogcake on May 05, 2019

      This was really good. I didn’t have any chili peppers so I added 2 tsp of dried crushed chilies. The end result was complex, deep umami taste and just the right amount of punch. My chicken marinated for 48 hours. Definitely a repeat.

  • Coriander, ginger, and chile butter chicken

    • averythingcooks on June 03, 2021

      I marinated the chicken thighs overnight, served it over rice and we really did enjoy the flavours. BUT rather than make a veg for the side, I stir fried a mix of red onion, red & yellow peppers and broccoli and then mixed that into the chicken with frozen peas at the end while heating the remains of the marinade. This made it a complete one bowl dinner (which is what I basically wanted).

  • Bacon, pea and goat cheese frittata

    • averythingcooks on October 05, 2020

      This turned into a good light dinner but it needed some finagling. I added a few steamed, chopped mini potatoes and some diced onion & jalapeño to the bacon as it crisped. I ended up using 6 eggs instead of the 4 I intended to use for a 1/2 recipe and added some hot sauce to them. I was sceptical about grating the chunk of frozen goat cheese but it worked perfectly on my rasp. The main thing we both said after 2 bites was ....salt! He doesn’t call for any and I assumed it was because of the bacon & parm - but yes ....it was under seasoned. Note added to the book for next time.

  • Spicy sausage rice

    • averythingcooks on March 25, 2017

      This is a really nice winter supper to clean out the fridge ( peppers, onions other stir fry type veg etc from the crisper). I use a sausage made by my butcher called "sweet with heat". It is a great weeknight dinner.

  • Spicy meatball soup

    • averythingcooks on January 05, 2020

      I cut this in 1/2 using gr. beef + mild Italian sausage for the meatballs and used a mix of diced celery, carrots & red pepper in place of the zucchini. I am at the end of a bottle of chipotle hot sauce so used that in place of the actual chilies. I have a wonderful flavour bomb we call "rib broth" (saved in the freezer after slow cooker ribs) which I topped up with chicken broth. The whole can of corn went in & after sitting overnight, a bit more hot sauce was added. It is a really hearty bowl of soup with delicious meatballs and a veggie laden broth. A definite make again!

  • Pork chops with peppers

    • averythingcooks on October 04, 2020

      This butter basting technique (with garlic & fresh thyme) gave us 2 juicy & flavourful pork chops with a sweet/sour pepper & onion mix on the side. With some oven roasted mini potatoes, this was a simple but very tasty dinner.

  • Sichuan chicken thighs

    • averythingcooks on January 08, 2022

      I made these tasty marinated chicken thighs in their spicy, hot chile, ginger, garlic sauce and then added a bunch of things that I had prepped earlier in the day to the chicken pan...sauteed red onions, yellow peppers & broccoli, steamed rice noodles, chopped roasted red pepper, a handful of frozen corn, some chopped frozen spinach and chopped peanuts. The result was a really flavourful dinner bowl of chicken and lots of veg.

  • Miso salmon

    • mfranklin125 on December 10, 2019

      I did this with halibut. And vegetable broth. Added garlic. Cooked veggies separately. Added white wine too. And lime squeezed instead of leaves.

  • Blueberry and ricotta pancakes with yogurt and honey

    • mfranklin125 on February 10, 2017


    • mfranklin125 on February 10, 2017

      I used less sugar or can do stevia even or just vanilla extract

  • Moroccan lamb with sweet potatoes and raisins

    • Tasty123 on July 10, 2020

      Must have done something wrong as we didn’t care for this one.

  • Meatballs in fragrant coconut broth

    • Tasty123 on July 10, 2020

      Really yummy. I enjoyed this tho I might go for nonLight coconut milk next time

Publishers Text

Based on a new cooking show, this book will give experienced as well as novice cooks the desire, confidence and inspiration to get cooking. Ramsay will offer simple, accessible recipes with a "wow" factor. Gordon has travelled the world from India and the Far East to LA and Europe, and the recipes in this book will draw all these culinary influences together to show us simple, vibrant and delicious recipes that reflect the way we eat today. For example: Miso braised salmon fillet with Asian vegetables, Pork and Bacon slider with home made BBQ sauce, Curried Sweetcorn Soup, Wild Mushroom Risotto Arrancini, and Baked Lemon Cheesecake with Raspberries.

Each chapter will concentrate on a different area of cooking--from the classics to the secret of cooking with Chili and spice, through roasting, baking, and helpful sections on cooking good food for less and cooking for a crowd. Woven into the book will be useful tricks and tips--from ways to save time and money, to cleaning and prepping ingredients, to pan frying like a pro.

Stuffed full of delicious recipes, invaluable tips and lashings of Gordon's trademark cheeky wit, Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking is the ultimate cooking lesson from the ultimate chef.
